Decorate your home with beautiful snowflake ornaments this holiday season with this free crochet snowflake pattern. This crochet motif is very easy and quick to make, so create a bunch and hang them on your tree or adorn the windows.
I crocheted my Easy Delicate Crochet Snowflake with cotton thread size 20 and a steel crochet hook size 4 and the finished snowflake measures 8 cm (about 3,14 inches) in diameter, but you can make it in a variety of colors and yarn weights.
Besides your thread and hook, you will also need a needle to weave in loose ends and a pair of scissors, as well as white pva glue (school glue) or your favorite starch, stainless steel pins, plastic wrap and some kind of blocking board in order to block your snowflakes.

AD-Free, Print Ready PDF version of this pattern is available here.

Blocking
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 in order to block your snowflakes. Download this blocking template and print it out. It will help you make your snowflakes symmetrical. Tape it on your blocking board and then cover it with plastic wrap.
Prepare a mix of equal amounts of white craft glue and water or use your preferred starch.
Soak the snowflake in the solution, squeeze out the excess and spread out the snowflake on the plastic wrap-covered pinning board, having right side facing up. Use stainless steel pins and start by pinning the center. Work your way out pinning as you go until you reach the desired look. Let dry completely. Remove from the board.
Attach a piece of thread to hang the snowflake.

The stiffening solution will permanently damage your pins, so it’s best to set the used ones aside for use in future starching projects.
