Crochet Snowflake

 

Crochet Snowflakes must be blocked and starched to achieve the desired effect.

To block your snowflake, trace the Blocking Pattern onto tracing paper.

Blocking Pattern – click HERE to download.

Place it on a pinning board and tape it. For a pinning board you can use cork board, a sheet of Styrofoam, or a piece of pressed cardboard. Then cover the blocking pattern with plastic wrap, so that it will be waterproof. Soak the snowflake with commercial starch or fabric stiffener. Gently squeeze out any excess liquid. Place the snowflake on the pinning board over the blocking pattern. Using rustproof pins, pin the crochet snowflake to shape. Allow to dry completely before removing it.

I hope you enjoy my crochet Snowflake and have very joyful holidays!
