A Free Crochet Pattern
This year has absolutely flowm by. I can’t believe Christmas is only a few weeks a way. It is definitely time to get last minute shopping and decorating done. So, here is another quick decoration pattern, for those of us who procrastinate.The Crochet Snowflake Garland can be made in a night or weekend, depending on the length you choose. The snowflakes work up in 3 rows, and can be used as ornaments, if you prefer.
For this pattern I used fingering weight yarn, but you can use whatever you like. However, keep in mind, the size of the snowflakes will change depending on the weight of yarn you use. The whole garland only uses around 50 yards of yarn and it works up quickly. It can be made in a only few hours, assuming you make it exactly as I did. You can, of course, make your garland as long as you’d like.
d-3.25 mm hook
Madelinetosh Tosh Merino light in Soot, or yards of fingering weight yarn
sc = single crochet
slst = slip stitch
2 half double crochet cluster=2hdc-cl: yo, insert hook in stitch, yo, pull up a loop, yo, insert in same stitch, yo, pull up a loop (5 loops on the hook), yo and pull through all loops on hook.

This pattern is worked in joined rounds. Guage is not important in this pattern. You can change the size of the snowflakes by sizing up the hooks or yarn. Blocking is important to help set and maintain the shape of the snowflakes.

Chain 40, attach to one of the snowflake points with a slst, chain 40, and attach another snowflake the same way as the previous one. Continue attaching this way with 40 chains in between the snowflakes. Once you’ve attached all the snowflakes, chain 40 more. Fasten off.
