    Got here through craftster.com, great pattern, i really appreciate the given variation of 5 different crochet snowflakes, makes for great christmas tree decoration :)

    I’m sorry — please ignore my query about the puff stitch. I found instructions for that and a bobble & popcorn stitch by noodling around on this very website. Now I’m ready to start round #3 on #2 snowflake. Thank you anyway — love these patterns!

    Hiya are these patterns for snowflakes using UK or US abbreviation terms? I’m fairly new to crochet and don’t want to get it wrong !

    How do you stiffen these when completed? I made some last year and followed the directions given and for some reason they looked dirty when they dried, not the bright white of the thread used.
