Snöflinga is an easy pattern, beautifully written, super quick to knit and never ever boring. I knit it exactly as written and confess to not bothering to do a swatch beforehand. In hindsight I think some smaller needles might have been better for my small head but it is perfectly fine to wear as is.
I’m a real fan of the Cascade yarn, it is such a pleasure to use and pleasingly economical too. Although the instructions for the bobbles are straightforward there is a good video tutorial for making them right here.
