Crochet Snowflake Round Motif
Many things can be made using this pattern: garlands, Christmas wreaths, Christmas trees, coasters, earrings, bracelets, necklaces… You can join motifs as you go or sew them together at the end. This round snowflake motif is one of my upcycling projects that uses plastic bottles rings, an original idea that I had years ago. Any other 33 mm plastic ring can be used. The pattern can be adapted to other ring sizes and other yarns or threads. The mini snowflakes can be used separately. The pattern contains detailed written instructions, photographs and a diagram, as well as the ideas of designs and shapes and the instructions on how to join the motifs.
The idea of « Nature aux fils » came from a distant childhood memory of a 3D flower knitted, I think, on a skirt's strap by my talented grandma for me. Inspired by nature, I want my crochet flowers and other creations as realistic as possible but I don't want to copy nature and reproduce the whole flowers because I know that I'll never do better, so I introduce them into my pieces of jewellery.
The patterns that I publish here are unique and were designed by me with great care and passion. Today I want to share my secrets with you. My technique is simple but new and original, it permits you to obtain a needed shape rather easily. I also use some unusual materials that everyone can have at home but doesn't think to use.
Welcome to my universe!
