When I finished it, I started thinking about what it would look like if I followed the pattern as written using U.S. stitches rather than UK stitches. In other words, what if I work a dc where it says dc? I had to make one simple adjustment in that the beginning ch of each round had to be adjusted to a ch 2 in round 1&2, for round 3 ONLY in the first chain loop did I make a change. The first dc I worked a ch 2 and followed the instructions for the remaining round. The snowflake worked out larger and airer.
Also, for both I used size 10 cotton and a size 6 (1.80 mm) steel hook. So here is the link to Attic24's Crochet Snowflake.
