Creating Reoite’s “Snow Flower” – Part 1

The “Snow Flower” on my Reoite Mitten pattern is worked as you crochet, rather than being added afterwards.
As such, it’s literally part of the fabric of the glove, making them warmer on your hand and cozier to the touch.

Reoite has 4 Snow Flowers per glove, and here’s how you create this gorgeous, textured effect with some simple loops and regular length crochet hook.

First Things First

There’s some crocheting to be done.

Getting set up to create the first Snow Flower

Next, we have to locate a spot on the fabric we’ve created..

Three TSS sts in…
…and four rows down.

From the next stitch along, count three stitches in, and then count four rows down. There is a little hole in your fabric on the bottom right of that stitch’s bar.
(It’s on the bottom left for left-handed makers)

The First Petal



Insert your hook into that hole, push through to the back of your fabric and make a Yarn Over.

Hook at back of fabric, with Yarn Over added

Draw Yarn Over through to the front of work, and stretch until loop reaches top of fabric.

This is your first Snow Flower petal

Peek behind the petal you have just made and you’ll see the previous row’s TSS bars sitting there.
Insert hook into the next one along:

Yarn Over, and draw through:

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Adding More Petals

We will repeat the above dance steps a few times until our flower starts to bloom.

Insert hook into same hole in fabric, Yarn over and draw a second petal loop through to front
Locate next TSS bar on previous row behind petal, insert hook, Yarn Over and draw another loop onto hook

Once you’ve done this repeatedly, you’ll notice that the loops on your hook alternate between a long (petal) loop and a shorter (TSS) loop.

Stop picking up loops when you have 6 petals and 5 TSS loops on your hook.

Pop a latchable stitch marker onto your hook.

Make sure the stitch marker you use is a removable one.

Complete the row as directed in the pattern:
(This varies depending on the position of the Snow Flower, so follow the pattern to be sure).
