People all over the world are coming together to encourage the students of Sandy Hook who were traumatized earlier this month by the tragic shooting. They are making snowflakes and mailing them out before January 12th so the students will see all the different snowflakes in the hallways and classrooms when they return from Christmas break. I crochet a handful of simple snowflakes and wanted to share the pattern. Its really easy and since each snowflake is unique and different it doesn't matter if you get the pattern perfect. Its the thought and the intentions in the heart that counts.
I used Red Heart Super Saver white yarn and a J hook.
dc into the first chain (ch furthest from the hook/this counts as first dc) [dc in first ch, ch 1] *crochet whats listed in the [ ] 7x*
sl st to 3rd ch of the first dc
ch 1, [(hdc, ch 4, hdc - do this in each large hole/space made by dc) sl st in next dc] 7x
when you sl st the last dc, pull enough yarn through to create a loop to hang the snowflake
Send your snowflakes no later than January 12, 2013 to:
Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514
Im left handed trying to explain this backwards so feel free to email me if you have any questions about the pattern!
