Easy Crochet Snowman Ornament Free Pattern |

One of my favourite Christmas decorations are snowmen!  They make adorable decorations all through the winter not just at Christmas!  Years ago I created a cute little crochet snowman face, it can be used as a Christmas tree ornament or add a pin to the back to make a winter brooch.  My kids love these!  Another cute idea is to add magnets and use them on the fridge.


I originally posted this little crochet snowman in a Christmas post a few years ago.  But as I was making a few of these up the other day, I thought I would give him his own post and do a video to!

Gauge really isn’t important with this, but I was using worsted weight yarn and an H hook.  A note on the snowman’s hat, normally when you single crochet you chain 1.  In this pattern I chained 2, because I wanted the hat to be a “little” lopsided.  I wanted the effect of a snowman just made by children.  You know what I mean right?  By the time the hat gets on the top, it’s been much loved. lol  If you want a smooth and neat edge on your hat, then chain 1 instead!

White worsted weight yarn

Black worsted weight yarn

Crochet hook size H


Chain 4, join with a slip stitch.

1st Row work 10 dc in the center of ring.  Join to the first one with a sl.  Chain 3 turn.

2nd Row *Work 2 dc in first stitch, work 1 dc in next stitch. *  Repeat ** all the way around, join with sl.

Repeat row 2 until desired size is reached.  In my example I stopped after row 2.

Weave ends in.


Row 1 Chain 16, slip stitch back through all chains.  At the end slip stich backwards 4 stitches. Chain 2

Row 2 *Sc in 8 stitches.  Chain 2 turn.*

Repeat ** until hat is desired height.  Cut yarn, weave in ends and sew to snowman face.

I used google eyes and sequins for the mouth and nose.  However I think mini pompoms would be very cute to!
