What was your inspiration?
Snowflakes are my favorite projects to make. I love the intricacy of snowflakes and that no two snowflakes are alike!
What are you most proud of?
I enjoy playing around with the different stitches to see each pattern take shape. Connecting snowflakes with an icicle or another snowflake makes an elegant hanging ornament.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Snowflakes are a great project for the intermediate crocheter. Be sure to keep track of which step you're on in each of the rounds.
This snowflake and icicle are part of the Fun & Fancy Flakes No. 3 pattern set. The pattern is written in U.S. terms.
