Free Crochet Snowman Pattern – Notes

Skill level: intermediate crochet skills and knowledge

Finished size: 20cm / 8 inches

Free Crochet Snowman Pattern – Materials and Equipment

Yarn I used for this free crochet snowman pattern:

– Fine Sport #2 = 4 ply

– 55% cotton and 45% acrylic

– 1x ball of white yarn – YarnArt Jeans – colour 01 – (50g/160m)

– 1x ball of red yarn – YarnArt Jeans – colour 90 – (50g/160m)

– 1x ball of green yarn – YarnArt Jeans – colour 60 – (50g/160m)

– 1x ball of orange yarn – YarnArt Jeans – colour 77 – (50g/160m)

 

I like to purchase my YarnArt Jeans from Amazon HERE or from Etsy HERE. If you would like to check some great substitutes for YarnArt Jeans then have a read of my Best Yarn for Making Amigurumi tutorial. You can find the substitutes towards the end of the article.

Or just simply use any 100% cotton that will work just as well. You can also use 100% acrylic if you prefer to work with this type of yarn.

Other materials used: polyester fibre fill, long piece of black thread yarn for mouth embroidery, white pom pom

Crochet hook: I used 2.5mm = B/1, if using different weight of yarn then refer to hook size recommendations on the yarn but go one size smaller. I highly recommend this ergonomic crochet hook set from Amazon as it comes in a stylish case and with other accessories such as stitch markers etc.

Other equipment used: scissors, yarn needle, pins with large heads, stitch marker or thin yarn to use instead, 8mm safety eyes, two black buttons

Choking hazard warning: the use of safety eyes or buttons poses a choking risk for children under the age of 3 therefore I recommend using embroidery instead.

You can now place the eyes:

– stuff the head well first

– place eyes between rounds R54 and R55 leaving 10 stitches in between the eyes

– it helps to use pins with large heads to first mark the spots where the eyes will be placed – you can make a decision whether you are happy with the placement and if it looks symmetrical before you insert the safety eyes; the safety eyes usually make a large hole in between the stitches so it is not recommended to change the placement of the eyes once they are in

– you can now insert the safety eyes and put the safety backs on

R64: (SC in next 3 ST, INV DEC) x 6 {24}

How to Crochet the Arms

Crochet the mitten first and then continue with the arm.

 

Mitten:

Crochet the thumb and the rest of the fingers as two separate parts to start with. You will then join them together at a later stage.

 

Thumb:

R1: MR – 6 x SC into the ring {6}

R2: (SC in next 2 ST, INC) x 2 {8}

R3: SC in each ST around {8}

FO and weave the yarn end in.

 

Fingers:

R1: MR – 6 x SC into the ring {6}

R2: INC in each ST around {12}

R3: (SC in next ST, INC) x 6 {18}

R4-R7 (4 rounds): SC in each ST around {18}

Do not FO or cut off the yarn as you will continue to crochet R8 to join the thumb and the fingers together.

 

To join the two parts together continue to crochet R8 of the fingers:

R8: SC in next 9 ST of the fingers, pull a short string through the next ST to use as a marker; you will refer to it at a later stage, you will now join the fingers to the thumb – insert your hook into any stitch of the thumb (Pic M1), SC in next 8 ST (thumb only), you will now connect the thumb back to the fingers – insert your hook into the stitch you pulled the string through on the fingers (Pic M2), SC in next 9 ST (fingers only) {26}

Free Crochet Snowman Pattern – Assembly

Hat: Pin the hat to the head first making sure that it fits tight. Sew the hat to the head. You will need to bend the back of the hat and stitch it to the back or side of the head to stay in shape.

Nose: Pin the nose to the head first making sure that it is centered between the eyes. Sew the nose to the head and add more stuffing if needed. I placed the nose between R50 and R54 of the head.

Arms: Pin the arms to the body in a forward facing angle (at about 45°) making sure both arms are symmetrical from the front and back. Sew the arms to the body. I placed them between R31 and R37 of the body.

Mouth embroidery and cheeks: Embroider the mouth using a long piece of black thread yarn – I embroidered the mouth between R47 and R50 with 7 STs in between the corners of the mouth. Paint the cheeks with a crayon or a make-up blush.

Buttons and scarf: Sew a couple of black buttons onto the belly and tie the scarf around the neck.
