Snowflakes

Snowflakes

Happy December! This time of the year always seems to fly by, with all of the festivities and gatherings. I think it is nice to be able to spend some quiet time with a new tatting project. It started snowing in the mountains here in Washington, and as a way to celebrate the season, I designed a few snowflake patterns. They are fairly simple patterns, and can be used as ornaments. The pattern is divided into the six arms/dendrites of the snowflake. I am sharing them for free below, and hope you enjoy tatting them!
