Whether or not it’s snowing in your neighborhood, you can revel in the beauty of snowflakes — crocheted and knitted ones, that is. We’ve posted a roundup of lovely snowflake patterns you’re sure to enjoy. There’s a fantastic mix of free snowflake patterns and snowflake patterns you can buy.
If you would enjoy having a huge collection of crochet snowflake motifs to crochet, this is the pattern book for you. The book includes international symbol crochet charts plus clear step-by-step tutorials, making it easy for you to master each design. This is a fantastic book for beginners to crochet, but it’s also a book that intermediate and advanced crochet enthusiasts would find useful. Click here for more details.
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.
These snowflake appliques are enjoyable to crochet and useful for decorating just about any surface you could think of.
Here’s one possible use for the winter snowflake applique pictured above: You can use it to decorate these useful potholders. We invite you to get the free crochet potholder pattern right here on our website.
Pictured here is a beaded crochet snowflake that you could use as a pretty Christmas ornament for adorning your tree, mantelpiece, Christmas gifts or holiday table. You crochet the snowflake in two layers. You could make either layer separately if you prefer.
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.
