Here is my Snowflakes Throw. It is a free pattern by Tammy Hildebrand at Red Heart. If anyone is thinking of making it get an extra skein of the Shaded Dusk (blue multi). I always have yarn leftover but not on this one, ran out with 6 motifs to make :(. A side note: if you know how Krochet Krystal's Daisy square works, use that technique and you wont have as many ends to weave in at the end. The afghan finished 45" x 52 1/2".

Enjoy the pictures.

I thought I would post here, some of my notes on the joining of these motifs.

#1: When joining the first 2 motifs you join 3 points only. The first row will be the same for each motif... 3 points.
#2: The next row will be the small motifs and they will join onto 5 points each.
#3: The next row of large motifs; the first one of the row will join onto 5 points and all the rest of the row will join onto 9 points.
Repeat the joining patterns #2 and #3 until the afghan is complete.

Did you get an extra skein of yarn? You need 1 more than the pattern calls for... 6 total.


I have close ups of the afghan if you want to look at the joins.

I hope this has been helpful.

Just don't let the cat help, it will be more interesting, but will take a lot longer. :D

Oh you did a good job on that. Did you have trouble joining it together?
I have been kind of stumped on the first two squares, so I have put it aside for now.

The editors did a rather poor job on the instructions at that point. If you need some help PM me and I will see what I can do to explain it better. I had to talk my sister through it too. :D

Lovely! I just saw this the other night while I was browsing around the free patterns looking for something interesting to start. I would have started it, too, but it calls for 5 skeins of Red Heart Shaded Dusk and, while I happen to HAVE 5 skeins of it in my stash, when I read the dimensions I decided that I wanted it bigger, so I'm going to need more Shaded Dusk. I'm not even sure RH still MAKES Shaded Dusk, because I got a new Herschnerr's catalog the other day, and they claim to carry ALL of the RH shades available, and Shaded Dusk wasn't listed. I guess I'll try to find a couple more skeins on Ebay before I start, but I LOVE this afghan, it's GORGEOUS, so it is DEFINITELY on my WIM list! You did a beautiful job on it! :clap

Oh, it's beautiful! I'm working on that one now for DD. She chose Grape for the snowflakes, with Peacock Ombre. I'm using ILTY. It is nice to work with. I just got started so I have about 14 motifs done up through row 5. They make up quickly. I'm so glad to see your finished throw!
