woohoo!! I mastered it :) Are you guys ready for snowflake mania?
I created these guys by following Lucys at Attic 24 Snowflake Pattern! It took several attempts and a few cups of tea for me to master it but I stuck with it and I am so glad I did.. as you can see I havent stopped!! Mine look different to Lucys... I didnt stretch my wool that much.. I might start...
I also reccomend getting a Spray Starch as it makes the snowflakes a little more solid as they will be curled up etc when you finish it. Dont worry if you follow the pattern and it doesnt look exactly like those shown.. I had to put pins in the pointy bits to stretch out.. and sprayed with Dylon starch, covered with a tea towel and ironed. I plan to make a garland so i wanted them more solid for hanging!
