Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in the round

Pattern Description:

Snowfall is a two color winter motive beanie.
It has a two color ribbing, a little snow ornament border pattern, followed by big fir trees surrounded by falling snow
The pattern changes color going upwards. Ending in a lovely star like pattern at the top!
I think it(tm)s the most lovely top I(tm)ve made so far! And was surprised myself how it turned out.

It's knitted with 4-ply Acrylic yarn (Buttinette Versailles 214 yards/50g) but you can use anything similar (Merino or even soft 4-ply sock yarn).

For the bigger sizes you will need about 35 g per color.
Three sizes are included.

It will also look lovely in other color variations (dark red and white or black and white).
As there are only two colors used throughout the whole beanie it is also suitable for fair isle knitting beginners.

The smallest size leaves out the small snowflakes border at the bottom otherwise it would become too long.

If you like this pattern you may also like the snow landscape cowl.
Together they are a great set!

Give it a try and you will love it! :)
