Christmas Tree III: Crochet Snowflakes!

Can you tell it's my first Christmas with the ability to crochet?!

There are so many different patterns out there, I decided to try a few and see what I liked :)

I want to say some were more fiddly than others, but I think my skills just improved as I progressed ;)

They vary in size hugely, but were all created with 4 ply wool and a 2mm hook.

"Pretty Snowflake" (my favourite!)

And I stiffened them all slightly with a PVA and water spray, and hung with clear thread. I thought about adding a strand of sparkle thread to them, or spraying them with glitter. But there's something rather lovely about the plain white :)

So Christmassy :) Have you tried any snowflake patterns you'd recommend? I'd love to see your results!

Also, I just want to tag this in over at Julia Crossland's Being Creative Winter theme. Not sure how involved I'll be next year with the changes going on, but it's been a great experience and I've met some lovely people. Thanks for stopping by!

See what else is on my Christmas Tree!


  1. Love your simple soft silky snowflakes Helen. They look great as they are..pure and white..what a lot of variety - just like real ones - each one unique!
