Snowflake Monday

I really like last week's Mojo II Snowflake, but I thought it would be prettier with a different center. I have been putting solid centers in snowflakes that will be embellished with holiday buttons. I played around with the center to come up with today's variation on the theme. I also had time to make a second prototype to show a different way to pin the spokes.

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!

Finished Size: 7.5 inches from point to point
