Magic Moment Snowflake


This model is made with size 40 Lavender Orchid HDT from the Yarnplayer. It measures up to 10.5cm (4.25in) across. If made with size 20, it may be large enough to be considered as a small doily.


The Chart


The pattern (uses two shuttles)

R(7-2-7), reverse work (RW).
(#)C(6-6-6-6), RW.
R(7+2-7), join to last picot of previous ring. Do not reverse, DNR.
Switch Shuttle (SS), C(6), RW.
R(4+4-4-4), join to last picot of previous long chain. DNR
SS, C(4), DNR.
(*)SS, R(4+4-4-4), join to last picot of previous ring, DNR.
Repeat from (*) FIVE times more until there are seven rings altogether. RW
C(6), DNR.
SS, R(7+2-7), join to the picot of the adjacent ring. RW.
C(6+6-6-6), join to the last ring of the seven-rings set. RW
R(7+2+7), 1st join to the picot of previous ring, 2nd join to the picot of the first ring. DNR.
SS, C(3-3-3-3), DNR (**)
SS, R(6-4-6), DNR.
SS, C(3-3-3-3), DNR

SS and repeat from the beginning. For the chain in step (#), replace the picots with joins to opposite chain.

Continue with the pattern until (**). For the next step, make the ring R(6+4-6), joining to the first ring of the centre, followed by the chain C(3-3-3-3).

    1. Hi IvyRose,
      SS means 'switch shuttle'.
      In a two-shuttles patterns, there are parts where you need change your working shuttle, and in my patterns this is indicated with 'SS'
