Work these little ones up at ornaments or string them together to make a festive garland. Either way you can’t go wrong. Grab your favourite holiday yarn and let’s get going!

Pattern Notes:

This Snowflake is worked in 4 rounds, each building on the last round. We will use beginner stitches (sc & dc) but the placement and spaces are what make this look a lot more complicated than it actually is. We have taken photos at every step to help you along! Depending on the yarn you’ve chosen, you may need to block your work to get crisp snowflake edges. We have tips on this also!


Each Snowflake is approx. 4.5in tall.
