It’s September. Is it snowing yet? No? Well who cares if it’s too early for a blizzard; I love crocheting snowflakes.
Here at KnittingandCrochet.net, snowflakes are one of our favorite design themes. There’s something irresistible about them; every time I see one, it seems to me that their symmetry and their intricacy just beg to be captured in crochet. I adore beaded crochet snowflakes, filet crochet snowflakes, and just about every other type of snowflake you could dream of.
Where to Find Snowflake Patterns and Other Fancy Crochet Hexagon Motifs
There are bunches of places you can go to grab gorgeous snowflake patterns. One of my favorite resources for hexagon-shaped crochet motif patterns that you can use for making snowflakes is a book called Crochet Kaleidoscope by Sandra Eng, published by Interweave. This book includes a spectacular variety of different motif patterns, plus finished projects like blankets, a table runner and others. So if you don’t want to spend all your crafting time making snowflakes, you’ll be able to use this book for crocheting some snowflakes as well as some other sorts of projects, too.
If you’d prefer to have a pattern book that’s completely dedicated to crocheted snowflake patterns, check out Crochet Snowflakes Step-By-Step by Caitlin Sainio. This book is published by St. Martin’s Griffin. If you’re a beginner to crochet, this is exactly the book you want — because it has some beginner-friendly projects, plus each snowflake is demonstrated using step-by-step color photo tutorials. The book also includes international symbol crochet charts, which are easy and intuitive to understand.
