I got an e-mail from a reader asking if I could make a Crochet Snowman the same size as my Crochet Gingerbread so they could alternate them on some holiday garland. I thought this was a fabulous idea! So I updated my Crochet Snowman Applique into more of an ornament size!! And the two Christmas Buddies look so adorable together 🙂 Get the Gingerbread Man pattern HERE. The Snowman Pattern is written below!
I was debating on whether the snowman should have a top hat or wear earmuffs. So I took this question to Facebook and it sounds like you guys like the earmuffs the best! But don’t worry, I will post patterns for both options!
