W.i.P Wednesday – Snowflakes

crochet snowflakes, Rainbow Junkie pattern

All these snowflakes were made with one ball of Drops Safran combed cotton and a 3mm hook. The little bit of unworked cotton was left over from the one ball.

They still need blocking and stiffening, the ends need sewing in and I will be adding some Swarovski crystals, but I am really pleased with them right now.

The pattern, for all but the larger snowflake top left, is a pattern by Jane at Rainbow Junkie. Her patterns are always a delight. They are clear and easy to follow and you just know that meticulous testing has been carried out. This pattern is a free one, and there are other snowflakes to go with this one.

Jane has other patterns and tutorials for free and some patterns for sale on Ravelry.

What I especially liked about this snowflake pattern is that it is EASY.

Sometimes I love the intricate and difficult, but knowing I wanted to make a pile of snowflakes and there is a certain deadline to meet – easy is what I was after. I soon learnt the pattern and was able to rattle them out fairly quickly.

I’m wondering, if joined together, whether they would make a cute baby shawl or blanket – especially for a Christmas baby.

The pattern for the snowflake, top left, is by Donna Wolfe, a free one I found on Ravelry

This is not so easy but I will be making fewer of these. I wanted a bigger one to go with Jane’s snowflakes. The pattern does come with a video tutorial – Donna goes way too fast for me, but of course one can pause and rewind. It works and the design suits what I have in mind……… more to show you next week I hope.

    Beautiful now, and the crystal will be the shining touch. Put together, they would make a lovely little blanket or shawl.

  10. These are lovely and I think they would look super joined together as a shawl… I could imagine a baby being christened wrapped in a shawl made of your snowflakes
