Racket patterned snowflakes crocheted specially for the New Year will decorate your house better than paper garlands you can buy at a store. If you know how to read the schemes, know how to make a chain of chain stitches and are able to differentiate between a double crochet and picot, then you’ll really enjoy crocheting snowflakes.
Masterclass On Crocheting A Snowflake
The middle part of the flake is the first to be crocheted. This can be done in two ways:
- we may make a chain of several chain stitches and connect it in a circle. Then, we go on crocheting.
- we may wrap a thread around a finger and form a circle out of it. Then, we crochet it with single crochet.
We use the second way of crocheting the middle of a New Year snowflake. Make 5 chain stitches and connect them in a circle. Crochet a connective crochet and 3 chain stitches of the first row.
Once again, we need to make a connective crochet and 3 chain stitches connecting the arc with a connective crochet.
You need to have 6 such like arcs. Finish the row with a connective crochet.
We crochet the first arc: 1 single crochet, 3 chain stitches, 2 single crochets.
We crochet the second and the third arc the same way: 2 single crochets, 3 chain stitches, 2 single crochets.
We repeat it 3 times. This is, actually, where we can finish our masterclass for beginners. We already have a small racket patterned snowflake. However, we may try crocheting it more and making it bigger.
Start the 3rd row with a connective crochet. Then, repeat the pattern: 3 chain stitches, 1 single crochet, 5 chain stitches, 1 single crochet, 3 chain stitches, 1 single crochet, 2 chain stitches.
Repeat the pattern 5 more times.
Now we have a racket patterned crocheted snowflake that you may stiffen with starch and hang on your tree.
