Snowman Ornament Crochet Pattern


Crochet snowman ornament

Let’s get this party started! We’re kicking off Day 1 of the 12 Days of Crochet Christmas event with this cute little snowman ornament crochet pattern.

I love snowmen despite living in NZ and enjoying a Summer Christmas. My parents are both from England and growing up we would always watch The Snowman movie and play the board game around the holidays.

NOTES

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 2.75″ (7cm) tall when using the materials listed.

Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.

Gauge is not important in this pattern. Use a hook size to match your chosen yarn. Make sure that your stitches are tight enough to prevent stuffing showing through and adjust hook size if necessary.
