Redan halvvägs till jul och därmed också halvvägs in i Stitchbloggers julkalender.
Hoppas du tycker om det som bjuds!

Idag den 12 december och det min tur att få äran att publicera ett julmönster. Mitt bidrag är snöflingan Snövit flirt, som ska limstärkas och dekoreras med en tofs. Har du några pärlor liggandes, använd gärna dem som extra piff. Snöflingan blir sedan fin att dekorera till exempel julfönstret med. I mönstret syns flingan i den vita Catonafärgen 105, men har du köpt garnpaketet från Favoritgarner finns det garn så det räcker till en av varje i färgerna 105 (vit), 192 (röd) och 393 (mörkgrå). Ett hett tips från mig är att använda rostfria knappnålar vid blockning, det är mindre roligt när de lämnar rostfläckar på det vita garnet.

Det svenska mönstret finns att hitta här hos tidningen Land.

 Nu önskar jag dig en trevlig virkstund! 

Tagga gärna #stitchbloggerxmas och #fingerscroched i sociala medier, så jag också får se din variant!

Round 5: (Instructions for the picots are under ”special stitches”.) *Ch6, picot in 4th ch, ch5, picot in 3rd ch, ch4, picot in 3rd ch, ch4, 3-picot, ch4, picot in 3rd ch, ch5, picot in 3rd ch, ch6, picot in 4th ch, ch2, 1 sl st in 4th ch of next ch-5, sl st to dc, ch8, 3-picot, ch5, sk ch-2, sl st in next dc, sl st to 2nd ch of ch-5*, repeat *-* 5 more times, but sk the last sl st. Cut and fasten yarn. (6 short points, 6 long points)

 

 Blocking and starching:

Mix wood glue and water in equal parts. Immerse the snowflake into the starch and squeeze it to get rid of all extra liquid. Stretch out and pin to a flat surface, remember to make a small hole in two opposite short points. Use some plastic between the snowflake and the surface so it does not get stuck. Remove the pins when perfectly dry.

 

 Assembling:

Make a tassel (decorate with some matching beads) and hang in the short point hole and also make a hanger on the opposite side. DONE!
