Snowflakes in Afternoon Cotton

Is it cold and frosty where you are today? It has been VERY cold around here this week. Fortunately we haven’t had snow outside. But, we do have snow inside with this beautiful crochet snowflake project. The snowflake pattern is called First Frost, and it is made using Premier® Yarns Afternoon Cotton®.



Afternoon Cotton is a #3 light weight 100% mercerized cotton that comes in both solids and multi-colors. It is perfect for projects like this one, as well as for fashion projects, including our t-shirt dresses. One skein of yarn will make several snowflakes.

To make the First Frost snowflake, you will need one skein of Afternoon Cotton, which will make several snowflakes, a US size F-5 crochet hook, tapestry needle, and a stiffening agent if you want to starch your snowflake. Let’s see how it’s done.
