Or Fred to his friends.

He’s a very happy chap.

He’s great for using up odd bits of yarn and only takes a couple of hours to create. Skills required are knitting in the round, increasing and decreasing stitches so he would be ideal for an advanced beginner. Use sock yarn for a mini snowman or chunky yarn for a huge one, just remember that your gauge needs to be tight enough that no stuffing will show through. This would make a lovely gift for a child but make sure you use safety eyes or glue on felt facial features.

I’ve also done some photo tutorials for making a small sachet to give him a bit of weight and for mini pompoms!
