*R of 2ds, p, 2ds, join to 4th p of last r, 2ds, 3p sep by 2ds, 2ds, cl, rw. Ch of 5ds, p, 5ds, rw. R of 2ds, join to last p of previous r, 2ds, 4p sep by 2ds, 2ds, cl, rw. Ch of 4ds, p, 4ds, rw. R of 2ds, join to last p of previous r, 2ds 4p sep by 2ds, 2ds, cl, rw. Ch of 3ds, p, 3ds, rw.

 

**R of 2ds, join to last p of previous r, 2ds, 4p sep by 2ds, 2ds, cl. Rep from** twice. Rw.
Ch of 3ds, join to p of corresponding ch, 3ds, rw. R of 2ds, join to last p of previous r, 2ds, 4p sep by 2ds, 2ds, cl, rw. Ch of 4ds, join to p of corrsponding ch, 4ds, rw. R of 2ds, join to last p of previous r, 2ds 4p sep by 2ds, 2ds, cl, rw. Ch of 5ds, join to p of corresponding ch, 5ds, rw. R of 2ds, join to last p of previous r, 2ds, 4p sep by 2ds, 2ds, cl, rw. Ch of 7ds, join to lp, 7ds, rw.*** Rep from * to ***

 

R of 2ds, p, 2ds, join to 4th p of previous r, 2ds, 3p sep by 2ds, 2ds, cl, rw. Ch or 5ds, join to p of 3rd ch made, 5 ds, rw. R of 2ds, join to last p of previous r, 2ds, 4p sep by 2ds, 2ds, cl, rw.

Ch of 3ds, join to p of 1st ch made, 3ds, join to base of 1st r. Cut and tie ends. Dab a spot of glue on knot.

 

Second set of petals:
Make in the same way as the first set but make every ring starting and finishing with 3ds. (i.e. 3ds,
5p sep by 2ds, 3ds, cl)

 

To make up:
1. Cut 6, 33 gauge wires, each 6cm long.
2. Place a wire through the centre hole, bend and glue to the inside of a petal (up the centre of the
petal) putting a dab of glue at each join of the chains.
3. Repeat step 2 for each petal on both sets of petals.
4. Place a spot of glue on the inside of the larger petal set in the centre.
5. Sit the smaller set of petals inside the larger ones by pushing the 3 central wires through the central hole so that the two sets of petals are glued together. There are now six wires extending from the centre of the base of the flower.
6. Cut 1, 24 gauge wire 15cm long and tape 6 yellow stamens to one end with one stamen extending beyond the other.
7. Thread the long wire and stamens through the centre of the flower and fix into position with glue.
8. Cover all wires with green tape from the base of the flower.
9. Curve the petals into the shape of a tulip.

 

Starry Snowflakes by Linda S. Davies Copyright 2014

Permission granted from Linda Davies

Materials:
White cotton size 40, 2 shuttles, 24 seed beads, PVA glue.
Method:
Thread all the beads onto the ball of cotton and then fill shuttle 1. Slide the beads towards shuttle 1 and pull off enough cotton to fill shuttle 2 and wind shuttle 2. Put 6 of the beads onto shuttle 1 and 18 beads towards shuttle 2.
Round 1:
R1 Sh1 Slide 1 bead into the ring around your fingers and tat
2—2—2—2, slide the bead into place, 2—2—2—2, cl, RW
Ch1    Sh2 9
           Sh2     R    2—2—2—2—2—2, cl
           Sh2     9, RW
R2      Sh1    2—2—2, j to p of R1 a-er bead, 2—2—2—2, cl, RW
Ch2 As Ch1
Rep to make 6 rings and 6 chains. Join R6 to R1 at 3rd p and make 6th chain a split chain as follows:
Ch 6   Sh2 9
SCh    Sh1 9
SR      Sh     2 2-2-2/2-2-2. DNRW
Round 2:
Ch1    Sh2 5, b, 5, RW
R1      Sh1 2—2—2, j bet 2 chs on round 1, 2—2—2, cl, RW
Ch2   Sh2 5. b. 5. j to centre picot of next R on round 1, DNRW
R2     Sh2 Slide 1 bead into the ring around your fingers and tat
                  2—2—2—2, slide the bead into place, 2—2—2—2, cl, DNRW
Rep from Ch1 all round making the last ring a split ring as follows;
R12    Sh2 Slide 1 bead into the ring around your fingers and tat
2—2—2—2, slide the bead into place, 2
Sh1 2—2—2, cl, DNRW

 

Round 3:
All chains in this round are lock chains which are made by making each double stitch thus; first half of the double stitch flipped in the normal way and the second half of the double stitch not flipped. You may notice that your thread twists a lot doing this type of chain and I recommend you let your shuttle drop to untwist regularly.
Ch1    10 lock stitches (ls), j between next two chains on round 2,
           10 ls, j to 2nd p of next R on round 2, DNRW
Ch2    5 ls, 1 normal ds, 5 ls, j to next free p of same R on round 2.
Rep all round , j to starting point of the round. Tie and trim ends close to knot, dab knot with glue.

 

Optional:
Make the last chain on round 3 (Ch12) 5 ls, ds p ds, 5 ls.
This will provide a little loop to enable you to hang your star snowflake up.
