I needed to find something to make my friend for Christmas that would be cute, but not add a bunch of stress to my already full plate. She likes snowflakes, so i decided a nice, easy snowflake garland would be perfect.

For the first 4 snowflakes (the ones in the middle), i used this pattern: http://www.mockingbirdhillcottage.com/2011/11/crochet-snowflake-garland.html
But i changed it so it would have 6 points, like a snowflake, rather than 7.

Then i came up with my own.

I am no pattern writer, these are just my notes... So, if it doesn't make any sense (very likely), let me know, and i'll do my best to explain it.

Top row of snowflakes:
ch 6, sl to join
ch 3 (acts as first dc), dc, ch1, *2dc, ch1* until there are 12 stitches, sl to join
*ch2, dc ch4, sl tbl of first chain, ch2, sl next stitch* rep around

Bottom row:
ch 9, sl to join
ch 3 (first dc), 17dc, sl to join
ch 7, sl tbl of 2nd chain, 3sc, *ch6 sl tbl of first chain, 3sc* repeat ** to end, sl to join

If anybody tries these out, please show me! I'd love to see them!

Maybe I can do this...I'm not the greatest at crocheting. They're cute & I think it would be a fun project to brighten up the place since we're un-decorating which is kind of depressing after the holidays. They look great!  Smiley

I have absolutely ZERO experience with crochet or even knitting, but all my holiday decorations are snowflake-themed, and I think I *have* to make this. Would this be something easy for a complete noob like me, or should I start with something else and eventually get around to this?

Thanks, kellydawn! I used some red heart super saver i had on hand. I can't remember what hook i used, but probably G or H.

Alexampersandra, i think these would be easy for a new crocheter. I would say just practice all of the stitches -- single crochet, double crochet, chain, and slip stitch, and once you get comfortable with those, you should be fine.
