These are really cute. I lost all my ornaments last year during a move so I'm having to build up my supply again. Gonna be making some of these.

I just wish I could read a pattern! I'm really a visual reader! Oh well. : (

Reading a pattern is easy. You just have to know what the abbreviations stand for. Hdc = half double crochet. Sl st = slip stitch. Ch = chain so ch1 would mean chain 1. Does this help at all?

How do you mod podge them? Curious about whether to dip them or brush it on? Thanks for the pattern! We got a smaller tree after moving to a much smaller house so I can't use all my ornaments I've accumulated over the years!

Ashley, I brush mine on and I water down the modge podge just a little and I use matte but just recently tried sparkle modge podge on some white snowflakes and I love how they look : )

love these! I just learned to crochet so this is literally my first project but it's super easy and I just made a bunch for the christmas tree! Thanks for posting.

Abby said...

Using this as a bow on my daughter's beanie I just crocheted! :) just something different from the Christmas usages.

Round 1:
Ch 4 (this counts as as hdc, ch 2) Hdc, Ch2 (5 times) into the circle or magic circle

This should read

ch 4 (counts as hdc, ch 2), hdc, ch 2 (4 times), ch 2, sl st to ch 2 of ch 4

There is no closure to the round. :) It's okay! Everyone has to start somewhere.

These are perfect. I want to make kitchen curtain with snowflakes for winter. Thank you for the pattern!

I'm putting together a roundup of crochet snowflake patterns to share on my blog and would love to include this one. Your work is beautiful! I typically include a photo from the original post along with a link back to the post, but I do not publish the pattern or any of your original content on my site.

You can see an example of a roundup here: http://www.leavesandstitches.com/weekend-pinspiration-thanksgiving-desserts/

Would it be okay to include your pattern in the roundup?

Thank you so much!

Thanks for the free pattern, I featured and linked it on my blog as part of a gift that I made! I will be making many more as I have an idea floating around in my head!

I have seen you can use sugar water to stiffen them up. What amounts, and how long do you keep them in it?

May I link this tutorial on my YouTube video?

Is there a reason you use Modge Podge instead of just starching them?
