Mr Snowtastic stands approximately14 inches/35 ½ cm high to the tip of his hat.

At the end of the pattern, you will find a printable Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas banner. I used photo paper to print this out on; however, you could use card or good quality printing paper.

This is an clearly written, easy to follow pattern. Mr Snowtastic is knitted flat on straight needles. The pattern contains many photo’s to help you along the way.

Gauge is not important, but for guidance, on stocking stitch pieces using 3mm needles I knitted to 7st and 9 rows to an inch.

If you do not wish to use a soft fleece yarn, you can just knit those pieces using white DK and do Garter stitch. (Every row knit)
