Beau­ti­ful cro­chet snowflakes.

Dream­ing of a white Christ­mas? Turn your dreams into re­al­ity by hook­ing Lucy Croft’s oh-so­pretty snowflake shape. It’s worked in squashy Lang Merino yarn (all the way from snow-free Aus­tralia!), which gives amaz­ing stitch def­i­ni­tion, so your del­i­cate snowflakes will have de­tailed tex­ture as well as that clas­sic, feath­ery shape. Hook up a whole win­ter flurry.
