Snowmen: Lumpy, Rosy and Slim
Use up your stash and knit these clever little snowmen just in time for the holiday season. Knit them as gift toppers, ornaments or just to decorate your house this season.
Slim is our tall gentlemen snowman donning his top hat and i-cord scarf and stands approximately 4” tall after felting. Rosy is a petite, curvaceous snow-woman off to somewhere special with her capelet and earmuffs. She stands approximately 3.25” tall after felting. And our most famous snowman of all is Lumpy. He has worked so hard picking out his favorite holiday gifts this season he has started to melt a little, but he still proudly wears his beanie and scarf to keep the chill on. Finished size is 3.25” after felting.
Shown in Palette White for the bodies, Black for Slim’s top hat and Navy for his i-cord scarf. Garnet Heather for Rosy’s earmuffs and capelet. And Ivy and Turmeric for Lumpy’s beanie and scarf.
