Who says a snowflake has to be white? Well I never did. Today any and everything goes. These colorful winter snowflakes would be appropriate to display during the winter months in the colors that would best suite your homes decor. Don't be afraid of color!

These are not your typical winter snowflakes. I love the colors that have been selected here. I guess these would be called "retro" colored. These would also serve well applied in a frame or attached to pillows or just hung on the tree.

Thats very cute. But the color combo looks more like patriotic snowflakes LOL LOL instead of Christmas / winter flakes. I would think about changing the colors to red, green, and white or just red and white. I made my first banner earlier this year during a mystery CAL. They are very easy to make.

No, No Hippie Chick! They really do not look patriotic at all! They are truly like a 50's diner color scheme. I made these last Christmas and I couldn't be happier with my work. They look awesome strung on a tree, but I currently have them wrapped on the stairs. Also, my friend has used hers that I made to decorate her hair salon! Her salon is called Retro Hair Studio. OH- one thing I wish I would have done is lightly starch them. It would make all the difference.

Yep, totally patriotic. That was my first thought also. Back in the 60s and 70s my mother wore red white and blue all the time, and she crocheted red white and blue also. She would have loved these. I prefer the more traditional red and green Christmas colors.

I really like this snowflake garland. The instructions indicate the individual snowflakes should be a nice size when finished. I plan to make mine all in white sparkle yarn and use a red ribbon to string them all together. I imagine the snowflakes can also be used separately as package decorations.

These oversized snowflakes dont have to be restricted to a banister! I can easily see them hand stitched on a batch of throw pillows. Im making sets of these in green and red, stitching two together around a small bean bag, and using them for a homemade toss across game for when the grandchildren come to visit. This is such an easy pattern as it only uses single stitches and chainsperfect for a beginner.

Wow. Another clever idea. Some of us, or most of us have stairs to adorn especially during Christmas and this Winter Snowflake Garland is a good idea. If you have been decorating your stairs area with the traditional green wreath adorned with the shiny balls and acorns then why not try this one? You can make this garland in the traditional Christmas colors of green and red and white.

This is a really different looking snowflake. Kind of reminds me of the snowflakes from "Frozen." Bold and angular as opposed the the dainty and lacy ones you usually see. Those are beautiful too, but that thread work gives me carpal tunnel! Love that this one is made from worsted size yarn. I like princess6860504 idea of using these for gift toppers. Thanks!

I encourage you all to just give this a try! Once you make your first one, you'll be amazed at how fas they work up. I made 2 strings of garland for a gift for a dear friend and she loved it. They also make great add-ons to top off individual gifts. Or maybe give a set of three as a gift in itself! Please, I wish some more people would try this pattern.

I've been crocheting for years, but have never come across "sc in round" before. What does that mean?

That phrase is a little deceiving. Just leave out the words "in round" and sc in the next stitches.
