We followed a great how-to video by Chandi @ExpressionFiberArts (scroll to video below). The snowflakes work up quickly and the video is easy to follow. You can use whatever yarn/cotton you like. I used Caron Simply Soft Party, Color Snow Sparkle and crochet hook size H. With this yarn, the finished snowflakes measure 4.5-inches.
Crochet Snowflake decorating ideas
- Fill the branches of your Christmas Tree
- Attach to your window panes for a wintry look all the way through January and beyond.
- Package in groups of six or twelve and give as gifts to friends, teachers or as a small hostess gift.
- Add to wrapped presents instead of a bow.
- Use to create a tablescape by scattering on the table or placing at individual place-settings.

Thank you for this video! It was straightforward and easy to follow. It takes me less than 30 min to make one and I have made many snowflakes- they are SO PRETTY! I’ve been using sparkly while yarn and they look beautiful on my tree. I am making more for other family members- SO FUN!!! <3

Thank you so much for this. I haven’t crocheted in years, and was looking for some gift ideas that I could make with stuff I already had. This is perfect and I’m very happy with my first attempt and it has brought some pre christmas joy into my afternoon. Thank you for sharing X
Thank you so much for letting us know we brightened your day. Hope you have a joyous Christmas season.

Thanks so much for the snowflake video! Even I, as a crochet beginner, could follow it! The only question is, what did you say to mix with the water to stiffen the snowflake when blocking?
In the video, Chandi from Expression Fiber Arts mentions that she mixes equal parts white glue with water.
I haven’t tried it because I don’t mind the snowflakes being soft but if you want them to be stiff and keep their shape here are guidelines I found in a search:
Add the water and glue to a container large enough for a snowflake. Stir until combined.
Dip the snowflake into the mixture making sure it is completely covered.
Squeeze out the extra glue mixture.
Lay the snowflake onto a flat surface covered with plastic wrap or waxed paper so the snowflakes won’t stick. Using your fingers on a toothpick, shape the snowflake.
Allow to dry completely.
Hope this is helpful to you!
Love these so easy and so sweet! I could make enough for gift tags for everyone!

Video Instructions were easy peasy to follow… will be making dozens of these for gift tag adornment (gift ornament is double bonus… ha ha)… also garland for small tabletop tree. Thanks so much.
Please provide WRITTEN instructions of crochet snowflake. Thank you
I am sorry I do not have the printed pattern on my site. Because it is not my own pattern I am not able to post one. If you listen to the video (it isn’t very long) you can write out the directions and then have it for your use.
Thanks for the tutorial. I make about 70 snow flakes a year to give to my voulnteers for a gift making workshop.
Jackie Geyr says
Loved your tutorial. Remembered how much I used to love to crochet. Will dawn next years tree with new snowflakes instead of the one the grandkids made. But will still include theirs too. Plan to subscribe now. Have a wonderful spring, my dear. Jackie P. S. Love your nail polish color!

Hi Lorraine, thank you for making this video! You are very generous to have made it to share with everyone! I am planning to make some for gifts for next year. It’s always good to think ahead! Happy New Year to you and yours!
So happy to hear you like the crochet snowflakes! The video is not mine. It was made by Chandi from Expression Fiber Arts and I just shared it because it is a great one. The snowflakes do make sweet gifts and decorations.
Thank you for your comment and wishes for the new year! All the best to you and yours as well 🙂
Darlene Richard says
thank you, thank you and thank you again for your snowflake pattern…I always wanted to make them but they looked so complicated…but you made it so easy…..love it….
Hi Lorraine, your little crochet stars are so simple and cute! I’m making them to attach to hostess gifts for some parties we are attending this season. Other snowflake patterns I’ve tried recently have often been so super hard and frustrating. These are nice and quick and easy, puts the fun back into it. Thanks a bunch for sharing!!
Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comment! These are really easy to make and very pretty too. Happy to hear you are making them this season.
thank so much, no chance of snow flakes in Southern Australia , so will make a few of these for my tree , merry Xmas to you and your family
So cute yet elegant too.
Ty so much For posting this video Lorraine, I love how easy you seem to make it to follow. I would love to see more video tutorials from you, it’s kind of hard for someone like myself who is just learning to read patterns, again ty so much and have a blessed day
clare king says

I am sorry I do not have the printed pattern on my site. Because it is not my own pattern I am not able to post one. If you listen to the video (it isn’t very long) you can write out the directions and then have it for your pattern book.
Thank you for your visit and comment. Hope you will visit again
OOO, I love your beautiful snowflakes…when I learn to crochet other than a long chain, I would love to make some….
The snowflakes are beautiful…thank you for sharing. Makes me want get out my crochet hooks and start making some snowflakes.
Those are beautiful. I treasure the crocheted snowflakes my mother made for me. I wish I had paid more attention and learned from her.
ONE of these years I AM going to learn how to crochet!!!! Those are beautiful!!!! Happy Christmas week- xo Diana
These are so lovely on the tree!
Barbara F. says
Love these. So sweet!
Those are pretty. I crocheted snowflakes years ago with crochet cotton. I have a hard time working with that any more though. The stitches are too small. This would be perfect since you use the bigger hook
Your snowflake turned out beautiful! Happy Christmas Week-enjoy:@)
