Everyone loves an adorable snowman! But who wants to be told exactly what your snowman should look like? Not me!

That’s why I created the Build Your Own Snowman pattern… a 17-page pattern (complete with step-by-step photos) full of awesome snowman options! This snowman will be about 8.5” tall when crocheted with a worsted weight yarn, depending on your hat option.

To complete your own amazing snowman, you’ll need:

  • 140-170 yards of white worsted weight yarn (exact amount varies according to the options you choose, samples shown in Ella Rae Classic Wool and Spud and Chloe Sweater)
  • 40-130 yards of red
  • 0-110 yards of black
  • 10 yards of orange
  • A size H (5.0mm) crochet hook (or size required for a nice-looking fabric)
  • Pair of 12mm black craft eyes
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Polyester stuffing
  • Locking stitch marker (for counting rounds, optional)

Depending on your option, you’ll need:

  • 4x4” piece of cardboard (for Frosty’s top hat)
  • 6 6mm black craft eyes (for Parson’s coal smile)
  • 2 12mm black craft eyes (for Parson’s coal buttons)

Can you single crochet? Then you can make this snowman! Skills required:

  • single crochet
  • increasing
  • decreasing
