I was messing around trying to make up a snowflake pattern because I was bored with with the snowflake patterns that I had and I couldn't get online because my DH was hogging the ethernet cable.
I thought to myself that making a snowflake shouldn't be so very hard to do. Well, I came up with this instead!
I did end up making a full-size snowflake also, but it is for a swap on another board, so I will be sharing the pattern for that later, after the person that I am sending it to recieves it :)

Size 7/1.65 mm Steel hook
2 Earwires for earrings or 1 jumpring for pendant (the kind with the single split in it)

YO-Yarn Over
ch-chain
sl st-slip stitch
st-stitch


Special Stitches:
Extended Double Cluster (cluster):
YO, insert hook into st indicated, YO, pull through 1 loop on hook (chain made), YO, pull through 2 loops on hook, [YO, instert hook into the chain at bottom of first stitch , YO, pull through 2 loops on hook] repeat once more (4 loops on hook). YO, pull through all 4 loops.
Picot:

Snowflake: (make 2 for earrings)
Ch 4, [YO, insert hook into back loop of 3rd ch from hook, YO, pull through 2 loops] repeat once (3 loops on hook), YO, pull through all 3 loops (beginning cluster made).

Ch 1, Picot, ch 1 once more, join in top of beginning cluster, finish off (6 clusters, 6 picots, 12 ch)

Stiffen if desired
Attach earwires or jumpring to any picot.


edit: coolhockeymom had a wonderful idea for these snowflakes, make festive stitch markers out of them! use either the kidney earwires or the large lobsterclaw clasps attached to the jumpring to put on your crochet stitches!!! :hook
Thank you coolhockeymom for your awesome idea!!!

The pattern for the snowflake that inspired these earrings is now posted in my Livejournal, see link in my siggie...

*Sorry that the picture is a little fuzzy, I tried a few times, but this is the best I could get.

Thank you ladies :D I hope that it is understandable :)

btw, I just noticed that I had a little error in the instructions.
At the end, I had Picot once more... and it should be ch 1, picot, ch 1 once more...
I'm sure that many of you would have caught it though :hook


I fixed it in the first post too.

Was going back through the pattern list and found these. WOW! I forgot about these. My computer crashed about 3 times last year, so I ended up losing all my patterns. Love these earrings. Going to make some for my tree for next year also.
