Hi Lucy!

I've been following this pattern for a few years now, and I still think these are the cutest snowflakes out there. Thank you for sharing it with us! I make these every year in different colors for my family, and they love them!

Thanks again!
Kristen <3


Thank you so much. I love this snowflake pattern. As a beginner I find your instructions so easy to follow. Going to recommend you to other beginners! Blocking tips were good too!

I've been making headwraps and decorating them with crocheted flowers and hearts. I came across this tutorial and it's just the ticket. Will try it today as I have several requests for the wraps. Thank you so much for being here in the nick of time!

Really easy to make and beautiful when done. Thank You for such easy to follow directions.

I tried the Coats and Clark one last night, and didn't get very far, this looks much easier and I'll be trying it later. Thank you!


Thery're so cute these snowflakes I have already made 12 to put on christmas presents!


So cute! I have some white holiday yarn with silver specks that's been hanging around for a couple years now I know what to do with it! Thanks for sharing.


Lovely. Nice and easy to follow will make beautiful Christmas decorations :)

Gorham Stirling Silver makes an annual silver snowflake. They are limited editions. We have several, and yours look just like them. They are beautiful. Thank you. Now I can have the silver ones, and make them as well and hang them on our trees. :)

I only learnt how to crochet in January this year & never imagined I'd be crocheting snowflakes by the end of it! This is an easy pattern even for me to do. Thank you :-)


WOW...that was easy and the results are most satisfactory! I used 100% white cotton so my flake is not fuzzy and it's very white. Keep up the good work!


Thanks Lucy for sharing, these snowflakes were lovely to make, your instructions are easy to follow particularly for a novice like me.


Has anyone made these with finer yarns? If so, which type, please?

Thank you so much. I've been looking for a pattern I can understand (I'm a beginner)for months and finally I came across yours and I got the hang of it straight away and happily produced some lovely snowflakes.

Dearest Lucy, what great karma you must have. Sharing another wonderful pattern with us. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Many wonderful blessings to you and yours. Thank you for your generosity and kindness. You should be named Great Britain's ambassador of goodwill to the world. You have my vote dear friend. Warmest wishes, Annette McKitrick



merci pour ces instructions
see you later

Sue Ellen Jones

Thank You so much for the detailed visual instructions. I am a visual person and have a hard time with just written instructions. I also enjoyed your bayo. I too love anything old, in fact I have many European antiques in my home that I purchased from container shipments from Great Brittiain in the seventies. I look forward to making some snowflakes...Fondly, Miss Sue Ellen


Hi again. This pattern is so easy - even for a total noob like me. To tell just how nooby I am, I can say that as I read through the tutorial on stitches first where you say "insert hook", my thought was "into what?" When I had figured out how to work the involved stitches I met the next hurdle: "To begin :: chain 5" - what is that - no chain in the description of stitches?
I had printed your instruction, just the text, to take along, so no looking at your very instructional photos for help. My first try actually turned into a snowflake believe it or not. See for yourself here: http://krydderuglen.blogspot.dk/2014/01/snefnug-yarn-along-snowflake.html
I'm so grateful for your wonderful blog, and really easy tutorials.


I'm so going to make snowflakes. It's just raining, raining, raining. We need some snow. Even if I never tried knitting after a pattern before, and never ever in English. Thanks for this!

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.
