Fast Easy Snowflake No 5

I love to crochet snowflakes. This snowflake has five rows therefore it is quick - and easy even for advanced beginners.

I give them out as gifts to my friends and family. Place them on a long string - they make a nice hanging for any window.

Make few of them for your holidays - as a decoration on your christmas tree, or make several snowflakes to place on dinner tables - when having a feast with friends, of for the winter wedding.

BTW - did you know that I made a video and you could crochet this snowflake along with me? CLICK HERE
