I tried to crochet snowflake no. 1, but, your instructions were not clear. I have made several snowflakes and wanted to do this one because it is so pretty but I am totally stumped on it.

Vera on December 20, 2012:

Faythe, do you have the explanations for the first snowflakes ... the ones on a pink background?

Jennifer Kessner from Pennsylvania on December 20, 2012:

Love these! =) Bookmarking them so I can try them out tonight as I finish up some Christmas presents.

Faythe Payne (author) from USA on December 19, 2012:

RTalloni..The pattern should work well using two threads together..you will have to use a larger crochet hook to accomadate ..they will be just as beautiful. I want to try to sprinkle a little glitter when I starch the next batch..I'm hoping the glitter will stick to the wet starch.

Faythe Payne (author) from USA on December 19, 2012:

Thank You Emma Ros..they look really pretty on the Christmas tree..unfortunately..I could not get a good picture....

RTalloni on December 19, 2012:

These are beautiful! I want to make some using both the white thread and silver thread together and I hope this pattern will work--thanks!

Emma Ros from USA on December 19, 2012:
