Snowflake Monday

Generally speaking, I have been sleeping better. But the last few weeks, shut-eye has been a bit hard to come by again. I recently decided tossing and turning was not a very good use of my time, so I got out of bed and fashioned the fifth snowflake from the pillow I received for Christmas.

You may do whatever you'd like with snowflakes you make from this pattern, but you may not sell or republish the pattern. Thanks, and enjoy!

  1. Another reason I love crochet. It is so portable, and can be done anywhere at any time, especially the thread projects. Very relaxing. Your snowflakes are always so amazing.
