An easy and quick way to crochet and stiffen a snowflake ornament for your tree!

Check out the blog post with the WRITTEN PATTERN: https://blog.expressionfiberarts.com/...

You'll need some thin yarn (I used pure cashmere I had leftover from a scarf project:

And a size US 0 hook.

You can substitute larger yarn and a bigger hook if you want your snowflakes to be jumbo sized!

Have a great day, my lovely!


If you made it this far, I have the pattern written down for you. Here we go:

Start with a magic circle or wind yarn around finger three times with end of yarn at tip of finger. Slide hook under yarn and pull third loop under the first two loops then slide off finger.

Round 1: Chain 5, counts as first double crochet, chain 2. *Double crochet through both loops, chain 2. Repeat from * four more times. Gently pull tail to gather then slip stitch into chain 5 to join.

Round 2: Chain 3 and work 3 double crochet in chain 2 space, chain 2. *Work four double crochet in next chain 2 space, chain 2. Repeat from * four more times. Join to top of chain three.

Round 3: * Slip stitch in each double crochet across to chain 2 space and slip stitch in chain 2 space. Chain 3, slip stitch, chain 5, slip stitch, chain 7, slip stitch, chain 5, slip stitch, chain 3 slip stitch, all in same chain 2 space. Repeat from * five more times, cut yarn leaving a long tail and pull through loop.

To create loop to hang, use darning needle to weave end through one of the points. Do the same with the other end and tie.

To block, you can dampen the snowflake with just water and pin at each point to a piece of cardboard and let dry. For a stiffer snowflake it can be blocked using equal parts water and glue. You can also sprinkle with glitter for a sparkly snowflake after applying the glue/water mixture
