Quick Crochet Snowflake Pattern

Materials:

Pro tip: You can use any hook/yarn combination you prefer. If you crochet loosely, I suggest that you use a smaller hook than suggested for the yarn, otherwise your snowflake will be floppy.

Abbreviations

  • Ch – Chain
  • Rnd – Round
  • Sc – Single crochet
  • Sl st – Slip stitch

Instructions

Start with a magic ring .
Rnd 1: Make 6 sc into the ring. Join to the first sc with a sl st. {6 sc}

Rnd 2: Ch 6. (Sl st in the next st, ch 6) 5 times. 

To join, sl st into the back of the sl st join from the previous round. {6 ch-6 spaces}

Rnd 3: (3 sc, ch 3, 3 sc) into each ch-6 space. Join to the first sc with a sl st. {36 sc and 6 ch-3 spaces}

Rnd 4: Sl st in the next 2 sts and in the ch-3 space.

(Ch 4, sl st, ch 6, sl st, ch 4, sl st) into the same ch-3 space. 

Sl st in the next 2 sts, then skip the next 2 sts (indicated with arrows in the photo above). 

*Sl st in the next 2 sts and in the ch-3 space. (Ch 4, sl st, ch 6, sl st, ch 4, sl st) into the same ch-3 space. Sl st in the next 2 sts and skip the next 2 sts.* Repeat from * to * 4 more times.

Join to the next sl st with a sl st (indicated with an arrow in the photo above). {6 ch-6 spaces and 12 ch-4 spaces}

Fasten off and weave in your ends. If you stitch tightly and use a dense yarn like cotton, you won't have to block your crochet snowflakes. If you crochet loosely, or you prefer a crisp, pointy snowflake, go ahead and block 'em . Want them even stiffer? Use liquid starch.

Warm, cozy snowflakes may sound like a contradiction, but trust us: wool snowflakes are worth the effort. These lacy beauties look equally good hanging from a tree or framed in a window. Why not knit up a few and create your own winter wonderland?
