    I made one of these yesterday using coral instead of white. I’m really pleased with it!

      It came out great!

    Round 7 needs 14 stitches to complete. I used one twice for the end sc2tog. The pattern would need to be changed to include 14 stitches on Round 6 to be accurate. Otherwise it is a very pretty pattern.

      Hi Cherie 🙂 I went over the last two rounds and double checked the calculations. I believe they are correct as is. Each repeat for Round 7 is worked over 13 sts, which is exactly what we have from the double crochet groupings in Round 6.

      I think I know where the confusion came in. The single crochet two together stitches are worked over the last two stitches in the 13 Double crochet group. My guess is that you put the single crochet two together in one stitch only.

    In round 6, how do you get from one group of 13 double crochets to the next? It doesn’t look like you slip stitched your way to the next chain 6 space so how did you get there in order to do the next group of 13 double crochets? Sorry, this isn’t self explanatory to me

    • Kara November 27, 2014 at 9:08 pm #

      Just start working the next group of double crochets into the next chain space, no need to slip stitch over 🙂

    Gorgeous! I made these in red and green for Christmas gifts and they look like poinsettias!

    • Kara December 7, 2016 at 10:16 am #

      Great idea!

    I have made many snowflakes for my tree but none as pretty as this. Really love it and it is so easy to make.
