Crocheted Snowflakes

Share it Please

A couple of my good friends really, really love winter - so much so that they named their firstborn Snow (love her and her name!).  So when I saw this book, 100 Snowflakes to Crochet, I knew exactly who I needed to make some for.


Here are four of the crocheted snowflakes, before they are blocked and hardened.


I love how the rainbow crochet cotton turned out!  All of these were made with size 10 crochet cotton.


The book included a diagram to block them on.  I traced it four times, covered it with plastic wrap (to not glue the snowflakes to the paper), and taped it to a cardboard box (so pins could be stuck into it).


I dipped the snowflakes into a mixture of half water, half clear Elmer's glue before blocking. This made them stiff and more durable.



One of them is blue, Snow's favorite color!


They took about a day or two to fully dry.






I'm so happy with the results!  Hope everyone is having a fantastic winter.  I'm looking forward to my friends' annual winter party this weekend.  Last year it had just snowed heavily - with perfect snowman-making snow - and I made a snow dragon! =D  It was awesome.  Have a great weekend, everyone!  ~Kell
