crochet snowflakes

These are fun to make. Quick, easy or tricky as you want, and more useful than a doily. Most are from a 99 Snowflakes Liesure Arts booklet I found at a craft store a few years back. One of them is from the December 2002 Martha Stewart.


Thread with lots of pattern links on the Crochet community at Livejournal.

Those are nice! Years ago, my mom made a lot of those for our xmas trees. she starched 'em w/sugar water, I think, but I myself would probably use the liquid starch stuff I have laying around my house. You did a a great job on all of them. thanks for sharing.

I added a link to some patterns. There are a bunch around and about.

I starched mine with fabric stiffener I found at Michaels (to his credit, the stock boy didn't bat an eye when I asked for help finding Stiffy). You can also use watered down white glue. They actually look pretty bad before you starch and block them. The book I used has little templates to help pin them out on a cork board to dry to get the shapes all nice.
