How to Crochet a Snowflake

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

Darning needle

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.

    I was scrolling around on face book and any yarn or knitting I stop to look at. Always interested in something new.
    My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was a child but I taught myself how to knit about 5 yrs ago

    My mother and I both took a knitting class back when I was about 12 back in the 60s. She preferred sewing and didn’t stick with it. I also stopped until later in life and now am totally addicted. Always have at least two projects on needles at the same time. Love luxury yarns and your colors along with the photos that inspired you leave me drooling!

    I’ve been following you for a while (you are all over my Pinterest!) and today, when I saw the dying with Koolaid post I was thrilled — it’s a project I can do with my grandson while also giving him something I’ve crocheted. Then I realized I really need to say thank you! Of course your yarns are glorious and I will treat myself to some soon, and I realize it’s your business….but Chandi, your sparkling spirit shines through every post and your generosity with time and tutoring is simply grand. Much love and admiration from the soon-to-be snowy east coast!

    Thanks for this video tutorial, I have trouble following patters with the difference between UK and USA notation so being able to follow a video is so helpful. These will be lovely for Christmas although I live in a hot part of Australia so no snow here! xx
