Snowflake Tree Ornament

• size F (3.75 mm) hook
• very small amount of worsted weight yarn (I used I Love This Yarn in Amethyst)

• craft glue (if you're using rhinestones)
• yarn needle

Abbreviations:
• ch = ch
• sc = single crochet
•sl st = slip stitch


Round 1: starting with a magic ring, 12 sc in ring. Sl st to first sc. Pull tail of ring to tighten ring.

Round 2: ch 1, sc in same st, ch 3, sc in next st, * sc in next st, ch 3, sc in next st.* Repeat from * to * around. Sl st to first sc.

Round 3: in each ch 3 sp around: sc, ch 1, sc (ch 6, sl st to 3rd ch from hook, ch 3, sl st to 3rd ch from hook, ch 3, sl st to 3rd ch from hook, sl st to 3rd ch of ch 6) sc, ch 1, sc. Sl st to first sc. Fasten off leaving  long tail to stitch to hat. Weave in yarn tail from ring.

Cut a 6 inch length of yarn and tie to the top of one of the points for a hanger.

If you're using the rhinestones, glue them to the snowflake and allow to dry over night.
