We have a very exciting even happening in York this festive season. For the first time we are having a living advent calendar. 24 of York's independent shops and eatery's are revealing a special window display each day of advent.

The lovely York makery have day 17 and they have asked for donations of snowflakes in any craft to create their festive masterpiece.

With this in mind I thought I would publish my own snowflake crochet pattern free of charge. This is for any use but I'm sure The York Makery would be very grateful if you send some snowflakes their way :)

For these snowflakes I've used the James C brett Noodles in white with a 4.5mm hook. Its a chunky and gives a lovely finish.

It will work well in any other yarn but drop down to a 3.5mm hook if you use DK weight yarn.
