Operation Snowflake

Each year to give as gifts to family and friends, I make snowflakes. I give one to each of my co-workers, which works well for remembering how many years I have worked at the library. They are a token of my love and appreciation. Generally I make about 50-60 or more. Quick 2-3 round snowflakes work best for making so many.

Starting in 2018, I designed my first snowflake, Oriel. It works up quick in 2 rounds using double crochet, single crochet, clusters, slip stitches and chains.

Then last year, I had a picture in mind for a snowflake of clusters, and I drew out a sketch and created the Nova Snowflake. This snowflake is worked up in 2 rounds, using clusters, chains, double crochet, and picots.

So then for this year, I drew out some sketches again. A picture came to mind and I set to work. Now to present this years snowflake, Vara. It works up in 3 quick rounds using single crochet, treble clusters, slip stitches, and chains.

To finish all the snowflakes, I mix 1 part glue (Elmer’s) to 2 parts water, then brush each side using a craft paintbrush. Finally pinning them to shape! Each of these patterns is free on Ravelry. Feel free to try them all! Though I make them in thread, they could easily be made in any weight yarn! As you download the patterns, please favorite them too! If have any questions, contact me here or on any social media!

I live with my family in Neenah, WI. My day job is working at our local library. I spend time everyday exploring the art of crochet. Everyday life inspires my work from family to nature.
