Crochet Snowflake

Hello everyone!!  Winter in Florida is such a beautiful time of year.  It’s still warm outside… so warm that it is still flip-flop weather!  So I like to decorate with snowflakes to remind myself that it really is winter!!  Here is a snowflake pattern that I created and I’m excited to share with you.  I like to use white crochet cotton or the pearl sparkle crochet cotton!
