How Would You Use This Snowflake Motif?

I’ve seen this motif and afghan lots of times on various web sites and at a few craft shows and have always thought it was beautiful but never had the instructions for it.  So, for those of you that are like me, here is the pattern.  This would be a wonderful January/February project to work on while the snow is flying!

The afghan is beautiful.  These would make nice accent pillows, maybe a table runner, snowflake coasters.  Maybe you would make them using crochet thread instead of yarn.  The possibilities are endless and limited only by our imagination!

Follow the directions below to create whatever your imagination can come up with!  Happy Crocheting!
