CROCHET A SNOW STORM OF SNOWFLAKES
 article and image by Carole Terwilliger Meyers

Here is another very easy crochet pattern.  I consider this one seasonal and make them fall through winter.  As with my other little crochet projects, I indulge during down time when visiting my grandchildren and leave the finished snowflakes behind for them to find as they will and hopefully trigger memories of Grandma.  I did discover that the kitties really enjoy these snowflakes, too.

materials:
●G crochet hook
●worsted weight/4-ply yarn, or any other yarn adjusted to the proper size hook

directions:
Chain 5.
Join into first chain with a slip stitch to form a circle.
Round 1:
Chain 4 (this counts as a half double crochet + chain 2).
Make 5 half double crochets with a chain 2 into the circle.
Round 2:
Working into the 6 spaces you just created, begin with a slip stitch into the first space to the left of your hook.
Make the first snowflake cluster:
Chain 3 + slip stitch into same space.
Chain 5 + slip stitch into the same space.
Chain 3 + slip stitch into the same space.
Make 5 more clusters:
Chain 1 + slip stitch into the next space.
Chain 3 + slip stitch into same space.
Chain 5 + slip stitch into the same space.
Chain 3 + slip stitch into the same space.
End:
Chain 1, slip stitch into the very first slip stitch of this round.  To end, either bind off, or chain 10 and then slip stitch again to make a loop for hanging.
