How to Crochet the Snowflake Stitch

How is December here? This year has FLOWN by! I am extremely excited to show you the 4 new stitch patterns I’ve created for December…they’re so Christmasy and fun! Join me today in learning how to crochet the Snowflake Stitch 🙂

It’s funny…before I designed this stitch, I really wanted to come up with a stitch that looked like Snowflakes. However, I didn’t quite know how I would make that work, so I thought it would end up being a simpler stitch.

I came up with something simpler, but then when I went to re-work it, I forgot what I had done. Frustrated, I started over, randomly crocheting…and this stitch emerged! It was pretty awesome that I ended up with snowflakes in the end. 🙂

All that to say, this stitch uses different sized chain spaces alternating to create a neat snowflake effect!
