It is an easy and free pattern for a mini Snowman that has a cute little hat and a colorful scarf and button eyes. His body and head are made as one piece. 

 

I tried 2 different hats and couldn't decide which one is the best - there is a pattern for both - try Elf style or Santa style hats!

 

He is so sweet with his Santa hat and little carrot nose. This snowman is perfect for the Christmas spirit.

 

I have used an amigurumi yarn, but different yarn weights will produce different sized snowmen.

A crochet decrease makes the current row or round that you are working on shorter than the one previous to it.

2.  Yarn over and draw through the loop.

3.  Do not complete the stitch as normal.

4.  Instead, insert the hook into the next stitch.

5.  Yarn over and draw through the loop.

6.  There should now be three loops on your hook

7.  Yarn over and draw through all three loops on the hook

8.  You should now have two single crochet stitches side-by-side, joined together into one stitch at the top.

 

This pattern requires familiarity with stitches used, attaching yarn, changing yarn colors, sewing parts together with a sewing needle.

CROCHET MINI SNOWMAN PATTERN NOTES

1) A ch1 at beg of the row DOESN'T count as a stitch

2) Magic ring = the starting point for crocheting in a spiral. Use which ever method you prefer.

3) Continuous rounds - HEAD + BODY, HAT parts are worked up in continuous rounds, which means that you will not be joining the last stitch of the round with the first one. Instead you will need to keep track of where each round started and how many stitches you have made because after each round you will continue right on to the stitches of the next round (with no join). It is useful to use a stitch marker or piece of yarn to mark the start or end of each round.

4) Working in rows - SCARF part is worked in rows. When you reach the end of row, chain, turn your work and continue working in stitches from the previous row.

4) ( ) – The number of stitches that should be in a completed round/row are placed in brackets at the end of that round’s/row’s instructions.

5) This CROCHET MINI SNOWMAN Amigurumi measures:

3 inch / 7.5 cm tall

2.5 inch / 6.5 cm wide 

The finished size will depend on what yarn you use, as well as your tension and hook (as with any amigurumi).

img_5751.jpeg

6) You can make the CROCHET MINI SNOWMAN Amigurumi bigger with a thicker yarn or a larger hook size.

7) There is just minimal sewing, you will only sew the nose on the head, the hat on top of head - this is quick and easy to do, there are no tricks.

STUFFING

The exact moment for starting filling and stuffing the toy depends on every single person. I prefer filling the toy with the work almost finished. It’s a bit more difficult to fill, but more comfortable to crochet. You should make proofs until finding the more suitable moment of filling for you.

 

NOSE
colour D
With a tapestry needle, embroider the nose on the head, embroider the nose as a triangle shape or heart shape around 3 crochet st. Start with the yarn between eyes across the 3 stitches in the rows below. Wrap yarn 3 times so the nose puffs out from the head.
