I wanted to make different colored snowflakes. I made a green one, and I got an idea on how to make the snowflakes look like poinsettias.
This pattern is modified from the Crochet Snowflake pattern I posted on Thursday.
Follow Rounds 1-4 of the Snowflake Pattern.
From here on, I crocheted on the posts of Round 2. I am using a red yarn so what I am doing will be visible.
First, single crochet in the post below last stitch in Round 4. I used the post that was the easiest to find.
Now you will want to follow the Round 5 pattern to get the small pointy petals.
Double crochet in the next post to the left.
Chain 3 again and make the point with a slip stitch to the first stitch in the chain.
Double crochet again in the next post to the left.
Chain 3 again.
Single crochet in the next 2 posts, and do the pattern again 5 more times.
I didn't do 2 single crochet in this picture, but it is needed for the spacing. Make sure there are 2 single crochet before chaining the next petal!
Here is the completed petals. You should have 6.
From here you can continue the round 5 in the white section of the poinsettia.
Here is the look of the completed poinsettia. I decided to finish Round 5 in white.
Here is the poinsettia in red. I actually preferred the white and red mix.
Then all you do is make a green snowflake...
and crochet the two together with a slip stitch. Pretty cool, huh? I got really nice lighting on this picture. :)
