I originally posted this little crochet snowman in a Christmas post a few years ago. But as I was making a few of these up the other day, I thought I would give him his own post and do a video to!
Gauge really isn’t important with this, but I was using worsted weight yarn and an H hook. A note on the snowman’s hat, normally when you single crochet you chain 1. In this pattern I chained 2, because I wanted the hat to be a “little” lopsided. I wanted the effect of a snowman just made by children. You know what I mean right? By the time the hat gets on the top, it’s been much loved. lol If you want a smooth and neat edge on your hat, then chain 1 instead!
Chain 4, join with a slip stitch.
1st Row work 10 dc in the center of ring. Join to the first one with a sl. Chain 3 turn.
2nd Row *Work 2 dc in first stitch, work 1 dc in next stitch. * Repeat ** all the way around, join with sl.
Repeat row 2 until desired size is reached. In my example I stopped after row 2.
Weave ends in.
Row 1 Chain 16, slip stitch back through all chains. At the end slip stich backwards 4 stitches. Chain 2
Row 2 *Sc in 8 stitches. Chain 2 turn.*
Repeat ** until hat is desired height. Cut yarn, weave in ends and sew to snowman face.
I used google eyes and sequins for the mouth and nose. However I think mini pompoms would be very cute to!
