Snowflakes are not just for Christmas any more. I designed this afghan because snowflakes are my favorite winter theme, as well as my favorite Christmas theme. The idea haunted me and I designed the afghan and then had to wait for the inspiration for the border. I did not want to do just a "single crochet around the out side edge". The border is a unique design of my own, which duplicates the slip stitch joining of the motifs. I have used it in other designs since, including a beach shoulder bag .As well as the pattern for the hexagon motif, there are instructions for half-motif fillers on the long edges, so you will not have those big gaps between the hexagons.
Finished afghan measures about 45" by 61".
I have this pattern already made, or made to order, in my Etsy shop at http://etsy.com/shop/originalsbyterry, as well as other hand-made items, including woodworking, from my own designs.
Be sure to check out the rest of the crochet designs in my shop, as well as my other original knit, crochet, and needlepoint patterns.
If you are interested in something hand-made, I do have a selection of knit, crochet, and woodworking items which I have made from my own designs in my shop at http://etsy.com/shop/originalsbyterry.

I started knitting at age 8 and learned all the rest as I went along - crocheting, sewing, tatting, latch hook, macrame, quilting, needlepoint, leather work, and woodworking. I became a professional seamstress and got into quilting big-time. These days, I mostly concentrate on knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, quilting, and woodworking. I began doing my own designing when I was laid up in a full leg cast. Since then, I have created over 200 of my own designs in various mediums, the patterns for which I sell everywhere and anywhere. I decided to sell my patterns individually, since I hate to have to buy an entire book to get the one or two that I want.
I do sell some hand-made items from my own designs, including woodworking items made by myself, at:
