Crocheted Snowflakes & Star Project

“Frosty windows, quiet snowflakes.”

Sprinkle a flurry of these soft little confections on your tree and around your house; use them to decorate packages or as a small gift tucked in a card. Whether single or in garlands, they will brighten any day!

In Isager Spinni Wool 1, a rustic natural lace-weight wool from Denmark, these delicate creations will hold their shape year after year. Quick and perfect for gifting, each skein should yield approximately 50 snowflakes (a little blizzard!) in your choice of three styles - two snowflakes and a star. For a snowy, starry treat!
