Me, my blog and a snowflake pattern

Hi there, welcome to my blog and my very first post. I've been thinking about this for a while....a place to share my crochet and some of my ideas and inspirations. You can normally find me on Instagram as I tend to prefer pictures to words, but I've persuaded myself to give blogging a go. I started sharing my makes on Instagram about three years ago and some of you seemed to like them, so I thought maybe I ain't so bad at this crochet thing. I wrote a few patterns and even had a few of my designs published. Here on my blog I hope to inspire a few more of you to crochet. I love it and I hope you will too!

Now for that snowflake pattern.....

Simple Snowflake

For the large snowflake I used t-shirt yarn and a 15mm hook, but you can use any yarn and hook to suit.

Abbreviations: (UK terms)
ch - chain
dc - double crochet
st - stitch
sl st - slip stitch

Ch 2 to start or magic loop.

Round 1: 6 dc in second ch from hook or magic loop, join with a sl st to first dc.

Round 2: Ch 1, * dc in first st, ch 4, sl st in second ch from hook, (ch 2, sl st in second ch from hook) twice, sl st in each of remaining 2 ch, dc in same st as first dc, repeat from * till six points made, join with a sl st to first dc. 

Fasten off and weave in ends.

I hope you enjoy this simple snowflake pattern. The snowflakes can be used in various ways; hang them in the window, on the Christmas tree or use them to decorate cards or presents. Feel free to tag me on Instagram with any of your makes.
