I love to work with thread. The projects tend to take a little longer to complete because of it but when I take my time I am almost always pleased with the end result. This Irish snowflake can be completed in seven rounds so it sounds simple enough. Only an attempt to make it will determine just how difficult the project is.

From the picture posted I was almost certain that the flake had some kind of glimmer. I read over the directions and see that glitter is listed in the materials list so the glitter is added after crochet. Of course that is optional but this is the first snowflake that I have seen that as an option. I like the idea.

I love the intricate and delicate look of this snowflake. And although it takes patience to work with thread, it is still quick to make these. These would be cute hung on the tree or strung together to make a decorative garland. You could even attach them to a gift.

Wouldn't a whole Christmas tree full of these six inch beauties and red ribbons be beautiful! I've never been able to get the hang of working with the crochet thread but this pattern will have me trying again. Good idea to use glue to both apply the glitter and stiffen the snowflake!

Why has the "save pattern" button disappeared...AGAIN?? I can't save any of this Christmas stuff!
Nov 20, 2017
Hi there! I'm glad you asked! The save button is now below the pattern. It's a gray button with a plus sign and the word "save" included. Please let me know if you don't see it and I'll send you a screenshot!

I see patterns for many different snowflakes on a lot of different sites this time of the year, but of all of them that I have seen so far, I do believe this one to be the prettiest yet. I am not Irish, not that I know of, so I am not sure what keeps drawing me back to this snowflake pattern as I do remember seeing it before.

So delicate and so lovely. Very intricate work that needs time and care to create, but the end result will be worth all the hard work. I would love to make these to hang from our patio door and all of our windows at Christmas time when we have our lights and decorations out.

Awwwwwwwwwwwww A flood of memories of my beloved GrandMa. She used to make gorgeous doilies and things like this. She used such tiny thread, I wondered how on earth she did it! I am trying but only use large thread and hooks. THANKS for all your beautiful patterns.

This also brings back so many memories for me, I had a grandmother and aunt who regularly made these for us to decorate our Christmas tree with. I still have some of them and always wondered how on Earth they created them! They were so dainty and delicate, can't wait to try making these myself!

I love your snowflake crochet patterns. Would be willing to pay for a booklet with all the patterns in it. Easier than copying and pasting each so I can have it beside me while creating them. Another option would be creating it so it could be paid for and downloaded to a Kindle. Thoughts?

I copied this into MS Excel and found that the font color was white. I changed the font to black and was able to print. Hope this helps!
