FREE PATTERN: Mini Snowflake

Date: 21st December 2015 | Category: Free, Pattern

Mini Snowflake Pattern

It’s no secret that I love snowflakes, I like to design some every year. This tiny snowflake can be used as a hanging decoration, in a garland, in present wrapping, scattered over the table for decoration at your festive dinner or as a decoration anywhere at Christmas! It was designed for my local knitgroup’s Macmillan coffee morning – we had a sale of handcrafted items, patterns and recipes and I didn’t need any persuading to make some snowflakes and print out a few patterns to help with the fundraising. – Valerie Bracegirdle

If you like it then please consider donating to Macmillan – you can find information on how to do so here:

Valerie describes herself as an ‘accidental designer’ because she didn’t set off to become a designer, it just happened somewhere along the path of enjoying crochet and knitting.
