Fair Isle Snowflake Ornament Reviewed by Martha Henrikson on 2013-01-01 *****
This is a nice ornament. If you notice on the snowflake pattern on row 19 the last stitch should be red, not while. I used a nice green and did the snowflake with a white with shiny thresd and it is very pretty. Bigger than I was thinking, but I like it. Thanks for free patterns.
