Snowflakes are a classic part of any winter decor — and they’re even better when you’ve made ’em yourself. Each of these cuties is quick to stitch, uses scrap yarn and, because they’re not holiday-specific, can be left up through February. Hang ’em on your tree, display on your fireplace mantel or use as fun gift wrap embellishments!
1. Fast Flurries
Fast, easy, cute — this pattern’s got it all. If you can work in the round and know the most basic crochet stitches, you can whip up a blizzard of these little snowflakes in a flash.
2. 12 Days of Snowflakes
This pattern includes a dozen fun variations you can mix and match. Pro tip: the delicate snowflakes are made with crochet thread, so you may want to add fabric stiffener as the final step.
3. Winter Wonderland
Here’s a lovely pattern that holds its shape all on its own. Because they’re so small and stable, they work great as gift toppers or appliqués, and they could even be used as embellishments on greeting cards or holiday party invitations.
4. Delicate Delight
Choose from two versions of this dainty pattern and either work it in crochet thread or, if you’d like a larger snowflake, substitute any yarn weight. (Just be aware the size of the snowflake will change.) It’ll look so cute hanging on your tree!
5. Let’s Get Lit
Crochet all the cozy vibes with a snowflake pattern that’s designed to hold a tealight. Stitch up a bunch for your mantel or coffee table and your space will be festively lit.
6. Feelin’ Flakey
This pattern includes both an easy-to-follow photo tutorial and diagrams for those who like using charts. Get creative with your colors and make these flakes in an afternoon!
7. Wintry Windows
With its lack of open stitches in the center, this snowflake is designed as a coaster. But it can also work double-duty as pretty decorations, so don’t be afraid to display in your window or on a blank wall!
