I'd like to make some snowflake ornaments, but I've never crocheted with the thin thread and small hooks.
Anyone have a favorite pattern that you can point me in the direction of?
They're for next year, so no rush.
Thanks!

Holly

If you Google "free crochet snowflake pattern" you'll find hundreds of patterns. Start with something simple and work up. It's lots of fun - good luck!

Look at these:
http://fabact.co/christmas/sno...ochetsnowflakes.html

Starting at the top and counting across rows, I have made #s 4,
17, 18, 19, 20.
Of those, the easiest are - oh well - I think that those are all easy. But do # 17 first.

Click on each snowflake for the directions for that snowflake.

(#s 1 and 2 look easiest too!)

Try this forum at Crochetville, you will need to join the group, but is enjoyable, the ladies sure know their stuff, and of course, there are others to be made that are simple, start there, and not so many picots. You will blossom later making easy ones first. See what you think, and take your time, I have done blizzards of flakes. They can last forever if done right.

Thanks for the links, ladies! I like the idea of making a snowflake every week!
I just have to finish the baby afghan I'm working on, then I'm free to do fun things!

Big company that I worked for in the past. You do not know how disappointed I was when I heard "Christmas presents." OH MY! Several people gave small token gifts. I started to work December 1, so did nothing the first year. One year, I made quite a few snowflakes. I started in January so that I would not be working on them at the last minute!
