I have not been able to access this pattern. Can someone share please? Site states "under construction" kkrn79

Hello, I'd like to know if there is a diagram pattern available for this design? Thank you so much!

After looking at the pattern I would say there is no diagram can try to contact the actual pattern designer but it was written in 2001 and it seems that the website has not been updated since 2013. If you are wondering how to assemble the afghan, try using other hexagon afghan patterns for inspiration and/or instructions. I hope this helps.

I saw this at the Minnesota State Fair on August 29. 2018 . The background color was red and the stars were a sparkly white. A white border. I did rate it but have not made it yet.

Now this is a beautiful afghan. The rich blue background really makes the snowflakes stand out. Unfortunately, the designer just states to select a dark color for the background. I would love to know what brand and color was used for this.

Snowflakes are all about winter and what a special way to bring them inside. Winter is not my favorite season but who does not love the peace and tranquility of a fresh snow fall? This snowflake afghan is beautiful and please note how the edge of this design is scalloped. That is a beautiful design element.

This is such a lovely snowflake pattern. Definitely a keeper! I love tazike's idea of using a sparkly white wool for the snowflakes. And it just so happens I have some in my stash. Not enough for a whole afghan, but enough to make a motif or two. Then I could applique them onto a pillow or maybe a tote bag. Thanks Tazike!

This is another pattern in the group that I like to do. I like the blue and white combination. Here's the link to the pattern http//

I used a sparkly form of wool for the white snowflakes. This came out great! Easy pattern to follow as well.

I am just finishing up this one, and it is stunning. I might make another, but with a different background color. The soft white/navy blue combo is classic, but I'll bet it rocks in red!

I made one last year. Posted it on a craft site for sale, everybody loves it but nobody wants to buy it. What am I doing wrong?

A lot will depend on a) how much exposure the craft site gets and b) how much you are asking for it.

I made one Red and White... love it!

I made 2 of these. One had a green background and one a red background. Will try to send pictures to you

I made this afghan and everyone loves it and wants me to make one for them. The only things is..... As with all hexagon afghans, the sides have big empty spaces. Is there someway I can eliminate these "notches"?


It is beautiful, what is the finished size? Thank you.

like this so much making it for chanukkah

I have made two of these afghans. They are just beautiful when finished.

Hi! Did your snowflakes turn out like the picture? I made some sample snowflakes just to see how they would look but that was nothing like the picture and I followed the pattern to the letter. I would love to make this afghan but I'm disappointed it won't look right. Yvonne

Just keep working the pattern. The blue changes the snowflake look somewhat.

Just keep working the pattern, the blue changes the snowflake appearance a little

Beautiful afghan. Looking forward to starting this weekend.

This is so beautiful, I enjoyed making it and will make one more with white on white/silver. very easy to make and put together.

Love this pattern :)

I love it . I started it the first of January visiting for 2 weeks. But now I am home working on other orders. But I will finish it as I love it with the dusty shade of blue I am using.

I've been looking for something like this...thank you for creating it! I'm getting my hooks out now....

This is lovely and the colors are great! Would love to win, thank you for the opportunity to try to win this item.

I'd prefer it in a white-on white combo, using fisherman's wool for the background.

very beautiful!!

Beautiful... If I dont' win it I may have to make it!!

I absolutely love snow flakes and the colors of white and blue together! This Snowflake Afghan is beautiful!

I LOVE this afghan. Would be perfect for a cold winter's night curled up in front of the fireplace with the one you love. Merry Christmas, keep up the good word please.

This is so pretty--perfect for a snowy evening.


I love this afghan. Wish I had the time to crochet it.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...

Just like looking up at the sky, watching those dainty snowflakes slowly swirling to earth.

it is very pretty. i really like the colors.

looks lovely and a great challenge to try out maybe using red or green as the background of the snowflakes would be nice too

Absolutely beautiful. I saved it to do at a later date. Thanks.

I would love to crochet this,i think I would do it in different colors, but it is such a cool pattern

I think this would be pretty in Aurora Borealis colors too!

I made a version of this pattern two years ago, except the snowflakes had eight points. I've seen both: six and eight.

This is beautiful. I will definately have to make this one.

Beautiful pattern. I can hardly wait to try it! Thanks for sharing it.

I am fascinated by snowflakes & this may very well be my after Christmas project!

This is a beautiful afghan, the white stands out against the royal blue background.

I love snowflakes!

It never ceases to amaze me how creative some people are. It's one thing to be able to reproduce an item, but to be able to first imagine it and then make it real is an amazing talent. This afghan demonstrates that. It is so beautiful and will most definitely be added to the top of my project list.

This is absolutely beautiful!

I think I may give this a try, it looks great!

It is so beautiful almost makes me wish it would snow here. This would be just beautiful this winter on my couch to keep me warm at night.

This is beautiful. I am just learning to crochet and would love to be able to make one of these in the future.

It's beautiful

It would look beautiful with the snowflakes I made for my christmas tree. I can't wait to get started! This afghan is simply gorgeous!

Love this snowflake afghan..wish I knew how to make it or to afford to learn/try it.

Stunning contrasts with the navy background and the white lacy snowflakes

Beautiful. Looks to be an easy pattern to do even with the snowflakes looking hard to make.

absolutely beautiful, LET IT SNOW LET IT SNOW


How beautiful! It makes my fingers tingle to think of such a project!

Gorgeous, it looks like it would be fun to make.

Really beautiful and cozy-looking. Never tried motifs before, this would be great.

This snowflake afgan is BEAUTIFUL, I started one years ago, but it got lost in the shuffle of activities,etc.


How nice! Snowflakes that keep you warm!

Snowflakes and Christmas just go together. Love the blue can just see the flakes falling on a dark winter night.

I think the afghan is stunning - the colors are perfect for snow at night, and the edges mimic the snowflake so well. I think anyone would enjoy getting such a lovely piece, but would also love making it.

What a beautiful afghan! I love snowflakes

What an inspiring afghan! I love it! A beautiful snowflake! I could only imagine how wonderful it would be to wrap up in this afghan by the fireplace, with a cup of cocoa and a great book!

cuddle up with this and a good book and unwind

This is a beautiful afghan. Perfect for the winter season.

Amazing how REAL those snowflakes look...I downloaded the pattern and will need to determine if I have the skill for this. Kudos to the pattern maker and crocheter who made this!

This is a beautiful afghan! Can't wait to get started on creating it for my home. The colors are perfect for a wintery, cottage look.

This afghan reminds me of Christmas's back East in New York..It makes me think of..I'm Dreaming of A White Christmas!

Best kind of snowflakes, they do not melt or combine together to make inches and inches of snow.............Does not cause accidents nor school closings. Love these snowflakes !!!

I love this afghan

I do love the colors and I love snow!! Makes me think back to my childhood days sitting with my Momma watching the snowflakes fall!

Absolutely gorgeous! Definitely adding this to my To Do list. : )

Beautiful! Makes me wish for some snow.

just beautiful


I can't wait to make this. It is absolutely beautiful.

I love this afghan. Blue is my favorite color and I still cut snowflakes out of folded paper.

That's a very nice looking afghan!

Beautiful! Would love to have one but I noticed the intermediate rating. Just how difficult is it? (This is for the ones who have already made it. ) Thanks

Beautiful...reminds me of Christmas Eve in New England with the snow falling

These projects are great to make in the summer when it is too hot to have big projects draped on your lap and then assemble when it cools off. My problem is that I sometime forget that I made them or where I stash the pieces to be assembled. Getting old is not for the faint of heart. :)

This Afghan reminds me of my first memory of Snow falling. Than you for putting a memory smile on my face.

Preeeeetty! Looks really nice.

I have made this afgan and it is georgous

What a beautiful Afghan can't wait to make!

I have made this aghan! It was fun to make! I'd make it again.

this looks like fun project for when the snow is flying.

It looks very pretty. I haven't done a square afghan in a long time, might try this one.

I so want to try this pattern. It's just gorgeous!

So pretty and it looks so cozy rather than chilly.

This is beautiful! I think I am going to try making my own.

I like snowflakes inside better than outside.

Really beautiful! It will go well in my home ! :>)

this is so cute - love it!

So pretty!! And you could do it in so many different color mixes, too. Thanks for this one!

What a beautiful afghan! Really draws your attention.

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!! Wish I knew how or at least could remember how to crochet. Been 20 long years of not doing it. Please someone make this for me? My house is themed SNOWMEN for the holidays and this would be perfect! THANKS

Absolutely gorgeous. My best friend's passion is blue & white snowflakes items. The one thing she DOESN'T have is an awesome afghan like this. I am praying to win this so I can make it for her. She is the best friend EVER!

It is just beautiful. I would love to make it.

this is on my list for next year, I decorate with blue and snowflakes, its beautiful and snowflakes are for the whole winter,not just christmas

This is so beautiful!

Beautiful afghan.

I would love to make this one - it's the putting together after making all the motifs which keeps me from starting it right away!

I really like this pattern...originally I said: "I'd like to try this snowflake afghan with different colors; maybe an ice blue for the flakes and lighter blue (not navy) for the background...or red or a deep, more ideas than" and this is the third place I've said it... :-P

This is on my list of MUST DO's! Beautiful :)
