3rd and final crochet snowflake pattern

Here’s the last instalment!

Keep your hands busy making these last-minute christmas gifts and maybe it’ll stop you shovelling so much food into your face that you actually lose sleep to indigestion. It hasn’t worked for me, but it’s worth a go.

All three designs are available pre-made on my easy shop, click here for the link. They’ll arrive to you in a lovely paper bag stamped in gold with the milkbottleknits biz.

Fasten off and sew in the yarn ends. To stiffen, soak for a few minutes in a solution of PVA glue and water. Cornflower and water also works very well but does make the snowflakes a bit soft and fluffy.

If you’d like to use a template to get your snowflake perfectly even and symmetrical print out a 6 pointed star, just 6 lines equally spaced will be fine, and dry each snowflake out on top of a template lining up the points exactly.
