Lacyflakes Knitted Snowflake Medallions
HeartStrings knitting pattern #H22
Knitted lace snowflakes! I have always been intrigued by the fact that in God's handywork, no two snowflakes are alike. This pattern includes 2 types of construction, each quite different from the other, plus variations for knitting snowflake medallions. Click the pictures on left and right to see enlarged view in a separate browser window.
These snowflake medallions only hint at the abundance of detail that occurs in nature. The formations of a snowflake alter the path of light passing through them, thus causing areas of light and dark. This seemed to me like a natural match for interpreting in lace!

Although snowflakes themselves are colorless, do not be limited to using only white yarn. For the sample models, I chose silk yarns with beads and sequins to give hints of light dancing off snowflakes. Also, the colors I chose simulate some of the hues of earth and sky that reflect through snowflakes.
I hope you have as much fun knitting these designs as I have had in creating them. Let your imagination run wild in making your own "each one different" snowflakes.
