This “Snowflake” crochet design was originally meant for the neck and sleeves of a dress. The size isn’t given, but I’d guess it’s a mini-snowflake because it’s for embellishing clothing. Nevertheless, this design would make a pretty little Christmas tree ornament.
Lily Mills Company
You’ll find the pattern in a Lily Mills Company booklet dated 1941 titled Lily’s Album of Crocheted Designs for You and Your Home. It’s Book number 1200.
This is the cover in color.
Daisy Mercerized Crochet Cotton
Lily Mills was famous for their cottons. The pattern for this ornament uses Daisy Mercerized Crochet Cotton, size 50 and a size 14 crochet hook.
