This dainty crochet pattern for “snowflakes” (which are really flowers), will add a touch of vintage charm to your tree or gifts this holiday season. Turn them into ornaments or gift tags depending on your needs


Materials Needed:
2.75mm steel hook for an ornament
1.5mm steel hook for a tag
20-25 yards Aunt Lydia’s #10 Crochet Thread in White, or color of your choice, per ornament.
needle for weaving in ends
Ornament hooks (optional)

Stitches Used:
sl st = slip stitch
ch= chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
2 dc cluster = dc2tog in the same stitch.
BPsc = back post single crochet

Gauge is not particularly important for these--they look cute in a variety of sizes.

Approximately 2.75” to 3” wide using a 2.75mm hook, or 2 1/4” across using a 1.5mm hook

Additional Notes:
-You can use this pattern to make gift tags as well as ornaments. I’d suggest using a smaller hook for the tags and a larger hook for the ornaments, but really it’s up to you. My ornament came out to be 2 1/4” across with I used #10 thread and a 1.5mm steel hook.
You could try using #20 or #30 cotton thread and a smaller steel hook if you want really tiny “snowflakes”. Likewise, you could use a 4mm (G) hook and #2 sport weight yarn to make larger “snowflakes”.
