Learn how to create this mini crystal snowflake using a crochet hook, crystals and S-Lon thread. Designed by Dorothy Wood.

Step 1


  • Ch – chain
  • Slst – slip stitch
  • Dc – double crochet
  • single crochet Tr – treble
  • double crochet YOH – yarn over hook

Step 2

Pick up the crystals and then the seed beads directly onto the cord – you don’t need a needle, just cut the cord at an angle. (You blast the end of the cord with a steam iron then leave to cool to firm it up) Make a slipknot about 10 cm from the end of the cord.
