Sharing is caring!

This post includes affiliate links.

This free pattern is a gorgeous Crochet Snowflake that is easily made with single crochet stitches. It also comes with an easy to understand video tutorial that explains how to crochet it step by step with lovely metallic white yarn.

It is the time of the year again. It is not only finally Winter, but also Christmas time, at least in my home. It will be beautifully decorated, feels cozy and warm, but would not be complete without some Snowflakes around the house. Especially on my Snowman Advent Calendar for which I designed these cute Snowflakes for.

I love that this worsted weighted yarn is so easy to crochet with, even though it has some metallic strands in it. In fact, the metallic strands really make the crochet snowflake come to life.
