In this post you will find a free crochet pattern for my Frizzy Daisy Snowflake with tips and tutorials how to make it. However let’s start from the beginning. 

Winter is here and it has been snowing all day today. The trees and roofs look amazing in the snow. I love a coffee-by-the-fireplace session, and the coziness of a warm blanket. As it is Advent, I am waiting for Christmas and something big to happen. But with all the snow and cold, there is also a small longing for sun and grass and flowers, so I had an idea to commemorate a bit of summer in my snowflakes! That’s how the Frizzy Daisy Snowflake was created.

Materials you will need:

  1. cotton thread (I used Aunt Lydia’s Classic Cotton Crochet Thread size 10)
  2. crochet hook (I used US – 7/1.65 mm)
  3. tapestry/yarn needle (optional)
  4. scissors 

A preamble for beginners:  Even if you are a complete newbie, you are good to go! I will try to describe the pattern and steps in a more wordy way, than usual. First, start with a slip knot, here is a tutorial. Then make a foundation chain from 7 chains. Join the last chain with the first chain by inserting a hook into the first chain you made, yarn over and pull it through. You just made your first slip stitch. (Slip stitch is often abbreviated as sp st). Now you are good to start the first row. 

 Below is an written tutorial, how to make this snowflake. I haven’t used abraviations and tried to suport you with photo, whenever there can be a confusion.

Round 1: Chain 3, 2 double crochet in the ring. Now, look carefully. In a minute we will insert a hook at the top of a double crochet you are at. We are going to create a picot.

To do that, make 4 chains and insert the hook into the top stitch of the last double crochet you made.  Photo: How to make a crochet picot from 4 chains. Picot here is used to create a flower stamen.  Now yarn over and pull it through (you just made another slip stitch). Easy peasy, eh? Make 3 double crochet in the ring. We will picot again – 4 chains, insert the hook into the last double crochet, yarn over and pull through.  Repeat 4 times.  You will get 6 petals (edges) in total. To finish this round, insert the hook into the 3rd (upper) chain of chain 3 when we started this round.

Round 2: Move to the middle in between picots, so insert the hook in the next double crochet, yarn over and pull though.  Make 3 chains for high and 7 for arch, so 10 chains in total. Skip the nearest picot, and double crochet into the middle inbetween the next picots.

 Chain 7, double crochet in between the next 2 picots. repeat 4 more times, to get 6 double crochet and 6 arches. Finish the round by slip stitch into the 3rd chain from the beginning of this round.

Round 3:  Slip stitch to move on the next arch. Single crochet, chain 1, 4 double crochet.  Make a picot similar to the one you already know – chain 4 and slip stitch into the last double crochet. 4 double crochet, chain 1, single crochet, slip stitch.  Repeat 5 times. You will get 6 flower petals in total. Slip stitch to move into the next arch. Slip st in sc, slip st in 2 dc. 

Round 4: Chain 4, slip stitch into the picot (edge). Chain 3, slip stitch into the picot. Chain 5, slip stitch into the picot, chain 7, slip stitch into the picot, chain 5, slip stitch into the picot, chain 3, slip stitch into the picot.  Chain  4, slip stitch in the middle of 4 double crochet from the previous round. Chain 7, slip stitch into the chain 3. 2 chains. Slip stitch in between 4 double crochets from the previous round.  Repeat 5 times all steps from round 4. Cut the thread.
