Happy Happy! A Free Crochet Snowflake Coaster
With the count down to Christmas underway, there’s plenty on the to-do list. And while you may have more to do than time, come visit us each week with new featured Christmas products and possibly save a little time and get some shopping for your loved ones, or yourself, checked off your holiday list!
From November 13th to December 11th, two Makers will be featuring their best Christmas Products and sharing them with you! Not sure you follow everyone? That’s okay! Follow Mad Mad Makers on Facebook, Twitter or G+. Or you can check out the bottom of this post to see who’s scheduled when and their links when they do share their products.
Yay! It’s that time again, a Mad Mad Makers Blog Hop! Have you visited any of the other blog on the hop yet? There are links down at the bottom of this post so you can do that. Now that it’s finally getting cold where I live, I’m trying to get into the Winter spirit. On Tuesday I released a fun bonnet (the Willow), which will be great for the Winter, and on Monday I released the Josephine Stockings (on sale for $1.99 right now). So, I’m trying! But until recently it wasn’t really cold so I was still in warmer weather mode, but today I bring you snowflakes!
This pattern is a bit like my Snowflakes Necklace pattern, I updated it, thought, to give the flakes bigger points and a larger body. While I was working this pattern up I did notice how cute it would be as a table runner (just connecting the ch 4 spaces on row 5 and doing row 6 after you’ve made the design the size you want). Either way, I hope you enjoy a very quick and cute snowflake pattern by me! Happy Happy!

So happy to have found your blog from GrammyZ. Love your snowflake coasters, now onto the rest of the hop!! Tfs
The snowflake coaster is lovely. I was wondering if you could tell me where the repeat asterisks should be in Row 5 – it says to repeat from * to *, but there are no other asterisks in step 5.
Thanks, and thanks for sharing the pattern.
Oops! Sorry about that. I updated the pattern above to include the * and * for the repeat for row 5. 🙂
Thanks for the update! 🙂
