This "simple" style is one of four crocheted snowflake patterns. Once you know how to make the basic shape, you can crochet a flurry in all shapes and sizes.

Updated January 12, 2019

This pattern is one of four varieties of crocheted snowflakes, which uses the single-crochet stitch in four rounds and calls for counting stitches. And if you're a beginner, learn how to crochet before you start.

Counting Stitches

As you follow the directions, the loop on the hook does not count as a stitch. The stitch just below it should be the first in your reckoning.


sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
ch = chain
rnd = round

Slip Stitch (sl st)

The sl st is used to join a stitch that was just worked with another one. Insert the hook into a stitch that you want to join with another; catch the yarn, and draw it through all the loops on the hook.


What you need


How to do it

Step 1

Ch 12; join with sl st to form the foundation ring.

Step 2

Rnd 1: ch 2 (counts as first sc), 17 sc into ring, join with sl st (18 total).

Step 3

Rnd 2: ch 1, *sc in next sc, ch 16, skip next 2 sc.* Repeat from * to * 5 times more; join with sl st.

Step 4

Rnd 3: *sc in each of next 8 ch's (through one loop only), ch 18, sl st in 12th ch from hook.

Step 5

Ch 12, sl st in 13th ch from hook (same loop as before).

Step 6

Ch 6, sc in each of next 8 ch's (through one loop only).

Step 7

Skip first sc of previous row.* Repeat from * to * 5 times more; join with sl st. Finish off; weave in ends.
