Remember this Twinchy from the December Twinchy Challenge? I wasn’t able to do the charts because I had packed away the manual I needed.
I found it and charted four snowflakes for you.
To make the Twinchy mark out a 2″ square area and stitch it in T Stitch or Basketweave. I colored my square blue and then stitched.
The snowflakes are then stitched in Back Stitch, either completely or partially, using metallic thread. This snowflake is complete and off center.
Remember that Back Stitches in needlepoint go over two threads.
This snowflake is smaller than the others.
This is a big bold snowflake.
For a different look you could make the background dark blue and stitch these as stars in gold or silver.

Ooh snowflakes – just what I was needing! I’m not doing twinchies (although I do like the idea), but have plans for something else.
Thank you for sharing these! I LOVE snowflakes! Wonderful!
DESPERATE to find all 15 snowflakes used for the 15 sided biscornu! Can you help me?

You would need to look for these charts at cross stitch shops or blogs. I’m not familiar with this item.
