Aspen Crochet Snowflake Ornament [Free Crochet Pattern]

Welcome to the sixth part of the snowflake mini CAL πŸ™‚ This week’s design is my favorite – it’s delicate, feminine, and floral. Working on it feels like making a lacy crochet flower, and if you’re clever, you’d easily turn this snowflake into one.

Stitchwise, this pattern requires some focus, as it combines tall stitches with wobbly chains and spiky picots. That said, it’s still very much suitable for beginners – just don’t forget to block it when you’re done.

This year’s collection of ornaments has wintery names, fitting perfectly into the season of cold, white snow and festivities.
