INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE
1. Snowflakes are worked with RS facing throughout.
2. The first snowflake is worked. Then the next snowflakes are worked, one at a time, and joined to previous snowflakes while working Round 2 (joining round).
3. Make and join snowflakes by first joining snowflakes into one row of 18 snowflakes. Then make and join the next row of snowflakes, one at a time. If you make and join snowflakes in this order, each snowflake will only need to be joined to one edge of one or two previous snowflakes.
4. Refer to assembly diagram for placement of white and colored snowflakes. Each colored snowflake may be color of your choice.
5. A total of 388 snowflakes are worked, 136 white snowflakes, and 252 colored snowflakes (50 or 51 of each color).
 
THROW
First Snowflake
Ch 6; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Round 1 (RS): Beg-Cl in ring, ch 3, [Cl in ring, ch 3] 5 times; join with sl st in top of beg-Cl—6 clusters.
Round 2: [(Sc, ch 3, sc) in next ch-3 sp, ch 2] 6 times; join with sl st in first sc.
Fasten off.
Next Snowflake (make and join 387 more snowflakes)
Ch 6; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Round 1: Work Row 1 of first snowflake.
Determine placement for snowflake (refer to assembly diagram) and work appropriate Round 2 (joining round). When joining current snowflake to previous snowflake, hold snowflakes with wrong sides together, and with sides to be joined aligned.
Round 2 (joining one side to previous snowflake): (Sc, ch 3, sc) in next ch-3 sp of current snowflake, ch 2, [sc in next ch-3 sp of current snowflake, ch 1, sc in corresponding ch-3 sp of previous snowflake, ch 1, sc in same ch-3 sp of current snowflake, ch 2] twice, [(sc, ch 3, sc) in next ch-3 sp of current snowflake, ch 2] 3 times; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
Round 2 (joining to two sides to previous snowflakes): (Sc, ch 3, sc) in next ch-3 sp of current snowflake, ch 2, [sc in next ch-3 sp of current snowflake, ch 1, sc in corresponding ch-3 sp of previous snowflake, ch 1, sc in same ch-3 sp of current snowflake, ch 2] 3 times, [(sc, ch 3, sc) in next ch-3 sp of current snowflake, ch 2] twice; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
 
Border
With RS facing, join A with sl st in any ch-3 sp of a corner snowflake,
Round 1: Ch 1, work sc all the way around, as follows: work 3 sc in each outer corner ch-3 sp (snowflake point), 2 sc in each ch-2 sp (on side of snowflakes), and 2 sc in each inner corner ch-3 sp (the ch-3 sps on either side of a join between snowflakes); join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
Round 2: With RS facing, join B with sl st in any sc, ch 1, sc in each sc around, working 3 sc in center sc of each snowflake point, and skipping 2 sc at each inner corner; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.
Round 3: With RS facing, join C with sl st in any sc, repeat Round 2. Fasten off.
Round 4: With RS facing, join D with sl st in any sc, repeat Round 2. Fasten off.
Round 5: With RS facing, join E with sl st in any sc, repeat Round 2. Fasten off.
Round 6: With RS facing, join F with sl st in any sc, repeat Round 2. Fasten off.
Round 7: With RS facing, join A with sl st in any sc, repeat Round 2. Fasten off.
 
FINISHING
Using yarn needle, weave in all ends.
