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.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Two small black buttons
– Tapestry Needle
Magic Ring Tutorial
SC = Single Crochet

Sarah – Thank you for such an adorable snowman square! I have been gathering a collection of patterns to make a baby blanket with each 6 inch square a different pattern. I have animals and various shapes that a baby would learn to identify as he grows, No recipient in mind – just to have for someone special. You have added many of the patterns to my collection, and I must say that I love your style and your creativity. Thanks ever so much!
Lovely! I was looking for a winter kind of crochet…for after all the christmas deco
