Snowman Crochet christmas ornaments.

SNOWMAN CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT

It will be Thanksgiving in a few days but I couldn’t wait another week to release this snowman christmas ornament! Do you have littles who love to explore and are curious about those shiny ornaments on the tree? My four year old still loves to rearrange them and I thought, why not make her some kid friendly ones that are safe and will be cherished for years to come! They are also great for those of you who have markets around this time of year! They work up quick and they don’t have to be ornament they can be little pocket snowman pals to keeps the kids’s hands busy at markets while mom and dad shop! IYKYK! You can also watch a voice over video of certain clips of the process of the snowman to the finished result. My YouTube Channel

Materials

  • E 3.50 mm crochet hook
  • Medium Worsted weight (#4) yarn

I used :

  • Impeccable by Loops and thread in color Aran
  • Orange yarn for the nose – carrot buttons would be cute too! 
  • Black yarn for mouth & eyes
  • Scarf color of your choice I used pink and purple from hobby lobby I love this yarn
  • Same two colors were used for the buttons.
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Poly-fil
  • Ribbon or thread for hanging the ornament. I used crochet thread for my ornament but ribbon or any kind of yarn works great!

Note: I used hobby lobby yarn for the pink and purple and red heart shimmers for the green. same weight but the green was definetly thinner and that’s why it may look shorter. You can knot the scarf like I did or also have the option to overlap the both ends and sew them flat if scarf is too short as well.

Read Before beginning

  • TENSION – Make sure you use a tight enough tension to help close any “holes” a loose tension may cause. I crochet yarning under to create a tighter stitch. Go down a hook size if needed. ( my tension is naturally tight). both panels may curl up but they will be single crocheted together so it’s okay.
  • 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 – I will have a video on my youtube channel showing you some of the processes of making, stuffing, and finishing assembling the snowman ornament. https://www.youtube.com/arianahall
  • POLY- FIL – Stuff using small amounts at a time so it doesn’t create dense spots.
Pin this for later! 🙂

Fasten off the first panel made. Do not fasten off the second panel of the snowman body.

Assembly:

After finishing your second panel go ahead and embroider the nose, eyes, mouth and ending with the buttons as shown in the pictures. Make sure to secure with a knot i the back so everything stays in place.

Place the first panel you made behind the second panel, snowman facing you, and start to single crochet down the left side of the snowman to connect them and make a pocket where you will be stuffing as you go. In the video I show you that I single crochet around the snowman and stop when I get to the other side of the snowman right below the top button and start to fill with poly-fil. Make sure to stuff the corners well. I work the edge closing up the snowman and stop about 2 more times to continue to suff until I am happy with it, I then slip stitch to the first single crochet made, I fasten off and weave in the end.

Place the scarf made and make a knot to secure it in place. Other option is you could overlap the ends and sew it flat if you would like.
