Crocheted Snowflake Garland

I have been busy crocheting lately.  I have many things to share with you over the next few days!  Plus, I procrastinated yet again and I'm scrambling to finish a another baby blanket!  I'm trying out another new pattern so it makes it much more fun to do!

I've had a pattern for snowflake garland for awhile and I wanted to make it for my January decorations.  It would have been ideal to have it finished right after Christmas.  Well, January is almost over and I just finished it!  I can check that off my list and get to other things.  After all,  I have Valentine's Day decorations I want to work on!

This was a quick and easy pattern.  The pattern itself says it is for an intermediate crocheter.  I don't agree.  I thought it was fairly easy.  If you know all the stitches, you can complete it fast!
There should be a beautiful coffee filter wreath hanging from the mirror, but it isn't finished yet.  I have issues focusing.  I have so many crafts I want to do that I have a few going at a time.  Hopefully, the wreath will be finished soon!

The pattern is provided by Red Heart and can be downloaded here.  I added a piece to each end so that I would have something to hang it by.  Here are the details of that piece:  Chain 15.  Hdc in each st.  Sl st into third loop of last snowflake.  Sl st back into other side of chain.  Fasten off.  Repeat for other side.

I really like it!  I think it is a nice decoration to go with my other winter whites.  Valentine's Day is up next.  Wait till you see what I am working on for my mantle!

  9. Very fun. I am just finishing up a similar, though less complex project. I saw crocheted snowflakes in Martha's Living magazine almost 10 years ago, and have saved it all this time. I finally pulled it out, and have been playing around with it. I'm really impressed with yours!
