15 Crochet Patterns With Snowflakes

15 Crochet Patterns With Snowflakes

A while back, I rounded up 10 FREE snowflake crochet patterns which showed all sorts of techniques to crochet the most intricate, delicate snowflakes. This week, I’m back with a roundup of 15 free and paid crochet patterns WITH snowflakes. These are accessories, home decor items, squares, ornaments, and more which incorporate snowflakes.

By going through this roundup, not only will you get all sorts of new ideas on what to make while it snows outside, but you can also figure out what else you can do with the snowflakes you’ve made. These patterns will really get your creative gears turning!

Some of these patterns are more complex than others, some have fancy colorwork or are seamed together. They all come with very detailed instructions and you won’t get lost in between with these fabulous crocheters guiding you through.

15 Crochet Patterns With Snowflakes

These are crochet patterns that have some form of snowflake in them, whether appliquéd on or worked into the pattern as a tapestry. You can learn amazing new tricks and techniques from these patterns.

Click on the picture and it’ll lead you to the post with all of the information regarding the pattern.

Nordic Snowflake Blanket by SunflowerCottageCrochet (that’s me!)

The Nordic Snowflake blanket is worked by creating individual snowflake panels using the corner to corner method and then joining them together. The pattern is simple once you get the hang of it and by using two colors, the Nordic pattern really pops. This is a cozy blanket pattern which is great to curl up in while watching a movie or opening presents on Christmas day.

Girls’ Snowflake Poncho by My Fingers Fly

This is a lightweight poncho made from snowflakes motifs. If you want it to be cozier, you can make it with a thicker yarn but it’s also a great way to carry a bit of winter with you into springtime.

Snowflake Tapestry Pouch by Nicki’s Homemade Crafts

You can use this pouch for so many things including storing your own hooks and notions, makeup brushes, pencils, etc. It could make a handy gift for a traveler to use as for toiletries or for your child to put their crayons on. In my opinion, one can never have too many of these lying around.

Snowflake Coaster by My Crochet Space

If you’re a beginner at mosaic crochet, this pattern is a great way to start. There’s a video demonstration to teach you basics as well as clear instructions on how to crochet this coaster up. If you already know how to use a mosaic graph and do basic mosaic stitches, you’re good to go!

Hometown Holiday Baskets by GreenFoxFarmsDesigns

The Hometown Holiday Baskets crochet pattern has instructions to make a pine tree basket and a snowflake basket. They’re great for gifting if you decide to stuff them with goodies or you could use them for decor around the house with baubles, pinecones, and more! Baskets are always so useful to have lying around the house.

Snowflake Messy Bun Beanie by Nicki’s Homemade Crafts

It’s not easy trying to fit your bun or ponytail under a beanie! That’s why this pattern is so great — it allows you to toss up your hair into a messy bun and keep your head warm. If you’re an experienced crocheter, you can make this in any size you’d like for gifting.

Snowflake Heart Ornament by GoldenLucyCrafts

These are delicate crochet snowflake heart ornaments which you can use to decorate your tree or turn into a pair of stylish earrings. They can also be gifted as a keychain or put together into a wall hanging or garland. They definitely add a romantic touch to the classic snowflake!

Snowflake Square by Hooked For Life

The Snowflake Square uses two colors of yarn and an easy variation of the Tunisian Simple Stitch to create this square. You can crochet this in blue and white to make it seem like it’s snowing and add it to your collection of winter themed squares to put together as a cushion or afghan.

Snowflake Wall Hanging by Blue Star Crochet

The crochet snowflake in this wall hanging consists of only 4 rounds. It works up very fast and you can make the whole wall hanging over the weekend. To hang it up, you can use a branch of holly or pine.

Nordic Star C2C Blanket Square by Juniper & Oakes

Another corner to corner square, this one is a part of the Nordic Winter Afghan C2C CAL which is made up of 12 fun patterns. If you’re looking for an heirloom blanket to pass down, this is the pattern for you!

Snowflake Keyhole Scarf by A Crocheted Simplicity

The giant snowflake on this scarf really pops out because of that red background! This is great unisex crochet scarf pattern and the graph and detailed instructions will guide you through every round. This scarf would make a wonderful present or addition to your own wardrobe.

Snowflake Granny Square by CosyRosieUK

In this square, the snowflake emerges as you stitch it up using a variation of the spike stitch while working in the round. You can make a bunch of these to put together in a blanket. Or use it as a square in a winter-themed afghan!

Snowflake Stitch by DesertBlossomCrafts

This stitch uses different sized chain spaces alternating to create a neat snowflake effect. If you don’t want to embroider snowflakes or do fancy colorwork but still want to capture winter in your projects, you can use this stitch to make pretty much anything!

Christmas Ornaments by Knitz n Purlz

With a Christmas tree, peppermint circle, and snowflake, you can put together this crochet garland too. You can make this in whichever colors you have lying around and use the end product to decorate any surface. String them together as a garland or make each individual one into an ornament — the choice is yours!

Oh So Merry French Press Cozy by Carroway Crochet

The Oh So Merry French Press Cozy keeps all of your hot beverages warm any time of the day. It’s a green option for a reusable cozy that would make a great gift to coffee lovers in your life. In my opinion, not much beats a good cup of hot cocoa or coffee in the winter!

The Roundup:

Simple Scarf by Carroway Crochet

This one will work up super quickly with a 16mm hook and #6 weight yarn!

It’s the perfect simple autumn and winter accessory.

 

Farmhouse Washcloth by Sunflower Cottage Crochet

Use the paired single crochet stitch (don’t worry – we have a video tutorial if you are new to it!) to create the Farmhouse dishcloth which also makes a great washcloth. The paired single crochet stitch is quite a dense one so it will hold up to a lot of scrubbing!

Fish Amigurumi by Loops and Love Crochet

How cute is this one??

I have plenty of scraps in my scrap bucket that would be perfect for this pattern! What about giving them as class gifts or party favours?

Barista Mug Cozy by Crochets by Trista

I love the simple elegance of these cozies!

As someone who drinks a lot of warm drinks I can never have too many of these!

Customise them to the colour scheme of your home and they will be perfect for keeping or gifting. These are a great unisex gift idea. And they make great teacher gifts etc too.

Modern Infinity Granny Scarf by Itchin’ for Some Stitchin’

I have actually made this one already! This is an older pattern from Raelynn but it is a great one. It works up quickly and is perfect for those DK (#3 weight) yarns.

I made mine with part of a left over cake and it looked fantastic. It was quickly claimed by a relative!

Waterlily Washcloth by Simply Melanie Jane

The texture in these washcloths is just so pretty and because the stitches are larger it will work up in no time.

Cool Everyday Scarf by Pam’s Cozy Corner

I often forget how pretty projects can turn out when you just use the very basic stitches in a simple way.

This is one of those projects that makes me appreciate those basic stitches even more.

Simple Cotton pouch by Creations by Courtney.

Pouches are so handy for a lot of things! Use it as a coin purse, stitch marker pouch, keep your earphones in it or maybe a couple of crayons to keep the kids occupied while you are out and about.

How will you use yours?

Rhapsody Headband by Pine Tree Crochet

This pattern is a great quick gift idea, an ideal stash buster, and a super make it for me project!

Rapunzel’s Braided Scarf by Once upon a Cheerio

You can see why this one was named after Rapunzel!

This is such a unique looking scarf. I’ve added it to my must makes list!

Thanksgiving Patterns Round Up!

Thanksgiving Patterns Round Up!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Have you started thinking about your decorations yet? If your answer is no then we have 27 fabulous patterns in our round up below (plus 2 from us which makes 29). I have included both free and paid patterns.

I know that once school is back people start thinking about Halloween and Christmas patterns. Many of you forget about Thanksgiving and then kick yourselves later.

Being from the UK Thanksgiving isn’t a thing here. We have the Harvest Festivals instead, although not on the same scale that Americans do Thanksgiving! We tend to be more low key. At harvest time we give thanks for the food that we have and make donations to the local food banks, the elderly or neighbours in need if we can.

Lots of the patterns that are listed below are suitable for both events, which fall at roughly the same time of year.

 

 

A little bit of everything

You will see that our round up contains a little bit of everything for you! Pumpkin patterns seems to be quite popular at this time of year, so I have included a few of those.

And something that Joey from Jo’s Crafty Hook suggested – using a rectangular wrap as a table runner! I am sat here wondering why on earth I had not thought of that!!

 

How it works…

This one is easy – just scroll down the list of patterns below – if you see one you like click on the picture and it will take you either to the designer’s blog post or their shop to grab the pattern! Under each pic I have identified whether they are free or paid and if paid how much they cost. Dont forget to read that as one of the designers has given me a special coupon code just for you!!

 

Shall we dive right into the Thanksgiving Patterns Round up?

 

Here at Sunflower we do have a couple of patterns that you may like for your thanksgiving table:

1. Stuffed Pumpkins

stuffed pumpkins – paid £3.60 on Etsy

 

2. Pumpkin placemat

Before I add the photo of this one, it was a pattern originally designed for halloween, but someone in the CAL left off the face and just made it a plain pumpkin and it looks fabulous! This one was turned into a Pumpkin pillow! So if you want to work this one then just substitute the black for orange in the instructions. You can find the free pattern on the blog here. (I cannot link both images to the post for this one so you will need to click the blue writing!)
