Christmas is right around the corner and it’s never too early to be prepared. Handmade holiday ornaments are so much fun to make and they are perfect as gifts for friends and family. They will be appreciated and cherished for years to come. This crochet motif is very easy and quick to make, a perfect pattern for beginners. It is one of the three snowflake patterns that can be found in Set No5.
It can be made in a variety of colors and yarn weights. I crocheted it with cotton thread size 10 and a 2 mm crochet hook and its final size is 9 cm (about 3,5 inches) in diameter. Besides the thread and hook, you will also need a needle to weave in loose ends and a pair of scissors.
In order to stiffen and block the snowflakes you will need white pva glue (school glue) or your favorite starch, stainless steel pins or toothpicks, plastic wrap and some kind of blocking board.
