The thread is key. Review by Maria

I really liked this pattern. The instructions are very clear and I was able to crochet the earrings quite fast. I am very glad that I downloaded this pattern, however I would have given it five stars if only I realized that the thread needed to get the proper size of the earrings is a very fine thread. The thread I used was slightly thicker than the one the pattern asks for and so it did make a difference in the final width of the snowflakes, anyway being thicker it was already challenging enough to crochet because of its size. I imagine that if I would have used the thread the pattern asks for it would have been even more difficult to work on.
