Materials

  • crochet thread
  • size "2" crochet hook
  • spray starch
  • straight pins
  • thick piece of cardboard or styrofoam board
  • glitter
  • clear glue (suitable to apply glitter)

NOTE: All-in-one glitter glue can be substituted for glitter and clear glue.


Instructions

Depending on which crochet thread you use, the size of these snowflakes can vary anywhere from 4-5 inches in diameter to as much as 8 inches. For example, using lightweight crochet thread, Snowflake No. 4 would be approximately 5 inches in diameter. Using a heavier crochet thread could add another inch or so to the overall size.

You can also change the size and "lacy" effect by simply using a larger crochet hook.

When the snowflakes are finished, use pins to stretch and shape them. Spray them with starch so they'll hold their shape. To add "sparkle", add glitter.

Double Treble Stitch (dtr) - Yarn over hook 3 times, then insert hook into next stitch (1). Yarn over hook and draw yarn through stitch - there are five loops on the hook (2).

Loop yarn over hook and draw through two loops (there are now four loops remaining on the hook). Yarn over hook and draw through two loops (there are now three loops remaining on the hook). Yarn over hook and draw through two loops (there are now two loops remaining on the hook). Again, loop yarn over hook and draw through the last two loops on the hook (there is now one loop remaining.) This completes one double treble crochet.

Triple Treble Stitch (trtr) - Work the same as you would the double treble stitch above except start with yarn over hook 4 times instead of 3.
