I crocheted snowflake ornaments to give to the girls in my book-club.
I found the free instructions here.
It's a Russian you-tube, with English subtitles.
(So now I know how to count to six in Russian.)
I used a much thicker yarn (Baby Bee Sweet Delight) and larger hook (F) than she did,
because that is what I had on hand.
My stars ended up being about 7 inches across; a nice size to hang in a window.
I starched (spray starch) and blocked by lightly pressing them between cloths.
After drying overnight, I sewed a few sequins and beads to the points
to add a wee bit of sparkle.
