Years ago a friend of my mom’s made several snowflakes from crocheted cotton. I still have them on my tree each year and I LOVE them. Over the years I have added a couple, but often the patterns are hard to follow or require stiffening.
I am SO EXCITED about this week’s snowflake because it is EASY and turns out ready to hang when you are done.
With only three rounds, this pattern works up super quick. I used RHSS worsted weight yarn and an I (5.5mm) hook. It ended up measuring 5.5″ from tip to tip. These are perfect for hanging on a tree, tying on packages, decorating windows, adding to beanies, headbands, and so much more.
The designer made several different sizes by using different materials. You need to see her creations! So pretty. Scroll down for the free pattern link and an offer from the designer.
The Ornament Quest
Each Thursday in 2021, join me in making a different ornament so we can have a fun collection at the end of the year. All of the weekly ornaments will be free to view online. The links will be added to my “Calendar of Events” page for easy access.
- Weeks 1 & 2: The first two Thursdays of each month will feature a variety of ornaments.
- Week 3: Since there are many cute snowflakes I have chosen to feature a different one on the third Thursday of each month. These will be fun to hang in a window as well as on a tree.
- Week 4: I also like using ornaments as gift tags so on the fourth Thursday of each month I will feature an ornament that I think would be cute on a package. You can choose to do whatever you would like tho.
- Extra: Since there are TONS of really cute paid ornaments, I will be featuring those any time there is a fifth Thursday. Please remember patterns are not to be shared. Selling patterns is how designers make a living.
How the ornaments are chosen: I asked in our snappy facebook group, “Totally Snappy“, for people to share links to ornaments they had seen and wish to make. I also wrote down some of my favorite ornaments people had made in our last ornament swap.
