This easy tutorial for crocheting a snowflake is sure to please.
These make great ornaments for your holiday decorations and you’ll want to whip out dozens of them.
And they’re fast, so you’ll have a whole slew of them in no time.
Have a watch:
Due to all the many requests, I had a reader write down the pattern if you prefer text to video:
Materials: Small amount of fingering weight yarn
Size 0 crochet hook
Pins and cardboard to block
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.
Enjoy, my sweet and thanks for stopping by.
