10 FREE Magical Snowflake Crochet Patterns
There’s something about winter that really sets the fairytale wonderland vibe. Maybe it’s the holiday cheer, or the excited feelings spreading around as everyone focuses on getting their gifts together and spending quality time with their family, or even the cliché Hallmark movies with their happy endings.
And then the snow starts falling, spreading a blanket of white crystals over everything and it gets really cold outside. But that’s where the hot cocoa and warm gingerbread come in!
So why not try and capture some of that wonderful winter spirit in our crochet? Because in my opinion, crochet is one of the best ways to transfer your thoughts and feelings into a beautiful, intricate, cozy item which you can present to the world. And one of the signatures of winter is the snowflakes which we find piled up on nearly everything outdoors. That’s why I’ve rounded up 10 FREE snowflake crochet patterns which you can make for yourself or a loved one (and gift this holiday season!).

Christmas Snowflake by SnowflakeCottageCrochet (that’s me!)
This pattern is super quick and easy to make with just 4 rounds (so you can get a bunch ready to slip into your packaging this season!). It’s a great way to use up scrap yarn and you can do so much with them when they’re ready, such as joining their points together for a gorgeous lacy tablerunner or placement.
Snowflake by Nicki’s Homemade Craft
You can pop this snowflake into an advent calendar or use as a coaster — the designer made one in 10 minutes! If you use nice and sparkly yarn, it’ll look even more like a real snowflake and you only need to know how to single crochet (which makes it sturdy as well).
Zeta Snowflake by Crochets by Trista
You can use a smaller hook to alter this pattern and make a fancy pair of earrings (or use a larger one and make a centerpiece). This gorgeous snowflake comes with clear detailed instructions and lots of ideas on what you can do with it.
Snappy Snowflake by Ambassador Crochet
In just 3 rounds, this crochet snowflake will be all ready for you to use as you like! One of the best parts of all of these snowflake crochet patterns is that you can decide which colors you want to make them in, according to this season’s theme.
Bentley Flake by Revel Crochet
What a dainty snowflake! This pattern comes with details on how to make this snowflake as well as how to create the grid for blocking it so that all of its points are neat and straight. We wouldn’t want a wonky snowflake, would we?
Crochet Heart Snowflake by GoldenLucyCrafts
This adorable snowflake pattern starts with a heart at its center before branching into a delicate snowflake. We know the holidays always come with love and warmth. What better way to express the wholesomeness than with these heartfelt crochet snowflakes?
Omega Snowflake by Crochets by Trista
Another gorgeous snowflake pattern from the Zeta Snowflake designer, this one is denser and has loops at its ends. You can string some together into a bunting or make different sizes for a tapered earring or keychain. The possibilities are endless!
There are TWO crochet snowflake patterns in this one. You can use PVA Glue to stiffen them up and design your own wreath. The instructions detail the entire process so you won’t get lost at any point!
Eastern Star Motif by Underground Crafter
This is a six-point crochet snowflake which you can attach to a piece of felt to use as a gift tag (tutorial included). The shape of this snowflake is similar to a star. So once the holidays are over, you don’t have to worry about taking it down!
Crochet Snowflake Ornament by DesertBlossomCrafts
This snowflake is made from basic stitches (beginner-friendly!) like most of the patterns in this roundup. Snowflakes look so intricate and lacy but are really easy to make, so don’t be daunted. And this snowflake crochet pattern roundup has all sorts for you to dive into. Once you get the hang of it, you can even design your own!
