Another Simple snowflake

I tried to block this one with spray starch and it didn't work out very well. the picture is lousy, but I think the general idea is there. This pattern is suitable for a beginner.

I used size 3 thread and a C hook. My flake is about 4 inches from point to point.

Stitches used:

ch chain

ss slip stitch

dc double crochet

tc triple crochet

Ch 5, join with ss to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3, dc into ring, ch 2, *2 dc into ring, ch 2*, Repeat from * to* 4 more times, join to top of first ch3. (You should have 12 dc and 6 ch 2 spaces.)

Round 2: Ss to first ch 2 space, ch 3, dc, ch2, tc, ch2, 2 dc all into first ch 2 space, in each of the other ch 2 spaces work the following: 2dc, ch2, 1 tc, ch2, 2dc. Join to top of first ch 3.

Round 3: ss to first ch 2 space, *Ch 7, ss into fourth ch from hook, ch 4, ss into next ch 2 space. Ss in next 2 DC. Ss in space between the next 2 DC and ch 3, join with ss to same space. SS in next 2 dc and into next ch 2 sp.*, repeat from * to* until you get back to the beginning.

Finish off. Stiffen and block.

Pattern is untested, except by myself. Please let me know if something is unclear, or you find a mistake.

  1. Hi, I think I found a mistake in Round 3. You need to ss to a ch2 space before you do the initial ch7.

  2. You're right, thanks very much for catching it and letting me know. I've edited the pattern.
