Christmas is right around the corner! What better way to celebrate the holidays than to crochet yourself, or someone you love a cute little Snowman? Because it is so cold this winter, we need to make sure to bundle our snowmen up!
The finished size of your Snowman will be about 8 inches. Your size will vary depending on the yarn you choose, the crochet hook you choose, and your tension while crocheting. I used worsted weight yarn and a size D hook to get my Snowman to 8 inches.
I will post the pattern in pieces on Ravelry in pdf form and in my Ravelry Group.
Pieces of the CAL will be given daily as listed below…
Day #1 - Thursday, December 15th, 2016
