That said, I found myself crocheting these snowflakes for the holiday tree that I adorn with mini hand-knit sweaters, stockings and mittens. I had an old Leisure Arts Leaftlet, #255, which featured crocheted snowflakes and angels. I think this leaflet is out of print (maybe available on ebay) but there are free snowflake patterns everywhere…especially here. I used size 10 crochet cotton and a size 4/2.0mm crochet hook.
If you are so inclined to give in to “Christmas in July”, these snowflakes are a small, quick and easy fix. Although they are delicate and pretty, I won’t be adding to this collection until there is a chill in the air and the holiday music channels are in full blast on Sirius XM.
For now, it’s sum-sum-summertime!!
