6" Snowflake Square

Recommended Posts

I recently created this square and am posting the pattern here by popular demand. Please let me know if I need to make any changes or clarifications. Critiques of my pattern-writing are welcome! No need to pm me, put them right here in the thread. I ain't skeerd!

 

The Sweetie the Snowflake pattern https://m.facebook.com/groups/379329545500832/383074201793033/ is used here with permission from Sally Ives. (It's a pdf)

 

Materials:

 

*Small amounts of white and light blue worsted weight acrylic yarns

*Size I crochet hook

*tapestry needle (to weave in ends)

 

Finished size:

 

Mine came out 6 1/8", so essentially 6"

 

Abbreviations:

 

ch=chain

sc=single crochet

dc=double crochet

tc=treble crochet

sp=space

sk=skip

sl st=slip stitch

 

Pattern:

 

With white and I hook, crochet Sweetie the Snowflake using the pattern in the link above.

 

With light blue and I hook, right side facing,

 

Rnd 1: Working in back loops, attach with a *sc in the 2nd ch of ch-4 sp, sc in next ch, dc in 1st ch of ch-2 sp, sk next ch and sc, 2 tc in next sc, dc in 2nd ch of ch-2 sp, sc in 2nd and 3rd ch of ch-4 sp, dc in 1st ch of ch-2 sp, sk next ch and sc, (tc, ch 3, tc) in next sc, dc 2nd ch of ch-2 sp** repeat between * and ** 3 times, join with sl st to first sc

 

Rnd 2: ch 2 (don't turn), dc in same stitch and every stitch around except (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in each ch-3 sp, join with sl st to first dc (not the ch 2)

 

Rnd 3: ch 1 (don't turn), sc in same stitch and every stitch around except 5 sc in each ch-3 sp, join with sl st to first sc (not the ch 1)

 

Finish off and weave in ends

This is a very pretty square, thanks for sharing. Already the winter feeling is getting here especially with Christmas - then the really big hard cold winter sets in . The squares are really nice.

Thank you so much for both Sweetie the Snowflake and Sweetie the Snowflake Becomes A Square patterns! I especially love the Snowflake pattern because it uses worsted weight yarn instead of thread that so many snowflake patterns are made of. I don't use thread anymore -- too painful. So, I was pleased with one I could use!

 

Thanks again for two great patterns I am sure to use!

One question. What is the ideal use for this?

I made mine for the Friendship-ghan Crochet-Along. You can use this square for anything you would make with 6" squares! You can make them different colors too.

 

*Ponchos

*Scarves

*Blankets

*Pillows (crochet 8 squares together, 4 in front and 4 in back)

*Placemats

*Tree skirt?

*Totes

*Coasters

 

Can anyone think of some other ideas?

What is the best way to crochet the squares together and keep them flat?

I will have to learn how to do whip stitch. Its first time I ever see that. The double potholders is done with single crochet all around to hold together.

I wanted to know if anyone out there has the snowflake pattern available. I have tried to get to the pattern and the link just brings up a blank page that never loads. The same thing happens trying it from other sites that have it listed. Thanks for any help you can give me with this.

The site is evidently closed but, you can still get the pattern in post #1 in this thread.
