well, i'm from europe, so no "sta-flo" for me.. i'll try ironing them over towel, and i'll also try soaking them in starch and pin them to dry, and i'll se what comes out better:)

Put the towel over the snowflakes, not the snowflakes over the towel. Smiley

i would love if someone would share their instructions for stiffening them. I've bought starch, and my mom says to sprinkle snowflake with it, and iron it, but i'm afraid, since i use some unusual threads, it might melt... any alternatives?Smiley

i stiffened one with glue, and gave it to my friend, he loved it:)


I was worried abouty the same thing. After I put the starch on it, I put a towel over the snowflake, making sure it was lying flat, and kept the iron on very low. I went over it several times to make sure the starch was dry and set, but it kept the direct heat off the snowflake.

Thank you so much! I made the one on the left with different yarn than the other two. It's kind of shiny and slippery, but also thinner than the Red Heart Worsted Weight I used on all the others. It's a bit harder to work with, so I do a new pattern in the Red Heart, and if I really like it, I do it again with the other.


Where are all the other snowflakers? We know you're out there!!

I love yours. They're so pretty. Do you use regular yarn, or thread? I just use regular worsted weight yarn. I've never used thread before. 

I've done a few of the patterns on CPC. These are some of those.

This is a great idea!
These are the first snowflakes I ever made. I'm a beginner, and scared of complicated looking things. (Like, anything other than a plain rectangular scarf!) I've made 4 more since these. I'm hanging a different snowflake on every doorknob in my house. These three are from The Crochet Stitch Bible. I just modified the pattern in the book a couple of different ways. I will post pics of the others too.
I don't have enough posts to put up the actual pics. Sorry. Will get the others up soon!!
