Easy Crochet Snowman (Free Pattern)

Easy Crochet Snowman

Hopefully still in time for the Christmas season, here's a quick and easy crochet pattern I figured out to make some snowmen! They make great little gifts, and you can even make them into a Christmas tree ornament or an accessory to add to electronics, purses, bags etc. And if you want to make a bigger one, just substitute the hook and thread for a thicker hook and yarn.


 
Materials:
Size 10 Crochet Thread (white, red)
Size 2.75mm (US C2) crochet hook
Polyester stuffing material
Black felt (or another substitute for eyes)
Orange pipe-cleaner/chenille stem
Hot glue gun
Embroidery needle
Beads (or another substitute for buttons)

Finished size:
6cm tall (approximately; I gave them away before I remembered to measure them)

Abbreviations Used:
R - row
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
mm - move stitch marker
sc2tog - decrease single crochet by stitching two stitches together
FO - finish off

Tips

  • Stuff the head before continuing with the body
  • Stuff the hat before attaching it to the head
  • To use as a Christmas tree ornament, or just an accessory to attach somewhere, just thread some of the crochet thread through the hat and tie it together
  

My snowmen came out to be about 6cm tall. If you want to fold a little box to give them in, here's a great tutorial for a simple box I used to give mine in! Your paper should be 15cmx15cm (top) and 14.5cmx14.5cm (bottom) for a perfect fit.


Feel free to leave me comments, questions, pictures etc.! Merry Christmas! :)
