On this page several snowflake-grounds are collected.
Please see the discussion on the Notes page about the difference between spiders and snowflakes.
Usually, the little snowflake is drawn as picture on the left, on a 60 degree grid. Most of the variants shown on this page benefit of extra pins on the sides. As in the picture on the right. In the prickings below, the pins are not drawn.
For the Binche spiders see page Spiders.
Little snowflake, crossed
Snowflake in a diamond
Snowflake in a diamond, crossed
The name of these snowflakes is based on origami.
Windmill snowflakes framed with a Paris ground
Ringed paired windmill snowflakes
Windmill snowflakes in a diamond
Half little snowflake
If the stitches indicated in white in the picture on the right are omitted, we get a half little snowflake. This can be used in several configurations.
The pricking of the first example is equivalent to no 47 from Moderne Torchonspitze, where it is presented rose-ground style.
Some of the grounds can be made either as a crossed snowflake or as a rose ground. See the example below: the result is the same.
