How to Make a Crochet Flower/Snowflake Bed Cover

September 29, 2005

I used this motif because it can be used year-round. In the spring, summer, and fall I call them flowers and in the winter I call them snowflakes! The instructions are the same for any size bed. The only difference is - the bigger the bed, the more pieces you need. This is not a project you'll finish overnight, but it's well worth it.

Fasten off.

Number of motifs to make: The number of pieces that you will need will vary by the size crochet hook you chose, the size of your bed, and how you want it to cover your bed. There are 225 in the cover pictured.

Final step: Place several pieces together to see how you want them to fit together. Then sew corners with needle and thread, which holds much better than sewing it with yarn.
