Free Crochet Snowman Pattern | Christmas Crochet

For the final week I have made a free crochet Snowman Pattern. I wanted to end this little collection of free patterns with a little toy for our little ones, the ones we really make the big effort for Christmas. Since making my Snowman who has been named Sophia the Snowlady! Pod takes her everywhere with her.

This is the fourth and final free crochet Christmas pattern I have & will be sharing with you as many of us stay at home through the month of November.

Crochet Snowman Pattern - Moara Crochet

Materials

  • 2.5mm (US C) Crochet hook
  • 100 meters DK cotton yarn (white)
  • 2 meters DK cotton yarn (brown)
  • 1 meter of DK cotton yarn (orange)
  • 1 meter of DK cotton yarn (black)
  • 20 meters of any yarn of your choosing for the hat & scarf with the matching crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Stuffing

Gauge: 28st x 24 rows using sc over 10 x 10cms. Using the smallest crochet hook you can with your chosen yarn to create tight stitches, this will help your snowman keep its form & not flop.

Size: Using Circulo Charme yarn & 2.5mm Snowman is 15cm tall, 7cm across.

Notes: All body parts are worked in the spiral. I would recommend using a stitch marker at the beginning of each row to keep count. The hat, scarf & the bag are each turn after every row. Using a contrasting yarn texture such as wool, alpaca or mohair will create a realistic knit like stitch.
