Tis the season for snowmen! Let’s be honest, any time is a good time for snowman themed projects. They are so cute and irresistible! I’ve come up with some snowman heads (based on my Snowman Sack pattern) and they are so versatile that I think you could use them for many different projects. I have a specific project in mind and will show you that soon…But just to throw out some ideas, you could use these as bunting/garland, interior decor, little plush toys – especially if you crochet a body and make them a bigger snowman, hanging charms/oversized keychains, ornaments, lovey blanket topper, game of toss or snowball fight, and much more! Use any color for the hats and make lots of these for the holidays!
Finished size is approximately 4×4 inches. So the pictures might be a little deceiving as they make them look a bit smaller than they actually are. No worries, go down a hook size or two and try using a thinner weight yarn (like Caron Simply Soft instead of Bernat Super Value) if you want them to be a better size for an ornament or keychain!
I don’t usually do this, but I went ahead and made a video tutorial! I figured that there were so many little details (like the smile and the hat tail) that I wanted to show you, a video would be best. So sorry for a few interruptions from my kids. I did try to crochet almost all the way through this project from start to finish! Hope this helps! Written pattern is included below as well!
