Ember Crochet Snowflake Ornament [Free Crochet Pattern]

I can’t believe it’s already part five of the snowy CAL! This week’s design reminds me a little bit of a spiderweb – it has a lacy center and rounded edges. It stands out among the other snowflakes thanks to its delicate shape. This crochet pattern is very easy to follow and uses very basic stitches.

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

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.
