Crochet some adorable Snowman baubles for your Christmas tree, or as little festive gifts!

You can use any yarn weight or type for this pattern. I have used Paintbox Yarns Simply range acrylic yarns. Different yarn weights will produce different sized baubles.
Here is a size guide of approximate finished diameters:
DK/Light Worsted yarn with a 4mm hook = 2”
Aran/Worsted yarn with a 5mm hook = 2.5”
Chunky/Bulky yarn with a 6mm hook = 3”

These baubles only use a small amount of yarn each. Approximately 20yds for the head and less than 10yds of 2 colours for the hat, and a small amount for the face.

I have used safety eyes in various sizes, from 6mm to 10mm. Choose any size you find suitable for your head size.

Gauge is not too important. Just try to keep your stitches fairly tight, so that your stuffing doesn’t show through. For best results, stick with the same yarn brand for your head and hat.

You will need:
Any yarn in White, Orange, and any 2 hat colours (use the same yarn weight for each bauble).
A small amount of thin Black or Pink yarn for the mouth (or you can split the plies of thicker yarn).
A suitable hook size for your yarn.
Safety eyes (6-10mm).
Toy stuffing (polyester fibrefill).
A stitch marker.
Yarn needle, and scissors.
