Crochet snowman wearing a green crochet scarf.

JASPER THE SNOWMAN

Christmas is literally around the corner! I am looking forward to Christmas makes because it really is one of my favorite holidays. Just ask my four extra-large bins in my attic waiting for me to open them and decorate! I started the holiday makes with a snowman because they are my favorite! I have lived in the south my whole life and the one time it snows in Texas I miss it! But I do love the idea of snow. One day I will wake up to a white Christmas. Until then I am making a crochet snowman! This little guy works up just like my other amigurumi, from the bottom up. I have links down below for you to help with the joining of the legs.  He works up pretty quick for an amigurumi. My little Jasper measures 6.5 inches tall, but keep in mind that it also depends on the yarn I am using, it will make the amigurumi a tad bigger if I used a different brand. Here I am mostly using Impeccable yarn by Loops and Thread that I purchased myself from Michaels.

Read Before beginning

  • STITCH MARKER – You will be working in rounds so keep a stitch marker close to use when working up the doll. Unless otherwise stated to CH and turn. They will mark the 1st st of each round. I use scrap yarn pieces.
  • TENSION – Make sure you use a tight enough tension to help close any “holes” a loose tension may cause. I crochet yarning under then Over to create a tighter stitch. Go down a hook size if needed. ( my tension is naturally tight)
  • PATTERN- (EX. *SC in 8, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (36) ) You will end that round with the second step of what that round instructs. This will vary.
  • ASSEMBLY – The amigurumi is worked up by first making two legs then joining together. I have a YOUTUBE VIDEO on how to do that. Then you work up the body and head. Other body parts are made and sewn on after. https://youtu.be/h4A5-Lm-yPM
  • POLY- FIL – Stuff using small amounts at a time so it doesn’t create dense spots. Add a little extra in the neck area for support.

Weave through the front loops of all 8 sts, pull to close the center, secure with a knot, and weave in the end.

Nose – Orange yarn + small amount of poly-fil

Stuff as you go, a little bit goes a long way so it still has movement.

Fasten off and leave a long enough tail to sew on the snowman’s face between rounds 32 & 31.

(if sewing goes lower than row 31, it’s ok)

6 SC in MC

Close the opening by crocheting 3 stitches across the top, holding the opening closed. Making it easier to sew on the side of the body

Buttons – Make 2 – Black yarn

5 SC in MC

Fasten off leaving a long enough tail to sew on the belly.

Make sure they are approximately 4 rounds below the neck to make room for the scarf.

Scarf

CH 5

Row 1 – SC in the 2nd st from the hook and across the next 3 ch’s. (4) CH 1, turn.

Rows 2 -50 – SC across (4) CH 1, turn.

Fasten off and weave in both ends of the scarf.

Wrap the scarf around the neck as shown in the picture. Take a piece of yarn of the same color as the scarf and stitch the scarf together towards the back. To make sure it stays put, take your needle and make sure to thread it through the body to secure it. Make a knot, fasten off and weave in the end.

Blush on cheeks – Optional

I used cosmetic grade blush along with a small brush to apply, in small amounts at a time, blush to the face.

It will fade away with time so make sure you take the time and slowly work the product into the fibers little by little.

Another option for a more lasting blush is acrylic paint. I have not yet tried this myself but I would practice on a gauge swatch and use it a little at a time as well and water it down so the color isn’t overpowering.
