View Full Version : FO: Knitted Snowflakes!
12-02-2008, 11:19 PM
I was in Michael's last week and picked up an awesome little booklet on Knitted Snowflakes by Margaret Heathman. I got right to work and within the past few days I've made three of the eight patterns. I only have pictures of two of them because I gave the first one away already, lol! The one snowflake without the eyelets is actually supposed to be covered in eyelets also, I realized about halfway through the project that I had done the yarn overs incorrectly. Instead of fixing it I just kept doing them wrong so it wouldn't look all funky. O well, it's still pretty!

I love the sparkle you put in the second one. Both look great!

Aren't these fun? I made a few in October, but haven't starched them yet. Yours look wonderful!

They were so much fun to make! And surprisingly quick to knit too. Starching is fun too.

:inlove: Very pretty!! Isn't that a great book?
I love it, I made them last year and found a crochet thread that had like glitter thread with it or something like that...the lights really sparkled off of them.

Beautiful!! I've tried crocheting snowflakes, but not knitting them. May have to give that a try!

These are so cool! How big are they?

I like the one without holes. Did you use the same yarn on both of them? The second one looks sparkly, which is just perfect for snow. :cheering:

How beautiful! I have had that booklet for a couple of years but haven't done anything with it. Seeing yours has given me the motivation to try it. Thank your for posting the pictures as the samples in the booklet don't do the projects justice. You did a wonderful job!

Those are so pretty! :heart:

Those are so pretty! I bought that book a few years ago, but I had trouble making anything out of it. You've inspired me to go dig it out and try again. Great job!

Wow! those are *beautiful*!!

Thanks!! I used size 3 dp needles with some generic white yarn I had lying around. They both are about 7 inches from tip to tip.

I am trying to make some of these snowflakes and I just can't do it. I can't keep the stitches straight on the dpns. How on earth did you get them to work out? If you have any secrets, please share, because soon, the yarn and the needles are going out the window. :teehee:

oh jeeze, i'm not sure. The only time I really have any trouble with possible twisting is when first joining the round. The book has a suggestion that after casting on and distributing the stitches to lay your work out flat on a table to make sure everything is facing the same direction, and then join the first stitch. After the first few rounds the stitches should cooperate and stay in the right position. I'm sorry, that's probably not much help
