Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

"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.
