Get creative and crochet your own Christmas Tree decorations by starting with this absolute gorgeous crochet Julia snowflake.
Julia crochet snowflake is a pretty textured snowflake that is so much fun to make around the holidays. It’s delicate, beautiful and looks so great in different colors, make lots of them in colors that match your holiday colors or in unexpected colors for Christmas gifts.
The best part of this snowflake is that it doesn’t need stiffing and I love that! The texture of this crochet Julia snowflake makes it stiff enough so you wont need to try all these techniques witch might work or not. By the way, what do you use for stiffing? Please share you tricks with me I might need it in the future!
Here is a photo with my boy thinking if he should kill the tree or not! First time when I put up the tree in the first 10 minutes he knocked it down three times! It was such a chaos! He was attacking the tree, playing with the ornaments, chewing the tree lights, he was in full ferocious feline mood! It was a few funny days: he knocking down the tree and me putting up again and again. In time he got used with it and now he just sits and stares at it!
For the crochet Julia snowflake you will need:
For this project I’ve used this yarn (5 g for each snowflake) and a 1.75 mm hook:
This mercerised cotton is perfect for this project.
For my snowflakes I’ve used these colors:
If you prefer a yarn that is not mercerised, this cotton is perfect for this project. The mercerisation process gives cotton a fantastic sheen and makes it even more durable, but this one looks great too.
