Lacy Snowflake Ring Ornament

Lacy Snowflake is the first up in my "Ringing in Christmas" Ornament Series.  All the ornaments in the series will be worked by crocheting around a 2" plastic ring, and I will be releasing one pattern each week.  As of now, I'm not sure how many there will be as I'm still working on some of them. So I'll keep it going until my inspiration dries up, or Christmas gets here, whichever comes first.  :)

Lacy Snowflake Ring Ornament
Materials Needed:
Caron Simply Soft Worsted Weight Yarn - White
Size G (4.25mm) Crochet Hook
2" Plastic Ring

ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet

mp = make picot
sk = skip
st = stitch

Pattern Note for Round 3: To make picot (mp): Ch 2, sl st in 2nd ch from hook.
Round 3) Ch 1, sc in same st, sk next 2 sts, (dc, mp, dc, mp, dc, mp, dc, mp, dc) in next st (1st snowflake point made), sk next 2 sts, *sc in next st, sk next 2 sts, (dc, mp, dc, mp, dc, mp, dc, mp, dc) in next st, sk next 2 sts*, repeat from * to * around, join with a sl st to beg sc. End off, weave in ends. Each snowflake point will contain 5 dc's and 4 picots.  (6 snowflake points, 6 sc)

It looks pretty in blue too!

Hi there. I love this project and would like to feature it on my blog's Craft Friday (www.dirtyhooker.org). It's not a porn site, despite the name (hooker = crochet). I was wondering if you'd mind if I used your picture of the project, with a link back to your site. Thanks!

Hi Monica,
I couldn't reply to your email because you are set as a no-reply blogger, but if you read this, yes, you sure can link to this post. :)

I just love your patterns. I just started teaching myself to crochet via youtube and it's so nice to find cute but simple patterns a beginner can follow. One question. How can i convert any of these to a smaller ring if I wanted to make smaller ornaments?

Cathy Champion said...

Instead of buying 2" rings, I use drapery rings. They already have a hole on them inwhich to add an ornament hook, ribbon or other type of hanger. Plus, if you go to the thrift store, they are really cheap! I just purchased a bag of 25 for a quarter!

Christy said...

Love all your 'ring' ornaments! This one is pretty, too!!!

Bridget Leanne said...

I love all of your circle ornaments! I'm trying to rework them without having to use the 2" circles in the middle for something a little smaller. Have you or any of your readers tried these with just magic circles in the middle? I'm having trouble get the stitch count right.

Cathy Brooks said...

I love this design. I posted it to Pinterest under my board crocheted jewelry.
I plan on making earrings from it.
Thank you!

I cut out a circle from cardboard and it worked beautifully.

Olivia Lauder said...

For some reason I'm really struggling with Round 3. I keep ending up with too many points. Can anyone advise me where I'm going wrong? Thanks

Laura Mokma said...

I love these patterns! They're easy and pretty too. Please keep creating them :)

Kate said...

I'm going to make the snowflakes this evening - can't wait!!! Thank you for the pattern.

So, like a crazy person (who didn't want to go to the store to buy what I didn't have on hand), I used 1/2" rounds, a C (2-2.75mm) hook, and size 10 thread. AND IT's ADORABLE!! Thank you for the pattern :D

Tianna said...

@Olivia Lauder - Make sure you note that there is a "sk 2, sc, sk 2" in between the snowflake points! I almost missed it myself :)

Daria said...

So pretty!
Thank you.

Mirena Geraki said...

Thanks for this pattern! Finally found something to do with all these rings I have leftovers from another project!

Hi Doni,I just found youg blog. I've been looking for an easy snowflake pattern for so long. So pretty, im getting ready to make lots of these. I don't have the rings but i have lots of white yarn. I'll find something else to use for the rings. Thanks for sharing your pattern

Milk jug rings also work perfectly for this project. Keeps the environment a little cleaner in the process.
