Hello....... Day five of the advent calender and I'm ready for a bit of snow.
For these little snowflakes and some of the other advent makes, I've treated myself to some lovely cottons, now fine cottons are not something I have really worked with before but, wow I loved them.
These pretty snowflakes are so easy to make and
are all done and dusted in just three rounds.
So a perfect quick make for this time of year,
Aren't they pretty, I think I'm going to make some more to decorate my Christmas cards, so they can be detached and hung on the tree, a card and gift rolled into one.
They do need a little blocking though.
I loved this little pattern so much that I soon had a little flurry on my hands which was perfect as I was able to send some off to the Home-Start Snowflake appeal.
Experimenting with different cottons, lace weight yarns and hooks size really changed how the snowflakes turned out just perfect, as no two snowflakes are ever the same.
As always the link to the you tube tutorial is here, why not pop over and check it out.
Have a lovely weekend.
