snowflake 2014: free crochet pattern collection

Crocheted holiday. Stitch after stitch sliding off a hook in a calming rhythm of focus. There is something utterly satisfying about decorating one’s home with items that were handmade made with love and with a particular purpose in mind. My favorite thing to crochet this time of year? Snowflakes. And this season, I bring you not one but three separate free patterns as part of my Snowflake 2014 collection.

Pour yourself a warm cup of tea, put on some Christmas music, and grab your favorite hook and yarn. These unique one-round crochet snowflakes are an ideal budget-friendly Christmas decor project for those who don’t have much time as they work up in mere minutes, and use the tiniest amount of yarn.
