Crochet Snowman Hat Pattern


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. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to e-mail at RepeatCrafterMe@gmail.com





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.




Materials:
White Chunky Yarn 
Worsted Weight Yarn in an accent color (like red) and black for the top hat
Size I hook
Tapestry Needle
Poly-fil
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.

    3. I have a free program called CutePDF. When I find a pattern that I like that is not available in PDF, I print it to this program and it turns it into a PDF file. Once installed, the program shows up as a printer in your printer selections.

  90. Thank you so much for your patterns. I LOVE this hat! I have been looking at the pattern for a while but didn't have a reason to make it. I don't wear winter hats myself, and my son (4.5) is in love with his Mickey Mouse hat I made from your pattern, lol. Our church does an event every year where we give away hats/coats/mittens/ etc. to families in need, so this year I've decided to start early and make several of these hats to donate! I will try to send you photos when I have them all done :)

  92. I love this hat SOOO much!!! After I had made my first snowman hat, and hadn't even had a chance to add on the face (I only had the tophat) my closest friends asked me again and again to make them one!! My Mom even joined in saying that she would love to have one as well because she found it "incredibly comfortable" and loved how it got so well that it didn't even mess up her hair!! I have since made 5 snowman hats, all as Christmas gifts! :) One Red: For me! One Hot Pink: for my best friend. One Light Pink: for my Mom. One Royal Blue: for my best friends sister. One Purple: for my other friend. This makes for the best gift EVER!! I love how you can toy with the colors and am thinking of creating a hat for myself in my High Schools Team colors :) Thanks a thousand times!! =D

  95. Hello from Iceland...where there is always lots of snow in the winter time :) I´m definately going to make this for our first baby due in February! I already made your puppy hat and your penguin hat and they are adorable! Thank you so much for sharing your patterns. When people ask me if I made the hats I always mention your website!

  97. I love these patterns! What is your gauge? I'm wondering about the length of the main/white part from crown to edge.

  98. Love these snowman hats however babies aren't suppose to have buttons that they can pull off and choke on potentially so I'm probably going to sew eyes all out of yarn for my 8 month old niece.

  105. Hi I am new to your site and tried out the owl hat pattern and was wondering for the snowman pattern if there was a way to make the hats even smaller. I am a nurse in the NICU and would love to make them for the babies to wear when they come out for cuddles with their moms to keep them warm. Since the babies are very small the newborn size is way too big. Could you please help me with this,thanks

    If you could respond to my email at puzzlingrn@hotmail.com I would appreciate it.

  106. I am a nurse working in the NICU and would love to make the snowman hats for the little babies to wear when they come out for cuddles to keep them warm. The newborn size is too big and was wondering if you could help me figure out how to make them smaller. Not sure how many stitches fewer I need to do to make it happen. thanks for your help
