Snowflake Roundup 2017 Feeling Blue

blue flakes 2017_1533

This year winter I mixed it up a bit and went on a little blue spree, making snowflakes to give to friends.

I decided to search online for new patterns, and I really like to work from charts. After seeing one chart on a Russian site I decided to search Russian snowflake patterns. To do this I googled “translate English to Russian”, then entered crochet snowflake into the English box. I cut and pasted the Russian translation, with the Russian characters, and pasted them into a Google search. Then I browsed the results.

The snowflake above is from  These patterns are only charted. Technical details are on my Ravelry project page

Another one from a Russian website The thread for both of these flakes was a thrift store find, Southmaid size 10 crochet cotton. It’s a nice thread, if you stumble upon it I’d recommend grabbing it. My Ravelry project page link.

A dear Ravelry friend gave me this thread, DMC cotton lustre and the pattern for this snowflake as a gift. The pattern is from Crochet Snowflakes red a digital book by Petra Tornack-Zimmerman. This is not free but well worth the few dollars spent for 9 snowflakes with charts and written instructions. Details on my Ravelry project page.

The snowflake above is from Tornack-Zimmerman’s digital book Crochet Snowflakes vol 2 blue. It’s one of my favorites, looks great once blocked. Ravelry project page. I would highly recommend both of these pattern collections.

The flake above is kind of sloppily blocked. The pattern is from a tumbler blog post. I like the pattern a lot, it works up quickly and looks nice in different sized yarns. See my Ravelry project page for dimensions etc.
