This is one of my all-time favorite crochet snowflake motifs — because it’s easy to crochet, it’s pretty, and it’s useful. If you make it using Cascade 220 yarn as pictured, the scale is just right for using as an applique on winter hats, scarves and sweaters. You could also make smaller versions using crochet thread or finer weight yarns. No matter what size you make it, you could attach a wire ornament hanger and use it as a Christmas tree ornament.

You don’t actually have to be a beginner at crochet to appreciate a snowflake pattern that works up this easily. The crochet work here is meditative and soothing — something that even advanced crocheters like to experience at times. Part of what gives this piece its panache is the addition of three-dimensional metal bottle caps. The resulting trivet makes a fantastic holiday gift or winter decoration.

I’m not sure if Sandra Eng actually intended any of her hexagon motifs from Crochet Kaleidoscope to specifically be used as snowflake designs for making Christmas ornaments — but when I saw them, that’s the vision I had for them. I made a couple of these, and I’m planning to make more of them to give as Christmas gifts to neighbors and acquaintances this year. Here you can see how mine turned out:

They’re pretty, don’t you think?


Crochet Kaleidoscope is a book I highly recommend. So far, it’s my most-used crochet pattern book of 2018 — and there are many more patterns in the book I plan to make from it. Between the motif patterns in the book, the finished project ideas and patterns, and all the helpful color information the book includes, I think you’ll find it endlessly useful as well.

There you have it: Our list of dazzling snowflake patterns. We hope you found some fantastic snowflake designs to add to your pattern stash.
