Snowflake #5

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I enjoy playing around with the different stitches to see each pattern take shape. The snowflakes are also very versatile: they can be used for ornaments, gift decorations or even window hangers. 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 is part of the Fun & Fancy Flakes No. 3 pattern set. It is written in U.S. terms.
