About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Hello Lucy, one of the items I try to make each year are snowflakes. I worked your pattern using white crochet thread with a twist of sparkle thread added (don't know the name of it), and your pattern looks wonderful. Just some additional information that may be helpful, after pinning my snowflake to foil covered cardboard, I used water/paste combo (50/50) and dabbed-on with a small paint brush. It seems to work better for me than dipping in a starch mix. I like to include my snowflakes in Christmas cards or New Years cards, and also use as toppers to my Christmas packages. Also, another great resources for a beautiful assortment of snowflake patterns is 100 Snowflakes to Crochet by Caitlin Sainio. I have only made 2-3 so far, but they are all different sizes and look wonderful. Wishing you and your lovely family all the best in 2014.

BTW, I love your blog! I work fulltime and your blog is such a wonderful and inspiring resource for me (and others I am sure).


Thank you for this tutorial, I was surprised to find how easy it actually was :) My Mum is an avid follower of yours and has introduced me to your blog. Bit late maybe for snowflakes but hey, they are addictive, you're right, and thank you, I am certainly enjoying many joyful, festive moments making them.

We really love this crochet snowflake pattern – we've just featured it in our Top 10 Christmas Decorations post on our blog: http://bit.ly/1eVbjzF

We've also made some to put on the Christmas tree in our office!!

What superb little snowflakes. Great tutorial as always!


I have made these using 'plarn' that is using yarn made from plastic bags. Originally I used them as Christmas tree decorations but my daughter pinched some of them and uses them as coasters for drinks.
Ps how to make plarn? Consult youtube.

Sorry I'm late to the party, but I have just discovered this fantastic tutorial! Started immediately on a snowflake garland. Many Thanks!
(Ps. I expect you'll have some real snowflakes soon in the North East! Scotland first then the North East always!)

the snow flake will be a christmas gift to my nieces, because I want them to value hand made creations... love can be found also in little things

Is there an "idiot guide" to crochet? I can knit but don't know crochet and would love to be able to do the snowflakes. Many thanks.

Gaynor Roberts

I really want to make one of these but am a complete crochet beginner - can you recommend any online tutorials to get me to this point?!? Thanks so much xx

Thanks for sharing. I was looking for a snowflake pattern to put on some slippers I was crocheting. I did the first and third round to make a smaller snowflake but the pattern and pictures you had written out were so easy to follow. :)

Love them Lucy!!! Just made one and as usual your instructions are easy and perfect to follow. Hope to make lots more and thinking of adding them to Chirstmas presents as little tags that can then be hung on the tree....sooooo pretty!! Thanks for all the time you take to share your ideas with others. X


Just made my fist one out of a shiny blue sport weight yarn and I love it:)

Thank for the great info



Can't wait to have a go at this. Thank you for sharing!


So happy I saw your Facebook post earlier today, I'm happily hooking these cute little snowflakes near the fireplace and oh dear they are addictive! I'm going for a big garland :-) I can't believe this pattern escaped my attention, it's brilliant! :-) xxxx


oh lovely, I like the little ones. Thank you

Hi Lucy,
I have been following your blog for some time now (planning to start on my own hexagon blanket nest week).

I work for Age Cymru (that means Age Wales) in Cardiff - we have a Keep Warm This Winter campaign every year to raise money to raise awareness of the issues that older people face during the winter. This year, staff and volunteers were asked to make Christmas tree decorations out of wool to publicise the campaign. I contributed some snowflakes and stars from your patterns and wow, what a reaction!

I am pleased to tell you that I have been asked to send the links to your patterns to one of our corporate supporters because some of their staff want to learn how to make the decorations. It looks as if I will be going over there to give them some crochet lessons.

I would like to be able to send you a picture of the decorated tree sometime in December, as you were the inspiration for so many of the decorations. Please can you let me know if this is possible.



Thank you so much for the visual tutorial! Our church craft group has so enjoyed making these. The instructions are clear and the pictures help so much.


Thanks for the patter! I used it last year for christmas cards. Today I made a Dutch translation and posted it on my blog. I hope that's ok.


Thank you for posting this snowflake, it is so delicate!, ya lo hice!

Kelly Walmsley

I block snowflakes by saturating in a solution of 1/2 water, 1/2 white glue, squeezing out the excess gently and pinning inside the outside loops to corrugated cardboard covered with a towel.
