Alba Crochet Snowflake Ornament [Free Crochet Pattern]

The first of seven free crochet snowflake patterns is here! This year’s collection of ornaments has wintery names, fitting perfectly into the season of cold, white snow and festivities.

What I love the most about this lacy pattern is the delicate balance between the openwork and solid elements. I wanted the center to resemble a star, with pointy arms and picots all around the outermost row of stitches. I hope you’ll find this project easy and fun to make, as it was for me to design it.

Remember that your yarn weight of choice, hook size, and crocheting style can affect the final size of the ornament. Blocking and stiffening are crucial to make it look good.
