Lovely snowflakes Lucy! But a special thank you for the spray starch tip! I'm going to order some NOW!!! :)


I've just come across your site this morning and I cannot describe how happy I am to have found it...You are really amazing!
You brought color and warmth to my dim working morning!
You gave me the push to learn new crochet stitches and start my own colorful world :)
Thank youuuuuuuuuuuu...


Thank you for the beautiful snow flake post :-). I keep telling my husband I am manifesting snow here in Southern California where we live...he thinks I'm a bit loopy, but this is some very pretty Christmas time snow if you ask me!


Hooray for hooky snowflakes! Thank you for sharing your wonderful crochet world with us!


Hi Lucy,

First time I am seeing you making something without colours. For a moment I hoped that snowflakes also came in gorgeous colours... lol :-)

Lucy, I love your white snowflakes. I already made a garland from the Coats and Clark pattern. I finally learned how to use Flickr and I uploaded a very bad photo of my snowflake garland to Attic24 inspired.


Beautiful snowflakes, Lucy! Sigh. Wish I crocheted!


Hi Lucy,

Love the snowflakes.. I will have to give them a try.

Actually i am posting because I found a site that I thought you might want to have a look at, if you get time. http://www.livingcreatively.com.au/current_issue/issue_10/creative_uncovered/crochet_psycho

It's not like anything you've done (yet) but thought you might like the colours. Its amazing what some inspiration will do for some people.

Keep up the great work. I love checking in to your blog every day!!

take care


Oh Lucy, every time I come to visit you in the Attic, I leave wishing I, too, knew how to crochet. My brain won't wrap around it though, so I'll stick to oohing and aahing over your beautiful creations. Those snowflakes are just gorgeous and will look lovely in your pretty-coloured house!


Ah Ha! Now I can add some snowflakes with some little birdies for my christmas tree! These are truly lovely - thank you for demystifying the pattern brain fog for us;-)

I can just imagine how addictive these will be. And glitter!! Oh, I have so many little tubs of glitter amd transluscent paints - this will be fun:-)


I have made two already - wonderful pattern and tutorial. Thanks Lucy!

Dear Lucy will be having a go at the wonderful snowflakes. Individual ones or a
length of them would look good on a Christmas parcel too. Thank you for your instructions.
Love Sarah west mids. Bet you get real snow before we do!


Hey Lucy, thank you for such another great pattern! you are such an inspiration!


Very pretty. Looking forward to seeing pics of them hanging when you're finished.

there's another stiffening product available - called Stiffy ( I kid you not). It's probably just pre-diluted pva glue, but it's really easy to use, you just brush it on. I've never tried, but I'm guessing the glitter idea would also work with Stiffy.

Dear Lucy!!! Thankx so much. I am a quilter, not a crocheter, but as your tutorials are so well-written, I always give them a try. My first flake is drying up as we speak, it only took me 15 minutes to make?? So so great! Thanks a lot and I will be following you on your blog.

Oh dear. I now feel compelled to try these out and make a million snowflakes. XD

I'm thrilled - I just made my first snowflake using your tutorial in a matter of minutes! Your tutorial and photos are great! Oh, my goodness, how sweet and wonderful of you to share this information. I know it must take time to prepare your tutorials but please know that we crocheters really, really appreciate it.

Thanks for sharing. I made a snowflake garland last year following a similar pattern. You can also turn that 5-point granny star you recently linked to into a snowflake by making your foundation chain just one longer and working one more "point" into the round. I plan to make myself a snowflake scarf with that pattern! Happy hooking!

Kate Bruning

White is pretty special to work with every now again. I'm working busily on pompom garlands and I have to admit that I am doing one that is entirely white. It's kind of like a holiday. I showed my 6 year old (Archie) your snowflakes and he is very excited because he is mad on making paper snow flakes so we figure we might be able to make a Christmas mobile together. So glad you like the little baby legs - the rest of her is edible too!!


Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. I've been trying on and off for weeks to crochet snowflakes and to be honest they look more like dollops of rice pudding or squashed meringues than snowflakes. I'll try again now!


I am so happy -- I had really wanted to crochet snowflakes this year, but was overwhelmed, thinking they must be oh so tediously made from thread...I was just not up to it...so, I had given up the idea...until you shared yours.
Thank you for the idea to do them in yarn! I sat with some white cotton I had on hand to make just one to try the pattern and...before I knew it, had made three, lickety-split, in different sizes! :D
Thanks a million for the inspiration.
(Oh...I can't remember if I've already told you, but my daughter is expecting our first grandchild about the same time as your new one is to arrive.)

Wow! I am so super excited to get home and start making snowflakes for my Christmas tree. Thank you so much for realizing that we need YOUR patterns. They are the most easiest patterns to follow. You make crocheting so easy. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't have gotten past the first project. There are really no words to explain how utterly helpful you have been in this area. I have tried other patterns, but I can't get them. I tell my husband, I will have to wait for Lucy to try it and create a pattern. You should create a book using all the patterns on your site and have it published....it would sell like hotcakes and be so very helpful to people. Hugs & Kisses to you Lucy!!!!!


These are so lovely! I'm going to have to give them a go very soon! I have some cotton yarn - probably intended for making washcloths, but it will do for snowflakes too!


Thanks Lucy, you are awesome to have simplified this pattern...I have been wanting to make snowflakes for the LONGEST time!!!


Love the snowflakes! Wonder if Mr Shopping (Ocado!) can bring me some spray starch? I have some quite curly granny stars awaiting attention...

Keep up the good work.
Katie x
