Super Simple Crocheted Snowflake

This snowflake is very easy and can be worked up in just a few minutes. It is shaped somewhat like a 6 sided star.

I used Lustersheen and a size C hook. (I couldn’t find any white size 3 thread, which is what I wanted to try this with.)

Stitches used:

Ch (chain)

Dc (double crochet)

Sc (single crochet)

Ss (slip stitch)


Chain 4, join with ss to form a ring.

Round 1:

Ch5, (counts as DC and ch 2) ** 2 dc into ring, ch 2**, repeat from ** to ** 4 more times, Dc into ring, join to 3rd ch of beginning chain. You should have 6 chain 2 spaces.

Round 2:

Ch 3 (counts as first Dc), dc into next dc, ** ch 2, Dc into next ch 2 space, ch 2, DC in each of the next 2 DC**, repeat from ** to ** 4 more times, ch 2, join to top of beginning ch 3. (you should have 12 ch 2 spaces)

Round 3:

Ch 1, sc in same stitch, sc into next DC, ** sc into next ch 2 space, ch 5, sc into next ch 2 space, sc into next 2 dc** repeat from ** to ** 4 more times, sc into next ch 2 space, ch 5, sc into last ch 2 space, join with ss into top of beginning sc (you should have 6 ch 5 spaces)

Round 4:

**Ss to ch 5 space,

Into the chain 5 space work the following stitches:

Sc, ch 2, sc, ch 3, sc, ch 4, sc, ch3, sc ch2, sc**

Repeat around. Join to beginning ss and fasen off.

Shape and block as desired.

  1. hi, could you tell me what size hook you used to make this? Thanks! :)

  2. I used a size C, which is 2.75 mm.

  3. Hi! I crocheted this snowflake and it turned out so cute! I included it in a snowflake round up with a link back to you. Here it is:

    Merry Christmas!

  4. I love this snowflake. But I have to admit that when I crocheted the first one, I accidentally skipped round 2. It came out so cute that I'm keeping that one too. Every year I send my friends a snowflake in their Christmas cards. This year they will get two! Thank you so much for the great pattern!
