An Intricate Snowflake To Crochet!

Here's a sweet little 4" snowflake to crochet in size 20 thread. The example shown is Lizbeth size 20 in white. I love it for snowflakes because it has so much crispness you don't need to starch!

Crochet it in a larger size thread for a mini doily!

I just picked this up for myself and don't know how I ever lived without it! You can tie on a cord in the holder to wear around your neck or your wrist. The thread feeds so smoothly and never gets dirty! I LOVE this product!!

A Word About Yarn & Thread Selection...

You may use different yarns such as scrap yarns or threads with good results! Just make sure to keep them similar in weight and thickness so as not to throw off the pattern.

I recently purchased this for myself. It's handy to know how much yarn a given project requires when you're going to be making more than one!

A Note From Your Designer...

Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and this pattern is my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at Craftsy.com to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.

Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post this pattern anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.

I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?

So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila

      Beautiful hub and project! I've done some crochet snowflakes years ago and they are a fun and (usually) quick project. I'll have to pick up the hooks again soon. Voted up and beautiful!
