These are beautiful jewel tone snowflakes! I love the colors used for this pattern, and I would definitely use some similar to this to make my own set of snowflakes. Who do you know that would proudly display these snowflakes on their tree? Thank you for the great, easy pattern!

My cousin is the owner of an assisted facility home. She only has a maximum of five residents and she is the best. During the Christmas holiday, she will erect two trees in the home. One in the living area and one in the basement. That does not include the decorations outside. I often find nice pieces at thrift stores and give to her. This will be the first crochet Christmas ornament that I will give her. I know she will appreciate them no matter what color.

Jewel tones are not typically what you think of when you think of snowflakes but these are really pretty. Now a days, Christmas colors have gone so far away from the traditional red and green that anything goes. All that matters now is that you love it. For right now, my Christmas colors are shades of pink and white, (ikr) I can probably find enough contrast/complimenting shades to make these jewel tone snowflakes that blend in with my decor. Or these may be the start of a new color scheme.

Oh, these Jewel Tone Crochet Snowflakes are a good tree decor idea. They will give color to the Christmas tree and the surrounding environment. You can use the colors in your tree and the holiday theme and you're okay.

These are very pretty and very easy for me to make. I have hundreds, yes hundreds of skeins of yarn to work with so the colors will be the hardest part to pick from. But it won't be an ornament . I love to make mobiles and these will really be great to use. Thank you for sharing this great idea and pattern.

I love this colorful alternative to the traditional snowflake! A great stashbuster, too! This might be a bit challenging for beginners, but is easy enough for slightly experienced crocheters. The directions are clearly written for Version A, and include instructions for adapting the pattern for additional versions. I am trying to learn to read diagrams, so I appreciate having both methods in the same set of instructions.

These ornaments would be perfect using lion brand bon bon product. Some of them come in a size 3 yarn. Plus the bon bon package of 8 are all color coordinated.

These are gorgeous! I love the layered look and jeweltones in this design, it's pretty enough to hang year round. I see they are about 6" with medium weight yarn, but I would like to make these about half the size to hang on a tree, what type of yarn should I use for that? Would crochet thread work? I saved this pattern so I can experiment with it later.

HI, Jobers77! I was looking at ornament patterns and I came across your question regarding the size of the ornament and how to make them smaller. I have a great idea for you. Have you heard of Lion Brand BonBons? I think those would be great. They have sparkle and actually come in a jewel toned pack.I have used the yarn on flower garland and it's the perfect weight/size.
