Did you know I have a YouTube Channel? Probably not, because I just started really using it! I’ve been getting a lot of requests for video tutorials so in addition to my blog posts and written patterns I am diving into the world of YouTube! I have a lot to learn about making full video tutorials but luckily my friend Kristen from GoodKnitKisses was in California this past weekend at YouTube Studios LA. I met up with her and we collaborated on the filming of these adorable Gingerbread Heads! She has already taught me so much and I can’t wait to bring you many more crochet video tutorials! Be sure to subscribe to RepeatCrafterMe on YouTube HERE and also subscribe to GoodKnitKisses HERE.
I had such a great reaction from my Snowman Heads that I thought, hmmm I could easily adapt this pattern into a Gingerbread Head! So let me walk you through the entire pattern with the help of GoodKnitKisses – and I hope you enjoy some of our giggles and outtakes 🙂 You can find the Crochet Snowman Head Pattern HERE.

This photo is eye opening for me. Kristen’s Gingerbread head is the first one in the photo. Much smaller than the ones I crocheted! This confirms that I am in fact a loose crocheter and I need to keep that in mind when I am posting my patterns.
These heads would make an adorable ornament, gift topper, tablescape decor, plushie (make a body for it!), bunting, mantel decor, wreath embellishment, door decor (tie to a door knocker) and more!!
