Tiny Snowflakes: a needlework chart for any craft

When I was looking at my 2015 needlework chart again, I saw an easy way to modify it to make it look like tiny snowflakes. Winter is almost here, and so I thought it was a good time to share it with you.

This is one of the kind of pattern that I’m sure someone else must have come up with already, but it’s still worth sharing because I don’t remember actually seeing it before, and maybe you haven’t either.

Chart showing how to work Tiny Snowflakes needlework by means of dark and light squares. Written instructions are included in blog post.

  • Tiny Snowflakes has a repeat of 12 + 1 columns and 10 rows.
  • In the written instructions, color A is the light squares above, and color B is the dark.
  • The written instructions below are formatted for stranded knitting, but it is my hope that they could be translated into instructions for other crafts. For instance, if working filet crochet, 1A could be one open square and 2B could be two filled-in squares.
  • Designers, please feel free to use this in your patterns (no need to ask). I’d like credit but won’t be offended if people don’t give it.
  • My blog posts and free stitch patterns are supported by subscriptions on Patreon or donations to my Paypal tip jar in the sidebar. If you appreciate my work, please consider helping out. Thanks!
