Christmas is just around the corner and a lovely way to get into the festive spirit is to crochet your own snowflake ornaments, perfect not only as unique decorations but also as gifts for friends and family. Snowflake Naxos is one of the three snowflake patterns that can be found in Set No4.
I used cotton thread size 10 and a 2 mm crochet hook to make Snowflake Naxos and its size is 10,5 cm (about 4 inches) in diameter. You can change the size of your motif by using different yarn weights and hook sizes. Besides the yarn 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 foam/blocking board.
