Crochet snowflakes are perfect for many holiday projects. Crochet yourself a snowflake garland to string over the mantle; embellish your holiday hats with a snowflake; attach them to a place mat or table runner; use them as Christmas tree ornaments or gift toppers; really, there are so many uses for them! Did I mention they only take about 20 minutes to make? You can whip up a dozen in no time.
Work this pattern in any weight yarn to suit your needs. Lightweight yarn yields a size perfect for a garland and bulky weight becomes the perfect holiday table centerpiece.
