Keep your head cozy this winter with this adorable snowman hat! I have been working hard on this pattern and I hope you enjoy it! But please remember I am a full time mom and I crochet in my spare time. I am sharing this pattern with you for FREE. I originally created these hats for my sons, ages 1.5 and 3.5, who have head circumferences of approx. 19.5″ and 20.5″. Both of them fit into the preschooler size perfectly (The blue hat in the picture). I based the rest of the patterns off of what fits them and me. I worked up a 3-6 month size as well and it looked correct. I have not had anyone but myself test these patterns. Nor have I had the opportunity to have children and adults with different head sizes try on these hats. This is where I am going to lean on you! Please be my testers.

To hide your seam…
Start your rounds in the same stitch as your chain.
Join your rounds to the first DC, NOT the chain.
Your last stitch should be in the stitch before your chain.
Size I hook
Two medium/large size buttons (about 1″)
5 small buttons for the mouth
First lets talk about the yarns I used.
The main part of the hat (the white) uses chunky yarn. Specifically, I used Loops & Threads Charisma yarn in white. It is a 100% Acrylic Yarn, Bulky 5 weight, 3.5 oz. skein/ 109 yds. I purchased it at Michaels. This pattern will only work correctly if you use chunky yarn for the beanie and regular worsted weight yarn for the earflaps and tails. But if you are a more experienced crocheter, feel free to use other weight yarns and use this pattern as a guideline.
The earflaps, tails and pom poms and nose use Vanna’s Choice worsted weight yarn. The nose color is called Terracotta, the red is called Scarlet and blue is called Dusty Blue.
The small top hat uses Loops & Threads Impeccable in black. The consistency of this yarn is a little stiffer than most. So it works GREAT for embellishments that need to hold their shape. It is also the yarn I use for the ears on my Mickey and Minnie Mouse hats.
