Sprig Snowflake Pattern

This winter, I've become obsessed with the simple Sprig Stitch, and have in turn designed a hat, cowl and a snowflake using it. I thought you might like to have a go at these simple, versatile snowflakes. These can be made with any weight yarn and the relevant hook size. 

Why not make a few for a garland, throw some sparkly yarn in there to jazz them up. Or go the full hog with jumbo yarn, neon and pom poms. Wherever your creativity takes you, use up those scraps and tag me in the posts on social media so I can see!
