The first day of winter calls for something seasonal, something snowy… like a Crochet Snowman Square! The added embellishments make it a bit more work than your average granny square, but definitely worth it! It would be great paired with solid squares or snowflake squares. Or continue the border and make a large pillow cushion! You could also make the square bigger by using a larger hook and chunky yarn. I like to think that a few of you will make a blanket with snowmen wearing different color hats. Please share with me if you do!
-Worsted Weight Yarn in white, red, and blue with a bit of orange and black for embellishments. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in White, Scarlet, Aqua (from the baby line), and a bit of Terracotta orange.
