Hook Lucy Croft’s snowflake in wintry white .
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.
