Black Friday ~ Pattern Sale!!

Our Canadian Thanksgiving was in October, but I know everyone is excited for the American Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales! So, I thought why not have a pattern sale for those who are looking for deals!

All my patterns will be on sale on Etsy (only Etsy just to simplify things) for 50% off! Any pattern you like, and as many as you like! Yay!! Just use coupon code BF2016 to get 50% off your purchase. The sale will go from today till November 27th.

If you are just starting your crocheting for the holidays, there are a number of pretty patterns that work up quickly. Women’s hats, cowls, boot cuffs, and fingerless gloves make great gifts!

And if you have any little ones in your life, the animal hats are a huge hit!

Animal Hats are a favourite for kids of all ages!

The Double Ribbed Hat is a favourite for men…

These hats can be made in so many different colours!

Doll Clothes make a great gift for little girls… my girls will each be getting a set, in the colours they want, for their dolls this year.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you each get to spend the day with your families, and enjoy some yummy food. And while you are relaxing, dig our your crochet hooks, some pretty yarn and a new pattern!

Welcome to Five Snowflakes Designs

Welcome to my Five Snowflakes Designs blog!! I hope you will enjoy following along as I create patterns, learn new stitches, and try to keep up with life in general!

 

Some of you have followed my Facebook page from the beginning and have seen the changes over the years, but some have not, so I will introduce myself and explain a bit about Five Snowflakes Designs.

 

My name is Ramona, and I have a wonderful husband named Joel, and 3 children who are growing up way too fast! We felt it was important for me to stay home with our children when they were small, so crafting and crochet has been a way for me to contribute a bit to our family finances, and a great sanity saver!

When I first opened my little shop on Etsy, it was called Cute Capes… because that is what I first started selling. When we moved our oldest daughter from her infant seat to a child car seat, I wanted something quick to put on that would be warm and cozy and cute! I sewed a little fleece cape with a warm collar that everyone seemed to like.

 

Then I also added some cute crocheted hats and headbands to my store – and changed the name to Cute Capes ‘n’ Caps.

Since then I have discovered that I love designing patterns, and all of my items are now my own design. My patterns cover a wide range of items – animal hats, basic hats, cuddle cocoons, fingerless gloves, boot cuffs, and more, and I needed a name that would work for everything I make.

                          Most pictures are from A Day in the Life Photography, the elf hat picture is from Evie Rose Photography, and Patterns can be purchased here

 

Thus, the name Five Snowflakes Designs… five for the number of our little family, snowflakes because they are beautiful and unique (and I hope my patterns are too), and designs because that’s what I love doing!
