Sunny Snowflake Pattern

Home / FREE Patterns / Sunny Snowflake Pattern

Hey there! ‘Tis the season to be jolly fa la la la laa la la la laa, okay I don’t want to get too carried away. So with that in mind, I came up with a snowflake pattern and here it is…

Materials:

  • Crochet yarn of your choosing
  • Hook size to correspond with yarn
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle
  • Blocking materials if wanting to block (something to pin snowflake to, pins, iron {or your method and materials for blocking})

Notes:

  • This pattern is written in US & UK terms.
  • It is made up in rounds (not continual)
  • Each snowflake will be a different size, depending on yarn, hook and tension.

Stitches Used:

Forgot to add space (sp) and skip (sk)

This would be the perfect time to block the snowflake if that’s what you plan to do 🙂

I made this design in anticipation of making a few garlands for around the house, but these would look great as decorations on the tree, coasters, etc. Feel free to follow me on Instagram @theloopystitch and fb The Loopy Stitch Crochet Designs. And if you do make these I’d love to see please hashtag #sunnysnowflake  (living on the Sunshine Coast, I will never see a snowflake here) if you use Instagram or please leave a comment 🙂 would love to know what you think.

Happy Crocheting xo
