    About Schneeflöckchen

    This simple and beginner-friendly colourwork hat is worked from the brim to the crown. The easy colourwork motif throughout the hat is reminiscent of snowfall and the pattern in the crown resembles a snowflake. The brim is worked as a double brim for extra warmth and comfort. The hat is fitted but could also be worked as a slouchy beanie by simply adding length to the body of the hat.

    Here's Annika, the designer of Schneeflöckchen, about her beautiful pattern:

    "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. I decided to name the pattern “Schneeflöckchen” which means “little snowflake” in German because I knit the first sample of this hat design for my daughter."

    Easy pattern, stylish hat

    This was an easy pattern that worked up very quickly. The doubled brim achieved through a provisional cast on that is later joined with the working stitches after the ribbed brim is knit presents the only finicky part, but should not be a problem for the average knitter.

    In my queue!

    I think this hat has just the perfect amount of squishy comfort and color for a quick project!

    Looking forward to knitting this project.

    The pattern looks well written and pretty easy. I'm hoping to get to knitting it in the new year; maybe make a few for next year's Christmas gifts. Where I live, hats are a necessary Christmas accessory. No one likes frozen ears, lol!
