Free Crochet Pattern: 2-Round Snowflake

By Claire Golden – 6 Comments

Snow is one of my favorite things about winter. There’s something so cozy about watching the snow fall outside while you curl up with a blanket and a crochet project. It doesn’t snow much where I live, though, so this little snowflake is my solution. They’re perfect for a gift topper, hair clip, or strung together in a garland. With only 2 rounds, you can make a pile of them in a few hours…and these snowflakes won’t give you frostbite.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 3″ (7.5 cm) diameter (measured from point to point)

Light Weight Yarn (approximately 5 yards or less)
Crochet Hook F (3.75 mm)
crochet yarn size 4

Since the snowflake is so small, it’s most efficient to use the snowflake itself as your gauge swatch. Crochet the 2 rounds of the pattern and determine if you like the size. If not, increase or decrease your hook size to make the snowflake bigger or smaller.
Rounds 1-2 in pattern measure 3″ (7.5 cm) in diameter (from point to point).
