RETIRED CROCHET PATTERN: Drifting Star and Falling Star Snowflake Hexagons

As of 4.11.22, I have permanently retired this pattern in favor of a new and improved version of the same design. Stay tuned!

A lacy crocheted hexagon in two different sizes for shawls, throws, pillow overlays, curtains, or afghans. This pattern uses US terminology, with UK terminology in parentheses, detailed stitch instructions, and close-up photos.

Contained in this pattern are instructions for both sizes…the Drifting Star, which measures 12-inch (30 cm) from point to point, and the Falling Star, which measures 15-inches (38 cm). Note in the photos above that various lovely projects will result from using different color sequences and fewer rounds for smaller pieces.
