Crochet snowflakes are a classic holiday decoration, and they aren’t too challenging to make. You can make this easy snowflake with just a few basic crochet stitches (and one that may be new to you, the treble, or triple crochet). With only three rounds to crochet, the snowflake comes together quickly.
What is a snowflake pattern?
The ice crystals that make up snowflakes are symmetrical (or patterned) because they reflect the internal order of the crystal’s water molecules as they arrange themselves in predetermined spaces (known as “crystallization”) to form a six-sided snowflake.
What is DC crochet stitch?
The double crochet (abbreviated dc) is one of the most common crochet stitches and is about twice as tall as a single crochet. A double-crochet fabric is fairly solid but not stiff and is great for sweaters, shawls, afghans, placemats, or any number of other home decor items.
