Zeta Snowflake – Free Pattern

Do you need a quick and easy holiday/winter gift idea? You’ve come to the right place.

My Zeta Snowflake is at least 4 different projects within the one design. Depending on the size yarn that you pick you can have a coaster, a holiday tree ornament, a keychain, or a set of earrings.

I hope you enjoy this snowflake as much as I do. Below you can find all the details and supplies you’ll need to make some for yourself, or friends and family.

Pattern Notes

A stitch count has been provided at the end of each round.

By switching the yarn and hook size, you can make earrings and/or ornaments. (Size 10 crochet thread and a 1.5mm hook; #3 light weight yarn and a H hook; #2 sport weight yarn and E hook)

Blocking isn’t necessary for the coasters but advised. To get an ornament or earrings to look their best, you will need to block the finished items using Aleene’s Stiffen Quik or a similar product.

The Yarn

To make the coasters, you will need 100% cotton worsted weight yarn and a 5.50mm crochet hook. For the yarn, I used Lily’s Sugar ‘N Cream, but you could your own favorites from your local craft store.

To make the ornament, you will need a sport weight yarn and 2.75mm crochet hook. I used Premier’s Cotton Fair available at Michael’s Arts & Crafts.

To make the earrings, you will need size 10 crochet thread and a 1.5mm hook. I used Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread, available at Michael’s Arts & Crafts.
