|Easy Snowflake Christmas Decorations|
They are simple to vary .....
Make them in one colour, or with a contrast colour edging
or make them two tone
with the centre and edging in the same colour
To make the Snowflake Motif ~
These instructions use UK terminology
Use a medium weight yarn. I made these with DK yarn and a 4mm hook.
Chain 3 stitches and join with a slip stitch into a circle.
Chain 1, then make 5 double crochet stitches into the circle. Join with a slip stitch. (6sts)
Chain 5, then make 3 trebles and chain 2 into next 5 stitches, make 2 trebles in last stitch and join to first 5 chain with a slip stitch.
Chain 2, then (make 2 trebles, chain 3, make 3 trebles) into the first chain space, then (make 3 trebles, chain 3, make 3 trebles) into each chain space all around. Join with a slip stitch.
To make an edging ( if desired) ~ in the same or a contrasting colour
Double crochet all around.
To make a hanging cord ( if desired) ~ chain 30. Attach to the motif.
Have fun .....
