The Snowfall Socks have a simple to memorize pattern that works up very quickly! This pattern is only written for 64 stitches. I recommend going up or down a needle size to adjust sizing.

This pattern is designed to be knit CUFF-DOWN, but can be knit TOE-UP if so desired. For cuff down socks, I ALWAYS recommend using the German Twisted Cast-On. It produces a very neat but also stretchy edge. It is my go-to for socks. Here is a very helpful tutorial if this is a new technique for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcwmCuIylII

I love knitting this pattern with 9” circular needles, but they’re definitely not necessary. See sizing for notes on needle sizes. (Please be aware that if you do use 9” circular needles, an additional needle with longer cord or DPN’s in the same size are necessary for knitting the toe.)

This pattern is written with a traditional Heel Flap & Gusset, but any heel may be substituted. Additionally, if you prefer a different toe shape, please adjust accordingly.
