Another of the original 9 or so I am submitting this week. Again, I used a sisle type yarn for a country effect. You can use a thread crochet pattern and it will come out bigger, but that will be the only difference.
My pattern was just the first 3 rows of a nice little doily I found.
My motto is Keep It Simple Sandi!!
This yarn was thick, but if you want a nice bigger size, you can use a double strand with a size "N" hook.
Chain 6 and join for a circle. Chain 8 (more if you want it bigger), and join in the same circle. Make another four of those.
To make sure your last "loop" is at the top, chain 4 and make a treble crochet (2 times around the hook instead of once for a double), and your loops top will be on top instead of at the bottom with the others.
Snowflake: Makes 3
Using crochet cotton and a size 11 hook chain 4. Join with a slip stitch to form a ring, work 13 double crochet in ring, slip stitch in top of first double crochet. *Chain 3 skip next stitch, slip stitch in next stitch. Repeat from * around the ring. Fasten off. Stiffen if necessary. Add wires for pierced ears and make a chain for the necklace.

These are some of the snowflakes that I have crocheted recently from patterns I got online.
I will eventually be making some mobiles out of them and give away for gifts.
