Crochet Snowman Applique Pattern

This cute little crochet snowman would make a perfect appliqué on a winter hat but also a wonderful ornament, magnet, or pin. The appliqué measures approx. 3″ x 2″. I tried to make this pattern as simple as possible by making the body one piece, but you will still need to sew on the other elements. I hope everyone is looking forward to the winter season as much as I am! Happy Holidays!


Yarn (You will only need small amounts of White, Black, Blue, Red and Orange)
Size H hook for Body
Size F hook for the rest of the pieces
Tapestry needle

Magic Ring: You can find a wonderful tutorial by Petals to Picots which includes pictures and video HERE
Ch = Chain
Sl St = Slip Stitch
SC – Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet

    these are adorable and so easy to make. i am a novice in the crocheting dept and loved the way the body was one piece – very clever. i used small black beads for the eyes and buttons and an orange bead for the nose. i don't have any black yarn and didn't want to buy any. the beads look very nice and take no time to sew on – i used thread for that. i also tacked the scarf down with invisible thread – one stitch near the bottom of each end to hold it down and to hold the scarf on as i am giving a few of these for christmas gifts. tks for this pattern – i will be a hit on christmas day.
