Snowman Crochet Pattern

Snowman Appliqué With Printable
Christmas Gift Tags

Looking for a simple snowman crochet pattern?

If you're anything like me, it's about this time every year that I think of what I could crochet as a cute little addition to the handmade Christmas gifts I make.  Snowman crochet pattern
This year, I opted for a tiny little snowman appliqué to add to my gift tags.

I wrote up the Snowman Appliqué Crochet Pattern  so I could share it with you!

It's one that works up really quick and I think would look really sweet on your wrapped Christmas gifts.

Materials

Yarn (small amounts of White, Black, Red & Orange - Worsted weight)

Hook Size: 3.5 mm (size E)

Tapestry needle

Gift Tags: Either blank store bought ones (recycled cardstock would be nice!) or you can print the ones I designed for you here on some nice cardstock.

Finished Size

The finished size of this snowman will be H:7.5cm x W:3.5cm (H:2.9 inches x W:1.2 inches) & should fit perfectly onto your printed gift tags

Gauge

I used the body to measure Gauge: 3 rounds = 3.5cm (1.2 inches)

Difficulty Level

Beginner

Abbreviations (US Terms)

Magic Circle: If you don’t yet know how to make a Magic Circle, have a look at this post to learn how.

Ch = Chain

Sl St = Slip Stitch

SC – Single Crochet

French Knot (optional) (If you’d like to learn how to make a French Knot, watch this tutorial here).

Stitch How-To Instructions

Instructions for Ch (Chain):
Bring the yarn over the crochet hook from back to front and hook it. Draw hooked yarn through the loop of the stitch on your hook and up onto the working area of your hook.

Instructions for SC (Single Crochet):
Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (you now have two loops on hook), yarn over again and pull through both loops on hook (note: this is equivalent to the UK Double Crochet (DC) stitch). You may see the US/UK conversion sheet below.

Instructions for Sl St (Slip Stitch): Insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through your last stitch AND through the loop on your hook (through both stitches).

Instructions for Fastening Off: After the last stitch of the last round, cut the yarn, leaving a 6-inch end. Draw the cut end of your yarn completely through the stitch & pull to tighten knot.

Here you can get more clarity on how to crochet a flat circle with a single crochet stitch.

Notes

- Pattern is written in US crochet terms

- If you need more detailed instructions on how to work the required stitches, check out Annie’s Catalogue for visual instructions.

- You can make the pattern larger or smaller by changing the type of yarn and/or hook.

- Numbers at the end of each round [in brackets] indicate the number of final stitches in that round. Be sure to double check your stitch counts at the end of each round to ensure you get the snowman size correct.

- The head and body of the snowman are not worked in a continuous spiral circle. The Ch1 in each row does not count as a stitch. This little Ch1 serves as a visual marker only to help you keep track of the starting place of each round.

Lay your snowman head a little overlapped over his body, then lay the scarf on top

Use red yarn & a tapestry needle to sew your snowman scarf onto his head & body at the same time (to join all 3 pieces - head, body & scarf).

Snowman Nose: (Orange Yarn)

Make a French knot in the middle of the snowman’s face. (If you haven’t made a French Knot before, you can watch this good tutorial here)

Alternatively, you could just stitch two stitches diagonally at the center of the snowman’s face.

Snowman Eyes & Buttons: (Black yarn)

With your darning needle, stitch two small black eyes to the right & left of the nose.

Create 2 buttons on Snowman’s body by stitching two small stitches above each other with one stitch distance apart.
