The name of this pattern is a movie quote, of course. And while I was forced to watch said movie significantly more often than I would have liked, snow and ice are something I long for. And as we do not get any, why not at least knit my own personal flurry of snow for my feet?

These fun winter socks are knit cuff down, stranding no more than two colours at a time. After a graphic snowman motif on the leg, the foot is covered in an easy and engaging lice colourwork pattern. The buttons on the snowmen are added by duplicate stitching after the socks are finished.

approx. 50g of MC yarn (blue)
approx. 40g of CC1 yarn (white)
approx. 5g of CC2 yarn (black)
2.5mm DPNs or needles for magic loop or size required to get gauge
2mm DPNs or needles for magic loop or size required to get gauge
tapestry needle

Any regular fingering weight sock yarn in solid or semisolid colours will work well. Using variegated or even speckled yarns might also lead to interesting results, but keep the contrast between the colours used next to each other high enough.

One size with a stitch count of 72. The foot circumference at the suggested gauge is 20cm. Length can easily be adjusted in the lice pattern part.
