I love both, I'd love to know the snowflake pattern too. Did you starch these too? Your tree is going to look great.

cowladycc and cabin fever-

the snowflake pattern was found here:http://www.sarahanns.com/crochetworks/snowflakes.html, the one i ave pictured is Number 2. You can also find more at crochetpatterncentral.com, or check out ravelry if you have a membership:)

I haven't starched the snowflakes (i have 2 more that aren't pictured) as i haven't pinned and blocked them yet. All i've done so far with the one is to wet and pin it to get its initial shape, and when i'm ready to stiffen it i will probably use a spray fabric starch/stiffener. I've used a water/sugar solution before, but it's kinda messy and sticky. The plus about the sugar solution is that it kind of crystallizes and gives a slight sparkle, though i've heard you can use epsom salt for the same effect. You can also use elmers glue, but i've heard that over time it yellows.

thanks everybody:)

chrissiemags- the tiny stocking pattern i found here: http://www.sarahanns.com/crochetworks/snowflakes.html

i wasn't able to find a pattern for a larger one that i liked so I'm using this miniature pattern as a reference to make a larger stocking. but again, if you check out crochetpatterncentral.com and search 'stocking' you can find a list of patterns to use:)

Thanks so much for posting the links to the snowflakes patterns! I decided earlier today that I wanted to crochet some, and rather than trawling the www I thought I would come straight to craftster and voila! you have instantly helped me out!
