It's snowing crochet!
Crochet Snowflakes by ~audreydc1983 on deviantART
These were all worked from the book:
201 Crochet Motifs, Blocks Patterns and Ideas
by Melody Griffiths
I used white yarn with an additional silvery white metallic thread, and various hooks (depending on the motif) to get the size I wanted. I added a gold metallic yarn loop later, so that these snowflake gifts can be used as ornaments for the holiday season.
I saturated them with starch, let them get dry and crisp, attached the loop, and sent them on to their new homes.
