Frosty Star Snowflake | Free Crochet Pattern +Video!

It’s Christmastime again, my dear readers, so I’m bringing another crochet snowflake ornament pattern for you! I know that I’m a little bit late in the game this year, but I couldn’t resist sharing it. Hey, this year was hard on us all, am I right?!

Few words on the project

This crochet snowflake pattern is easy enough for beginners to follow, but it includes picots, which can be a new technique for many of you. I explain how to make it in my video, so head there if you need! Other than that, this project uses basic stitches only.

In the video tutorial I use thick cotton yarn, because it makes a better choice for the visuals. In real life, however, crochet ornaments look best when made with thread and small crochet hook. Learn more about yarn types in my Yarn 101 Series of articles.

In case you’ve missed it, last year I’ve created 6 snowflake patterns in my Crochet Snowflake Mini CAL. All of them are free and some of them have video tutorials!

You can hang these snowflakes on your Christmas tree, or add them to the gifts this year. For more inspiration, see my Handmade Gift Guide and Gift Guide for Crafters.


LEVEL – upper beginner

TERMS – standard US



  • yarn: 100% cotton thread – I used an unpopular Polish one, but something like Scheepjes Maxi Sugar Rush should be ok, too! 
  • crochet hook 1.5 mm
  • scissors


  • snowflake: 9,5 cm (~3,75″)
  • remember that your yarn weight of choice, hook size and crocheting style can affect the final size of the ornament, as well as blocking and stiffening.
