This year my sister gave me an old magazine called “Favorite Classics Christmas Crochet” from 1992. This set of snowflakes if from the article Snowflake Fancy. The magazine doesn’t credit the designer which is a shame because I’d love to know who designed these.
I like the whimsical decorations at the ends of the points, suggesting flowers.
Unfortunately this magazine is out of print but the snowflake in the center is available, including a workable chart, on pinterest.
I got a little crazy and tried a couple of snowflakes in pink.
Continuing on the theme of interesting terminal decorations, I found this snowflake that appears to be from a Russian website. Here’s the link on postila.
The ends of this flake look like little crowns to me.
All of these flakes were done in either size 10 or size 20 crochet cotton.
