This very quick crochet ornament can be a star or a snowflake, and works up in no time.
Today’s project is perfect for last-minute gifting. This ornament uses a mere dozen yards of yarn and can literally be done in about 5 minutes
About The Puffy Crochet Snowflake/Star Ornament
When done with the gauge indicated in this pattern, these stars turn out to be almost 4” across. At this size they would be nice as accents tied onto a gift ribbon, as well as used for decorating a tree.
To make one of these stars/snowflakes for yourself, you’ll need the following:
- E4/3.50mm hook
- 11 yards of weight 3 yarn
- Tapestry Needle
And that’s it! For my white snowflake, I used Cotlin yarn from Wecrochet. This yarn gave the project a nice natural look. By using a relatively small hook, I was able to get these stars to keep their shape well without the starching that is often done with traditional crochet ornaments.
This pattern is very easy, using mostly chain stitches, single crochet, and double crochet. The only thing beyond these basic stitches that you will need to do is create clusters with certain stitches.
