Another quick Christmas Decoration Pattern I wanted to blog.  If you can make a basic granny square, you can make this in minutes. I have included photos of the rounds as a guide (with my shadow making a guest appearance) but it is basically a granny hexagon with a modification in the final round.

Round 1:  Chain 7, slip stitch into first chain to make a ring

Round 2: Chain 3 (counts as a treble throughout pattern), 2 trebles into ring, chain 3, *3 trebles into ring, chain 3** Repeat *-** 5 times.  Slip stitch into top of 3 chain which began the round. (6 groups of three trebles)

Round 2 complete

Round 3:  Slip stich into first 3 chain space of previous round, chain 3, 2 trebles into the same chain space from previous round, chain 3, 3 trebles into same chain space, chain 1, *3 trebles, 3 chain, 3 trebles in next 3 chain space, chain 1** Repeat *-** 5 times.  Slip stitich into top of 3 chain which began the round. (12 groups of three trebles)

Round 3 complete

Round 4: Slip stitch into first 3 chain space of the previous round, chain 3, 3 trebles into the same chain space from previous round, chain 3 and join into 3rd chain from the hook to create picot, 3 trebles into same chain space from previous round, chain 1. Slip stitch in next 1 chain space from previous round.  Chain 1. *4 trebles into next 3 chain space, chain 3 and join with a slip stitich into 3rd chain from the hook to create picot, 3 trebles into same chain space from previous round, chain 1.  Slip stitch in next 1 chain space from previous round.  Chain 1.**  Repeat from *-** 5 times, .  Join with slip stitch into top of 3 chain which began the round.

Round 4 complete and hanging loop added

Finishing:  If you would like to create a hanging loop for your snowflake, slip sitich into 3rd treble of the first point from round 4, chain 25 and join with slip sitich into 5th treble from round 4.  Fasten off.  Pull picots to create sharp edges to the snowflake points.
