Eira Crochet Snowflake Ornament [Free Crochet Pattern]

This snowflake pattern is one of my favorites because it has quite an unusual shape. Big eyelets, long chains and little picots all gain shape after blocking and stiffening. It’s up to you how the final shape will look like. Pin the center of the ornament in place while blocking and get creative with pinning the arms.

This year’s collection of ornaments has wintery names, fitting perfectly into the season of cold, white snow and festivities. I hope it will be a fun challenge and a beautiful decoration!

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.
