Crocheted snowflakes





 There is nothing more beautiful and memorable than a warm and handmade Christmas. So this year I thought it would be nice if I could start a bit early and avoid the last minute, pre-Christmas madness I always seem to inevitably fall into by burdening myself with too many projects. 

I used three different patterns for the big snowflakes and quite a simple one for the small ones. And I made them in baby blue and different shades of grey. No whites this time (except one tiny). For the whites I am saving one gorgeous and exquisite pattern.

Have you started your Christmas crafting?





P.S I've made some for the shop too.

These are absolutely LOVELY! I adore all things snowflake related (it's "my" special Christmas symbol - everyone in my family has their favorite: reindeer, stars etc). You are really talented! :)

These are just beautiful, and would carry over past Christmas into icy January - to wear as a brooch or appliqué to a scarf would be pretty too.

I love crocheted snowflakes! Every year I plan to make some but... I never have time!!!
They would look gorgeous on the Christmas tree! I'd love them white and with glitters spread all over, maybe this year I'll find the time... :)

Wow, did you really make these little beauties, Maya? They are amazing! I love the cool grey tones, they make a lovely arrangement :)

Very pretty. Lovely colors. I had plans for back to school inspired crochet and cross-stitch, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas -- and so far, I've done nada. Not a thing! :/
