Flower Snowflake – Free Pattern

The boys and I are in Kuwait now to spend Christmas holidays together with dad, as a family. .

In the time we’ve been away from this country,  not much has changed and we seem to fit right in. People do  seem to think we are not from here , so we must have changed I guess.Anyways , it feels good to be back.

While dh goes to work, the children and I sit together and watch a movie or each do our own thing in the same room. The one movie we watched and loved was Planes. Made along the lines of the movie Cars. Honestly I liked Cars better but this one is good too. My boys Loved it.

I made this  snowflake sometime back . I figured out the pattern from the picture.

Snowflake  2

This  snowflake sprung up on my google feed when I typed crochet Snowflakes while  browsing snowflake patterns. And inspired I made up my own pattern  as I couldn’t find any pattern for it.

A lovely lady asked me for the pattern . I was worried of the implications of posting something that I figured out from looking  at on the net.A little discussion with the ladies at my group put my mind to rest that if the source is credited , its ok.So I thought I will share my version.

So here it is, the inspired Flower Snowflake   🙂
