Celtic Snowflake Pattern

This Celtic Snowflake Pattern is the newest pattern in my Etsy Shop. I love how it turned out and decided to call it the “Celtic Flower Snowflake“. The unique flower Celtic Knot is easily created with one crocheted cord and then I added another thin silver cord that is woven in between the “petals”. Lastly, the woven knot is edged with 2 rounds of simple & lacy crochet stitches.

Celtic Flower Snowflake

This Celtic Flower Snowflake uses a small amount of Size 10 cotton crochet thread and an even smaller amount of some silver metallic embroidery thread. I love how the white and silver look together. I also think that you could make this Celtic snowflake pattern in a variety of colors for different looks.

Stitches you Need to Know for the Celtic Snowflake Pattern

This Celtic Snowflake Pattern uses only the basic crochet stitches. For this project you would need to know how to do: chain, slip stitch, and single crochet – that’s it! The thread is very thin so that does take some getting used to. I recommend using the Clover crochet hooks (they have a silicone handle that helps your hand to feel its best while crocheting with the thin thread) and a good light (or bright sunlight shining in through a window). These things help my snowflake turn out the best and they help me to enjoy the process the most!

Make the Celtic Snowflake Pattern Today!

If you have worked with thread before, then you definitely could make this snowflake in an afternoon. I usually work on my snowflake projects in stages – one day I make the cords and sometimes wet block them overnight, the next day I weave the knots and then the day after that I add the edging stitches and stiffen the snowflake. It’s so fun to have your own little “reveal” once the stiffener has dried!

Remember, you can purchase this pattern here in my Etsy Shop – hurry, it’s on sale for the next few days only!
