When our son was little he couldn’t say pronounce an “s” and an “n” next to each other - instead he would switch it around. As a result, “snowman” became “noseman”. So here is Noseman the Snowman! This project is knit flat and seamed up the back. Use your imagination and combine fun colors for his hat/scarf combination - great for gift giving using school colors! This is a fast knit as the yarn is held double to make the body of the snowman - you’ll want to make a whole bunch of “nosemen”!

The scarf, hat and nose are done with a single strand of yarn - be sure to note they use different needle sizes.

When knitting the snowman body and head, the increases are very rapid in the first few rows. It will feel a bit tight to work but will loosen up as you continue. Also, when you assemble the snowman (directions included in the pattern), remember that the top of the snowman’s head will be covered by the hat. You can use this area to secure the ends for your nose and eyes.
