    unhardened snowflake

    I am a loose crocheter. The next one needs to be a bit tighter
    .It needs to be pinned out and hardened
    I didn't use wool, I used glittery hanging thread. I think the thread is pretty, but it needs to be a bit thicker.
     
  7. Yes - it is tricky to get the tension right!
    I am doing the simply knitting snowflake now I am going to hang them everywhere!

    Is that easier or harder than the other one?
     
  9. I think by the timeI had gone through the video I had learned some technique so now I know what I am doing. (sort of!)

    I think my snowflake will look ok once I have pinned it to shape and stiffened it.Need to go and eat a pizza in order to get a cardboard box on which to pin out snowflake.
    I bought myself a crochet book from the cheap book fair this afternoon.
     
  11. I just put mine over some newspapers and wrapped foil over that A box is probably firmer but I didn't want to wait My "fairy dust "makes it lovely [​IMG]

    My first one is still a bit floppy. How much glue did you use?

    Yes, very! Think I used up the entire supply of PVA in my town.
