Crochet Snowflake Motif Pattern

This is my first original pattern for a crocheted snowflake that is approximately 3in or 7.5cm. It is now in the Ravelry pattern library.

Stiffen the finished snowflake with fabric stiffener or a mixture of glue and water for an ornament, or stitch many together to create a lacy winter scarf, shawl, or even tablecloth.


The version pictured was made with size 10 crochet cotton in white and a #3 steel hook, but the original prototype was done with light worsted weight yarn and an H hook. You can try different yarn weights and hook sizes for different effects, but I do recommend cotton thread and a small steel hook if you want to use this snowflake as a tree ornament.
