Crochet Cute Little Snowflakes Faster Than They Can Fall

If you’re looking at your holiday project list and starting to panic, we’ve got you! These crochet snowflakes are fast, easy, cute and totally giftable. Stitch up a flurry and show that list who’s in charge.

Quick Crochet Snowflake Pattern


  • 2.25 mm crochet hook
  • Fingering weight yarn (between 5 and 10 meters, depending on gauge; we used Cloudborn Superwash Merino Fingering)
  • Pro Tip: You can use any hook/yarn combination you prefer. If you crochet loosely, use a smaller hook than suggested for the yarn so your snowflake isn’t floppy.


  • Ch – Chain
  • Rnd – Round
  • Sc – Single crochet
  • Sl st – Slip stitch
  • St/sts – Stitch/stitches
  • () and * – Repeat instructions between parentheses and asterisks the number of times specified
  • {} – Total number of stitches in the round
  • Instructions

    Crochet Snowflake Round 1

    Start with a magic ring.

    Rnd 1: Make 6 sc into the ring. Join to the first sc with a sl st. {6 sc}

    Crochet Snowflake Round 2a

    Rnd 2: Ch 6. (Sl st in the next st, ch 6) 5 times.

      Crochet Snowflake Round 2b

    To join, sl st into the back of the sl st join from the previous round. {6 ch-6 spaces}

    Crochet Snowflake Round 3

    Rnd 3: (3 sc, ch 3, 3 sc) into each ch-6 space. Join to the first sc with a sl st. {36 sc and 6 ch-3 spaces}

    Crochet Snowflake Round 4a

    Rnd 4: Sl st in the next 2 sts and in the ch-3 space.

    Crochet Snowflake Round 4b

    (Ch 4, sl st, ch 6, sl st, ch 4, sl st) into the same ch-3 space. 

    Crochet Snowflake Round 4c

    Sl st in the next 2 sts, then skip the next 2 sts (indicated with arrows in the photo above).


    *Sl st in the next 2 sts and in the ch-3 space. (Ch 4, sl st, ch 6, sl st, ch 4, sl st) into the same ch-3 space. Sl st in the next 2 sts and skip the next 2 sts.* Repeat from * to * 4 more times.

    Crochet Snowflake Round 4d

    Join to the next sl st with a sl st (indicated with an arrow in the photo above). {6 ch-6 spaces and 12 ch-4 spaces}

    Crochet Snowflake Round 4e

    Fasten off and weave in your ends. If you stitch tightly and use a dense yarn like cotton, you won’t have to block your crochet snowflakes. If you crochet loosely, or you prefer a crisp, pointy snowflake, go ahead and block ’em. Want them even stiffer? Use liquid starch.
