The 2011 SheilaSparkles Christmas Snowflake

Every year, I design one special ornament for Christmas to share with the crochet world. Here is this year's offering, a little rose in snow snowflake with Swarovski crystal accents. I plan on making several in different color combinations for gifts. Why don't you make a few to tuck into Christmas cards for very special friends or relatives!

The pattern is rated Intermediate because it contains Double Treble Crochet.

I'm offering completed crocheted beaded snowflakes, just see the "No Time To Crochet" section below.

I hope you enjoy this year's ornament, and Merry Christmas! -Sheila

A Word About Thread Selection...

Using different brands or types of thread works fine with this project... just try to keep them of consistent size and thickness!

The Most Important Thing

When your work of art is done, you might want to stiffen it slightly. It's optional of course.
