Crocheted Petite Snowflake
I’ve made so many snowflakes recently, I decided to try my hand at whipping up a pattern of my own. There was a lot of ugly being produced for awhile, but I finally made something I like! This little guy measures only 1 and 7/8″ wide, so it would be perfect on a mini-Christmas tree or on a greeting card. They’re even small enough to put inside an ornament! My inspiration for attempting such a thing came from fellow Ravelry member, madamsewingstick.
I’ve tried to ensure there are no errors, but since this is my first snowflake pattern, I can’t promise perfection. If you do find an error, please let me know and I’ll gladly make the correction. PDF: Petite Snowflake.
