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
