Omega Snowflake – Free Crochet Pattern

I’m a big fan of snowflakes (if you didn’t know already) and since the Zeta Snowflake is so popular I wanted to make another snowflake pattern. I can’t wait to see your finished Omega Snowflake.

My favorite part about my snowflake patterns is that they can be made into so many other items. They work as earrings, ornaments, bunting, keychains, and coaster. All you have to do is change up the hook and yarn.
