A sleepless night of experimenting with hook and thread produced these snowflakes. They are not extremely pretty, but at least they are my own.
I used crochet thread number ten as well as size ten crochet hook. The snowflakes came out four and a half inches in diameter.
The symbol chart is below, I sketched it and my mom has tested it.
Note: Slip stitches are not shown on the chart, but you will need to use them:
• joining chain 5 into a ring
• at the end of each round (for joining the round)
• starting with round 2, at the beginning of each round (so you can start each new round from the space of chain 2)
• in the last round for making picots
I hope this makes sense and the chart will be of use to you.
