Notes for the Crochet Snowman Pattern

Since this is worked continuously, a ch 1 at the beginning of the round is not needed. It is helpful to place a stitch marker on the first stitch of each round.

The colorways for this pattern are written as:
Oyster Heather or Camel Heather Yarn - Color A
White Yarn held together with Aloft lace white yarn - Color B
Persimmon Heather / Orange- Color C
Graphite Heather - Color D

Special Stitches:
Cross stitch single crochet: this variation of a crochet stitch works the stitch tighter and creates an ‘X’ on the front of the stitch. To work a single crochet stitch this way, insert your hook into the stitch, yarn under, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through both loops on the hook. This way of working the single crochet stitch is used for the hat and the body.

Magic Circle: Start by creating a loop with your yarn. The tail of the working yarn will be over the working end. Insert your hook into the loop from behind. Yarn over and pull through the loop. Ch 1, Work all of your indicated stitches into the loop. Pull the tail end of your yarn to close the loop. Pull firmly to fasten the loop closed, this end will be weaved in and fastened off.

sc2tog invisible decrease: Insert your hook into the flo of the next stitch, insert your hook into the flo of the next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and complete stitch.

Want to make this amigurumi doll bigger?

The beautiful thing about amigurumi is it can be made in any size. Here is how you would change the size of this crochet snowman.

Start by increasing or decreasing the size of your hook. This will affect the tension of your stitches, so when making larger items, use a bigger hook size, and for smaller items use a smaller one. Experiment until you get the right size and tension that works for you!

Choose a thicker yarn for larger projects and thinner for smaller ones. These snuggly snowmen can be made in any color scheme, so have fun playing around with different colors to make them unique! With these tips in mind, it's easy to create amigurumi pieces that are perfect for your project.

Crocheting an amigurumi snowman is a delightful and fulfilling creative pursuit that embodies the joy, magic, and warmth of the winter season.
