Giant Snowflake

After ripping out the extra giant snowflake necklace I gave The Toft Alpaca Shop's Giant Snowflake Necklace crochet pattern another try and made a reasonably sized giant snowflake necklace.

I used the same yarn and hook as before, but made my stitches tighter. The extra giant version of this necklace was my first real crochet project (I made a deformed granny square before and lots of crochet chains) so I didn't realize my gauge was really off. When I knit I tend to make my stitches very tight and I often go up a needle size and I constantly have to remind myself to loosen up so I kept my crochet stitches loose too. Now I know I need to pull my crochet stitches tight to keep from having oversized, floppy projects.

Next week I have another crochet project to share! I'm getting pretty good and am planning a larger crochet project soon!

Update: I closed comments because I was getting way too much spam!
