I made a pattern!!

I made my first pattern today!

It's just a simple snowflake pattern, but still. I'm excited!

Errata: 12/2/12- I fixed the requested yardage amount, added parentheses on Rnd 2 for better understanding, and changed "make picot" to "make triple picot"- all changes can be seen below

O simple picot snowflake J

Depends  on hook and yarn used
One ball of yarn or crochet thread (only about 10-25 yards needed)
Crochet hook
Tapestry needle
Ornament hook or extra yarn to hang
Sugar syrup: 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, boiled until clear and then cooled

This sample was made with Knitpicks Comfy Fingering yarn in Planetarium with a size B (2.25 mm) crochet hook. This snowflake can be made in any size- you could even use a worsted weight yarn and a size J or I hook to make a coaster or doily

To begin:  ch 6 and join with a sl st to make loop. You could also make an adjustable ring by wrapping the yarn around your finger
Round 1: Ch 8, *dc in ring, ch 5* Rep from * four more times. Join with sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch. (6 loops)
R2: Ch 3 *(dc, ch 6, dc)  all into next ch 5 sp. Dc in next dc* Rep from * around. Sl st into top of beg ch
R3: Ch 1, sc into next dc. *(sc, hdc, dc, 2tr, make triple picot, tr, dc, hdc, sc) all in next ch 6 sp. Sc in next two dc, ch 3 and sc in same dc, sc in next dc* rep until you get to last dc of last round. Sc in dc and the beg ch, ch 3, sc in same ch. Sl st to first sc.  Fasten off and weave in ends.

Make Triple Picot: ch 4, sl st in 4th ch from hook, ch 5, sl st in 5th ch from hook, ch 4, sl st in 4th ch from hook, sl st to top of tr

Finishing: If desired, soak snowflake in sugar syrup mixture. Gently squeeze out excess moisture and hard block (stretching out points and pinning) on an old towel, or blocking mat with a piece of wax paper to protect the board. When dry, attach an ornament hook, or make a loop with an extra piece of yarn

Ch- chain
Sc- single crochet
Hdc- half-double crochet
Dc- Double crochet
Tr- treble (or triple) crochet
Sl st- slip stitch
