Simple Yarn Snowflake

Leave a comment

I came up with this snowflake years ago, and just never got around to sharing it properly. This is a really simple snowflake, done in any yarn you want. If you do it at a tight enough gauge you probably won’t even need to block it unless you just really want to, and the same goes for stiffening it.

Yarn and hook I used
Red Heart Super Saver
F hook

– Chain 4 and join into a ring
– ch 1, (sc in ring, ch 7, slst in 4th ch from hook, [ch 3, slst in same ch as before] twice, slst 3) 6 times, slst in 1st sc
– FO

I personally like to leave the starting and ending tails long, and just tie them together to make a loop to hang the flake with. However, if you like, you can weave in the ends, block/stiffen if you so desire, and add your own hanger.

Really simple wreath pattern.  You’re going to want to use a hook that makes a firm structure.  I like using two strands together and a J hook.

Yarn, any kind you want
Hook appropriate to yarn

1) Chain 14, join with a slip stitch to first chain
2) Chain 1, 22 sc into ring. Join with a slst to first sc.
3) Ch 1, (sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) around. Join with a slst to first sc.
FO, add a loop to the top, and decorate as desired.

(Old Notes:

Note: I like to make this wreath with two strands of WW yarn an a J hook. When using two strands of yarn, it’s easiest to leave a long tail when you fo and tie the two strands together to form the loop)
