Crochet Snowflakes Christmas Ornaments
Every Christmas I make one or two selfmade ornaments for our Christmas tree. Usually I do it with paper and try to attain a vintage look by finding inspiration in old ornaments for sale on the Internet. This year I tried to see what I could do with thin cotton yarn. This isn’t really my preferred type of yarn, because I can’t work fast with thin thread and a 2 mm crochet hook. But I managed to make these fragile snowflakes.
I like the result: The ornaments from my pattern book are meant to be snowflakes. But made in red, and aheem… shaped a little crooked, they just do get this oldfashioned look, that will work well with our other things for the tree.

The yarn is discontinued but good to work with: It didn’t split at all while working with a small crochet hook.
This morning the day started bright and sunny, – perfect for a fast photo shoot at the windows.
