Vintage Crochet Snowflakes

How is everyone doing?  Are you all ready for the big Thanksgiving Holiday?

I am usually on Team Thanksgiving…but this year I decided to get my Christmas up early!!!  I had the help of several of my grandkids and kids!

So with all of their help, I was able to get everything all done in the decorating department in just 2 days!!!  I think I will recruit them every year from here on out.

Today, I have a fun idea that some of you might want to give a try.  They are Vintage Crochet Snowflakes!vintage crochet snowflakesWhen my husband was in the hospital a couple of months ago, my newest DIL brought me a fun gift from her mom!  It had several fun magazines, this book, the crochet hooks and thread!  It was so thoughtful of them to do this and it warmed my heart!

During the last two months I have learned how to crochet these darling little Vintage Snowflakes!

I remember these from back in the day when my mom used to make them!vintage crochet snowflakesEach one of them is different and there are patterns for 100 different snowflakes!vintage crochet snowflakeEach one is so unique.  In fact, even if I were to do the same pattern, they would turn out a little bit different!  Such a fun craft!vintage crochet snowflakesHere is the book up close.  I am not sure where they bought it, but you can find it here.  Or just google the title to find it in other places.

The book has wonderful detailed instructions on how to make the snowflakes.  And also on how to block and stiffen them!

This is going to make a fun little gift that I have in mind. 

You will have to wait…until I get it finished to see what I am making!!

But, they would be darling hanging on a Christmas tree, or as gift tags, or cards!vintage crochet snowflakesYou can see what size they are from this picture. 

They are only about 2 inches in diameter.  If you wanted to make them bigger, all you would need to do is use a larger hook, or just keep adding more rows to make them larger!

Do any of you remember having Vintage Crochet Snowflakes when you were growing up?  I love that all things vintage are making a come back!

 Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving day…and that you get to spend it with those that you love!

Thanks for Visiting!

  1. Back in the winter of 2009, I fell in love with crocheting snowflakes and have been making them ever since. I’ve given away many and still have more than enough to cover my 9 foot tree in a blizzard. This is an addicting craft. Google “snowflake Monday” to get to Snowcatchers blog. She publishes a new and original snowflake every Monday. Have tons of fun!

    1. Shantelle, Wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to write your comment! I love it that you have made so many of them! I will have to look up “snowflake Monday” now to see what she has! Thanks so much!

  2. Oh I love those little snowflakes! My mom could make things like that but I never learned. Does it show a beginner how to make them or do
    you need a lot of crocheting experience? What a sweet and thoughtful gift!

    1. Debbie, It has pretty detailed instructions on how to make them…and there are beginner and intermediate patterns. I just did the beginner patterns and I was able to figure it out. One thing about this book is that you can make up your own pattern. I did one of the snowflakes wrong, but I just kept repeating what I did to make my own version! Ha Ha!

  3. Oh my goodness! Thank you! I have a very small collection from one of my great Aunts and have always wanted to make more to fill my tree and use as garland. Thanks for the info!

    1. DeAnna, What a treasure to have some from your great Aunt!!! I love the idea of making a garland out of these. I might just have to try that! Thanks for sharing. Good luck if you decide to make some. They are pretty fun to do.

  4. I made these years go and only have 1 left as I gave them away. I loved making them. I starched them and hung them in my windows for years.

    1. Donna, Thank you so much for sharing your comment. I love that you gave them all away…I hope the recipients treasure them! I love the idea of hanging them in the window…I might just have to try that! Hope you have a wonderful day!

    1. Dot, If you already know how to crochet, then you would love to do these quick little projects. Good luck! Hope you have a wonderful day!
