My last blog post showed a quick little crochet snowflake pattern and now I will show you how to alter that snowflake slightly and transform it into a granny square! Make an afghan entirely of snowflakes or use them as filler squares for a winter themed blanket. They would also go together perfectly with my Crochet Snowman Square!
– Worsted Weight Yarn in white and blue. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Aqua.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
Magic Ring Tutorial
SC = Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
Finished square is approx 8 x 8 inches.
Snowflake Square Pattern:
Magic ring, chain 1 and make 8 SC in ring, join
Round 2: chain 3 + DC in the first stitch, *DC + chain 1 + DC in next, repeat from * around, join to second chain in chain 3.
Round 3: slip stitch over to chain space, chain 2 + HDC in space, chain 3, *HDC + chain 1+ HDC in next chain space, chain 3, repeat from * around, join to top of chain 2.
Round 4: slip stitch into to chain 1 space, *chain 4 and slip stitch to join back into same space you started, chain 6, slip stitch into next HDC chain space, repeat from * around, join
Round 5: slip stitch into chain 4 space, *chain 2+ DC + chain 1 + DC + chain 2 and slip stitch to join back to chain 4 space, chain 2, slip stitch to join to middle of chain 6 space, chain 2 and join with slip stitch to next chain 4 space, repeat from * around. Join, fasten off and weave in ends.
Continue with blue yarn.
Round 6: Starting in the chain 2 space right before the snowflake “point” you just joined to (see picture below), chain 2 + DC in the chain 2 space, *SC +chain 1 + SC in the top of the DC stitches in snowflake point, 2 DC in chain 2 space, chain 1, 2 DC in next chain 2 space, repeat around from *, join to top of chain 2, chain 1
Round 7: SC in first 3 stitches, HDC in chain 1 space, DC in next 3 stitch, *chain 3 and skip over chain 1 space from previous row, DC in the next 3 stitches, HDC in chain 1 space, SC in next 3 stitches, SC over chain 1 space, SC in next 3 stitches, HDC over chain 1 space, DC in next 3, repeat from * until end… you should end with a SC over the chain 1 space because you are ending in the middle of the top edge of your snowflake, join, chain 1
Round 8: SC in each stitch around making 2 SC + chain 1 + 2 SC over each of the corner chains, join, fasten off and weave in ends.
Block if needed. HERE is a tutorial on how to block your square. My photos show an unblocked square.

Let it snow! Please be sure to share pictures of your snowflake squares and what you made with them. I would love to see an entire afghan made of these and my Snowman Square if you choose to make one!
