12 Crafts of Christmas || Crochet Snowflake

We haven't had our first big snow of the season yet here in Tennessee, but I cannot wait for it to happen! There have been a few dustings, but it hasn't actually snowed yet. I decided to whip up some snowflakes in hopes that it would hurry the snow along.... we'll see how that goes. :) 

Anyways, these snowflakes are fairly easy to make and you can whip up several of them in a short amount of time. I was able to make six of them in about an hour. 



I think the best thing about these little snowflakes is how versatile they are. There are so many different uses for them! I'm planning on using a few as ornaments and the rest to decorate Christmas presents. :) You could also string them up as a garland or use them as a table decoration. There's just so many options! 



Here's the pattern! Hope you like it!

Materials:
- white worsted weight yarn
- size G crochet hook
- scissors

Directions:
- Round One: Work 6 sc into magic loop
- Round Two: 2 sc in each st around. (12 sc)
- Round Three: Slip next 2 stitches, *ch 9, sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 2 st, (ch 4, sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 2 st) twice, sc into remaining 5 ch of original ch 9, slip into next 2 stitches of circle* repeat from * to * 5 more times - you should have 6 flake "posts"
- Round Four: slip up to middle of 1st flake post, *ch 1around the post, ch 3, slip into middle of next flake post*, repeat from * to * around
- Bind off and weave in ends.



If you decide to make some of these guys, I'd love for you to share with me how you used them! Happy Black Friday everyone!
