Snowflake Monday This is yet another flake inspired by a design on a snowflake fleece blanket I adore. As I was getting ready to post this pattern, I couldn't remember which flake this was. So I had to make another one. Which gave me a chance to fine-tune yet one more time, plus I also was able to try out the bamboo thread I received as a Christmas gift for the first time. So this is my first ever Bamboo Flake! I am delighted to report bamboo thread is an absolute joy to work with. After I finished pinning my revised flake, I decided I liked the original better, yet the original still needed something. You may do whatever you'd like with snowflakes you make from this pattern, but you may not sell or republish the pattern. Bamboo Snowflake Instructions Make magic ring. Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as 1 dc), 2 dc into ring, *ch 12, 3 dc into ring; repeat from * 4 more times for a total of 6 petals, ch 5, trtr (that's yo 4 times) into 1st dc (ch 5 and trtr count as final ch 12 loop).

Starflower Mandala: Row by Row Two or so weeks back I posted my STARFLOWER MANDALA PATTERN The original plan was to provide photos of each row - but there was such a high demand for the pattern (long weekend = lots of crochet time) - so I decided to go ahead and publish with just the few photos of the first four rows!Hundreds (maybe thousands?) YAY! My original STARFLOWER MANDALAS were crocheted with Stylecraft Special DK and a 3.50mm hook, giving a finished Mandala of 33 cm in diameter. The Starflower Mandala in this post was made with Raeesah Cotton Soft DK and a 4.00mm hook, giving me a finished Mandala of 45cm in diameter. Yarn weights are referred to quite differently in various regions, so I thought I would also include this rather useful RAVELRY LINK for Standard Yarn Weights.Crochet Hook Sizes are also referred to differently - if you need to know which hook to use go and have a look HEREThe photos were taken at various times over the course of a few days - so there is a bit of variation in the colouring.

Snowflake Monday To me, this flake is somewhat reminiscent of Irish crochet. Notice how the largest chain spaces seem to form hearts. You may do whatever you'd like with snowflakes you make from this pattern, but you may not sell or republish the pattern.

Sunflowers At Home: Frost I sit here with my newest little one, A, on my lap sleeping. I should be cleaning, putting away dishes, loading the washing machine or any of the many home chores that seem to multiply infintesimally in a home with six people. However, how can I stop looking down at her sleeping, peaceful face? We had our first frost of the year last night. Christmas is only 63 days away!!! I prefer the thread crochet versions and there are several patterns available for free on the web that are beautiful.

how to stiffen crochet snowflake | Vintage Crafts and More Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie! This pretty star snowflake is actually a motif for a Supper Cloth or Buffet Topper, but when I saw it in my 1940s Lily booklet for Easy to Crochet Table Cloths and Runners, all I could think of was this would make a great crochet thread ornament. See what I mean…. Of course, if you’d like to you can join several together to make a pretty doily or runner. In order to use it as an ornament you’ll need to stiffen it. Blocking is simply slightly stretching it out, pinning it down on a soft cloth and steaming it with a hot iron with a wet cloth over it. While blocking, spritz it with spray laundry starch, that will help the blocking to hold. If you’d like to use fine glitter to make your snowflake sparkle, a glue stiffener would do and if you add some beads, you’ll have to use a strong stiffener so it won’t flop from the weight of the beads. The glue is not the best for a non-glittery snowflake, since it dulls the threads sheen.
