Snowflake #004 >>> Vlocka #004

My snowflake #004 was one of my first ones, I ever made. At that time I didn't think about how many "sides" snowflake has. I saw other crocheted snowflakes that had different number of "sides". Later on, I got this book about  snowflakes for my inspiration on crocheting different shapes, and I realized that snowflakes are only six sided due to the water molecules and how they attach themselves to each other. The shape of each snowflake is determined by temperature and by humidity. The most intricate snowflakes come from very cold environment (high clouds). On the other hand plate like looking snowflakes come from low clouds, where it is not so cold.

Moje Vlocka #004 byla jedna z prvnich vlocek, ktere jsem uhackovala. V te dobe jsem jeste nepremyslela o tom kolik stran kazda vlocka doopravdy ma. Vlocky, ktere jsem si vyhledala na netu mely kazda ruzny pocet stran. Jednou dne se mi do ruky dostala tato kniha, kterou jsem se chtela inspirovat k hackovani ruznych vlocek. Pri prohlizeni knihy jsem si uvedomeila, ze kazda vlocka ma puze 6 stran z duvodu molekularnihgo usporadani vody (H2O). Pricemz vlhkost a teplota (v tomto pripade zima) vzduchu ovlivnuje, jak vlocka bude vypadat. Cim studenejsi vzduch tim slozitejsi tvary vlocek.

Zde je postup na Vlocku # 004:

1. Zacneme na 8 ocek.
