Lacy crochet snowflakes look beautiful hanging on a Christmas tree or decorating a gift. They remind me of a beautiful glistening snowy day. These handmade treasures will not melt away but will adorn your home for years to come. They are easy to make and would make a lovely gift for a friend or loved one.

      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.

      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.
