More Snowflakes in a Hurry

Dec 20, 2011

A couple of weeks ago I gave you a recipe for a snowflake in a hurry. Really, you can be done in while you take just a couple sips of latte.

These snowflakes can be done pretty darn fast. Probably in a half a latte's time.

All of these snowflakes are based on motifs from the Winter 2011 issue of Interweave Crochet. If you're a subscriber, you probably already have this. If you're waiting for it to hit the newsstand, this will have to be a January project (the issue goes to newsstand Dec. 30.) You can order a print copy (they're available in the Interweave store now). Or you can download a digital version right this very minute. Then you can spend January making one of the fabulous projects (I'll be making the Aslan Shrug next week!)

These little snowflakes were very eager to have their pictures taken and didn't want to stop to primp. But I'll give them a little smoothing out with a blast of steam before they get attached to presents.

Do you have quick crochet gifts to share? Do tell.

Happy holiday crocheting!
