Just popping in to share with you another free snowflake pattern, in case you’re stitching up any holiday flakes this year!
This particular pattern is for a rather large snowflake – it would make a nice focal point on a table cloth or table runner, especially if surrounded by smaller flakes arranged in a pleasing way.
But it might just work on its own, on a little red cloth napkin, which is how I’m stitching it up. Granted, it takes almost a quarter of the cloth napkin – but it’s pretty, and it’s fun to stitch.
For those of you just joining in on this particular stitchy series of snowflakes and other folk designs that can be embroidered on plain weave fabric using counted cross stitch, you’ll find all the previous articles explaining what I’m doing and how, along with other free patterns, through the following links:

Here’s the handy dandy PDF printable for the large snowflake shown above. When you print it, make sure you choose “scale to fit page” or “shrink to fit” or something similar in your print settings, so that it prints on one page.
I hope you enjoy it!
