Snowflake Crafts to Knit

snowflake knitting patternsIt’s probably all the snow around here lately (on day 6 of being snowed in — hoping to get out tomorrow!) but I’ve been thinking about knitting projects involving snowflakes. I’ll share some non-Christmas patterns here soon, but here are some great ornaments and doily-type snowflakes you still have time to knit to decorate for Christmas.

Norah Gaughan has a pretty snowflake pattern that would be great to decorate a large gift box or even (worked in cotton instead of wool) as a washcloth or dishcloth.

Sharon Winsauer has a stunner of a a snowflake that’s available as a free Ravelry download.

Judy Gibson’s Snowflake Star has the airy quality of a crocheted doily and would be great as an ornament or hanging from a gift bag.

Snowflaked is a pretty pattern from Follow the Star Studio that looks pretty in multiple gauges.

Katie Himmelberg’s snowflake ornament (available as a free download from Knitting Daily) is a pretty little hexagon with crocheted edging, perfect if you want to learn either of those techniques.

Kristin Nicholas has some cute little colorful ornaments with snowflakes stitched on them. These would be great as gift tags, too.

Lion Brand has a cute ball ornament with a snowflake motif, and Frankie Brown has a cute little button-adorned snowflake as part of a knit advent calendar on Ravelry.
