07

what is THE thing that every winter makes a winter?

___

snow!

I made a few crocheted snowflakes:

07b

 

the one on the upper left is made from this pattern and the one on the upper right from this pattern. I especially liked the one on the left, it’s super quick and very pretty. I made several from different yarn weights and also with two strands held together to get a few different sizes.

 

the next two are made from scratch and I wrote down the pattern as I went:

 

07c

abbreviations:
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
ch6 – chain as many stitches as the number says, it this exp it’s 6
tr – treble crochet
slst – slip stitch
P2 – chain2, slst into 2nd chain from hook
P4 – chain 4, slst into 4th chain from hook
