"Onion Snow" is a Pennsylvania Dutch term that refers to the final snowfall before Spring. This usually occurs in late March or early April. "Onion Snow" is described as enormous, light, fluffy flakes of snow. It is said that when you see the "Onion Snow" it is safe to start planting onions.
This pattern represents the huge, fluffy flakes and is part of my Sock A Month challenge. This yarn represents April's birthstone, the diamond. With just a hint of sparkle in the yarn, it is also reminiscent of that beautiful "Onion Snow".
The stitch count of this pattern does not change, you will adjust the size by adjusting the needle size used.

Hello! My name is Jackie Murton. I am happily married to a wonderful man who happily feeds my yarn addiction. We have 3 great kids. I am currently learning to spin on both a spindle and an antique wheel a friend spotted for me at a craft show.
I began knitting and crocheting while on bed rest with my first child. I decided to start writing patterns when I found myself constantly changing written patterns so that I could knit them seamlessly (I don't like sewing seams :-D).
I design and write knitting patterns with a focus on 1 skein seamless and nearly seamless knits. Most of my patterns are beginner level. I will occasionally design more advanced patterns as well as some crochet patterns.
