Living From Glory To Glory Blog

 How to  make a Crochet Snowflake!


Here are a few of the snowflakes I have made!
I find it very relaxing and it is a small project that can be completed in a sitting!
I used a very lovely white with a bit of silvery thread in it!
It sparkles and looks very festive.
I made one for each of my grandchildren...
I downloaded this video link
 And I can pull it up if I have forgotten how to make them.
I made a few different ones and I liked this pattern best!
It has the nice points on it and I also did a chain link to be able to hang it!

You can make these on long winter evenings and have them ready for next year!

Tell me if you give this pattern a whirl!
