Happy Holidays everyone!

I have a new Motif of the Month, perfect for winter time. It’s the Snowflake Motif.

Granny squares, doilies, and snowflakes have been around forever. Making a snowflake in crochet is one of those rights of passage every crocheter should try once, so don’t you think it’s time?

This snowflake (made in yellow so you can see the stitches in my video tutorial) is fairly traditional and easy to work up in less than a hour. The snowflake in the video is made with fingering weight yarn, but you can use crochet thread as well. Or even go worsted weight and make an applique for a beanie or scarf.

Just as cute in worsted, only bigger.

Plus if you’ve ever wondered how to get your snowflakes super stiff, I show you how to block with  spray starch at the end of the video. Click on any picture to go download the pattern and watch the video.
