5 Crochet Glitter Snowflakes (Instructions Included)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I love to crochet. Nana taught me when I was really little. Back then I just made crochet chains. Loooooong crocheted chains. I continued to crochet through the years making lots and lots of afghans, but got bored with those. Seriously, how many afghans do you really need? Unfortunately my pattern reading skills are fair at best, and my knowledge of crochet stitches beyond the basics are limited, so I’ve really never advanced past beginner projects.

My sister mentioned she’d love to have some crocheted snowflakes for her tree. The ones that had been passed down through the family that she’d been putting on her tree in the past were falling apart. I decided there’s no time like the present to advance my crocheting skills, and went in search of some snowflake patterns. There are a ton of free patterns out there, but good LORD! I can’t tell you how many I started, then ripped out.

After a lot of frustration, I finally landed on five that  worked for me. My end result may not look perfect, but I felt pretty accomplished when I had finished. For the most part they were really easy to do, and my sister loved them! They don’t take long, and once you’ve got the pattern down, you can whip through them pretty quickly. They’d make a great handmade Christmas gift. I’ve shared the instructions with you below.

Good luck and happy crocheting!

Finishing Snowflakes

To stiffen snowflakes, mix one part glue with one part water in a medium bowl. Stir until smooth. Submerge a snowflake in the mixture, then squeeze out excess liquid, lay the snowflake on a towel or corkboard. Shape it and pin it into place. Sprinkle with white glitter and let dry.
