Miniature Snowman (crochet)


I didn't have a pattern for this guy- he is all from my head while sitting and watching Hallmark Channel for 3 hours HAHA. (24 hours a day of Christmas stuff will have you making snowmen, too...)

I basically started making a "ball" and after you start tapering it down, instead of closing it up- start bringing it back out again to make the second snowball. Make it a little bigger than the first one..then taper it down and close it off (after stuffing). He is approximately 2 1/2 inches tall.

I used embroidery thread to do the coal and nose and the tassels on the scarf. The rest of the scarf, hat, and snowman was using size #3 crochet thread and an "E" hook. Altogether I would say it took me about 3 hours or so to make...that was with several laundry, bathroom and snack breaks. :P

He is so cute! I think I am going to have to make a set of ornaments for my tree. I mad a couple applique style animals for the kids this year... but I may have to make some thread ones. :-D

Thank you guys :D I love snowman stuff..you can make them so different every time and still never run out of new ones! :) The fireplace mantle idea is pretty good- I might have to think about that one. Although one made of all these guys would take until NEXT Christmas to finish hahaha.
