Snowflake No. 2 ~ My Newest Tutorial ..

Hello my dear friends,

I just can't seem to help it but I love crocheting little snowflakes and since I had so much fun creating my first pattern of course no. 2 would have to follow.

This one is a little bit more work than the first one but it is worth it - it is pretty and neat.

And this is what it looks like ...

... my little snowflake no. 2 which I have given the name ...

... 'Let there be snow'!

Isn't it so lovely?!

As always when I do my crochet tutorials,  I have made a chart you can follow or the written instructions if you prefer them. You would really think that my drawings of the pattern would get better with time, but no, not with me but I hope you will be able to read it right.

And this is how you create one of my newest snowflakes ...

Make a magic ring and in it crochet the following:

Round 1 ...

...crochet 3 chain stitches, and 11 double crochet and finished this round with a slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

Round 2 ...

... 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet, 3 chain stitches, *2 double crochet, 3 chain stitches* repeat until you have 6 'loops'. Finish the round with a slip stitch into the chain stitch of the beginning of the round.

Round 3 ...

... start the round with 1 chain stitch as the first stitch, 1 single crochet in the next double crochet, then into the loop - *1 half double crochet, 1 double crochet, 1 treble crochet, 4 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet, 1 double crochet, 1 half double crochet, a single crochet in the next two double crochet from the previous round*. Finish the round with a slip stitch into the chain stitch from the beginning of the round.

Round 4 ...

... start the round with a chain stitch and crochet a single crochet into every previous stitch except when it comes to the loop. Crochet the following into each loop ~ 2 single crochet, 4 chain stitches, 2 single crochet. Finish the round with a slip stitch into the chain stitch of the beginning of the round.

And there you are ... you have just created your first snowflake!

I hope you have enjoyed my latest little tutorial that I have created for you. I always work very hard to give you very good instructions. If you ever find a mistake or my tutorial doesn't make sense,  please drop me a line and let me know.

I have almost completed my next tutorial for my third snowflake and I will be sharing it soon. So do visit me again some time, here at Todolwen and see what I have been up too.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
