Seasons Greetings!! I hope your holiday season is wonderfully merry and bright so far!! Today I am going to show you how I made my own snowflake garland. I am super excited about this project because I have been crocheting snowflakes for many years now but this is the first time that I have created my own snowflake pattern! In my video I will show you how I link the snowflakes with a chain and then stiffen the snowflakes so that they hang nicely on the garland.
You can also watch the instructional video for the snowflake garland here.
For this pattern you will need:
garbage bag (or something else to protect your working surface)
