Snowflake Ornaments 2016

Each Christmas I give my granddaughters hand-crocheted snowflakes to hang on their Christmas trees.  These snowflakes have their initials and the year embroidered on them.  I started this tradition in 2013, and at least one year I made double the snowflakes, with the plan being that eventually they will have two snowflakes for every year from birth to 18 years old.

The last couple of years I have gotten smart and crocheted the snowflakes in late December, early January for the coming year, while Christmas is on my brain.  It has saved some last minute scrambling, that’s for sure!

This year I chose the Snoqualmie Snowflake pattern from Snowcatcher.net, where I have found many beautiful snowflake patterns.

I wonder what the 2017 snowflakes will look like?

  1. What a beautiful tradition! And you are so clever to finish them in advance.
