A biscornu is a strangely shaped little object which is really quite simple. It is two squares sewn (bound off) together while mis-matching the corner points and centers of the sides.
This ornament is knit in two pieces - each of them squares made in the round with decreases to make the points for the corners.
The pattern is charted two ways; first as a single chart for reference as to how each round is worked, and also as 4 separate and larger font-sized charts for each of the 4 different snowflakes which make up the square.
32 sts & 32 rows = 4" (10cm) over stranded colorwork
