Here are the next four snowflake patterns, my friends. Top left is the June snowflake, top right is the July snowflake, bottom left is the August snowflake, bottom right is the September snowflake. All four snowflakes were made using a size 7 steel crochet hook and size 10 crochet thread. All four snowflakes are about 3" in diameter.

 

Abbreviations:

 

ch = chain

sl st = slip stitch

sp = sace

sc = single crochet

hdc = half double crochet

dc = double crochet

tc = triple crochet

dtc = double triple crochet

ttc = triple triple crochet

3ttccl = 3 triple triple crochet cluster

 

Special Stitches:

 

3 Triple Triple Crochet Cluster: Work 3 triple triple crochet stitches retaining last loop of each stitch on the hook. Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on the hook.

Hi, I'm new to this web site. So far since Dec. I have made 69 snow flakes. I am absolutely bonkers for snow flakes. My family thinks I have flipped out, gone off the deep end, etc. I haven't made an original one yet. I realy want to but lack the confidence I guess. Darlene
