I started to crochet some garlands. I have already finished one for my mum, she was very happy about it. {My mum is a very creative lady, she doesn't crochet, she used to knit, but nowadays her main weapon is the glue gun. She makes beautiful decorations for the home.} 

I don't thread crochet, the thinest yarn I use is mercerized cotton and E hook for health reasons: I crochet mostly at nights and I would like to prevent my eyes  from getting worse. After works sometimes my eyes are just too tired to focus on thin objects... 

So I made these pretty snowflakes from Catania and simply blocked them (wet blocking): 

The bigger snowflake:
{It differs from the pattern a bit...}
The smaller one:

The patterns for the bigger and smaller snowflakes see here and hereBoth were super easy to follow! Addiction is guaranteed :) 

I used some of them for decorating my Christmas plate:

I completed a dozen of my simple crochet tree! With a few one we suprised our nieces, they placed their trees to the window. But I keep on making these cuties until I have green leftover yarns :)

Wish you merry Christmas crocheting!

  1. What a good idea to put the snowflakes on a plate like a doily, it looks lovely!
