Since I can remember, I have always loved snow. There is something magical about the first snowfall of the season. To watch the snowflakes fall always brightens up my mood and brings me joy. The pattern name “Schneeflöckchen” means “little snowflake” in German because the colourwork motif throughout the socks is reminiscent of snowfall. After designing the Schneeflöckchen hat (published in December 2021), I was so in love with the pattern that I wanted to create a pair of socks using the same pattern.

This simplistic and beginner-friendly sock design is worked cuff down. The sock is worked with two colours, with every third round being a colourwork round. The cuff and toe contain some subtle scallops for an added detail.
