What was your inspiration?
Snowflakes are my favorite project to make. I love the intricacy of snowflakes and that no two snowflakes are the same!
What are you most proud of?
I enjoy playing around with the different stitches to see each pattern take shape. Snowflakes are also very versatile: you can add a attach a small snowflake to make a hanging ornament, connect several to create a garland, use them for gift decorations, etc.
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.
