Happy Button Snowman | Free Crochet Pattern | Winter | Christmas | Toy | Amigurumi | Rag Doll | Softie | Softy | Frosty the Snowman | Cute & Cozy Crochet | Fun Pattern | Intermediate Pattern | For Kids | Christmas | Holiday

I have wanted to make a snowman for months! I had the idea in my head back in August, but waited until now to actually put it into action. The greatest part was that I already had all the yarn I needed, because the colors are so basic! White, black, orange, green, pink, purple. No problem!

Anyway, I started this project, (which really doesn’t take that long) about a month ago…then my babies got sick. Poor things! And I got sick. So, crochet kind of went on the back burner while I nursed my sweet girls (and myself) back to health. Now we’re all better and feeling so thankful! Especially me, since I can finally crochet again!

I was so worried I wouldn’t get this done before Christmas, but look at this: I’m done almost 2 weeks before! Now I can send it off to the sweet little girl I made it for.

This snowman is loosely based off of Frosty the Snowman. I decided to do a carrot nose instead of a button nose, because carrot noses just look cuter in my opinion. You’re definitely welcome to do a button nose, though! I absolutely love the scarf I made for this snowman, too. It turned out better than I thought it would!

It isn’t too late to whip this sweet little friend up before Christmas! You probably already have all the yarn you need, too! If not, head over to your favorite craft store and pick some up. I promise you  won’t be disappointed. Happy Crocheting!

Pattern Notes:

  • ch 1 will only be a turning chain and will NEVER count as a stitch
  • Though the body will be slip stitched together, the hat will be sewed together. This is to properly place the hat over the top of the head without causing great stress on the crocheter.
  • The hat will overlap the head. I have included a picture and will give details in the pattern on how to do this.
  • The carrot nose will be crocheted and then sewn on.
  • The mouth with be embroidered on in any way the crocheter finds fit. Mine turned out a bit crooked, but I thought it added a little character. You may do with the mouth as you please.
  • The scarf will be tied on after the body has been fully stuffed and slip stitched closed. It should be sewed down completely at this point.
  • Snowman measures approximately 15 inches tall with hat and 7 1/2 inches wide at the widest part of body.

Finish off and sew in ends on first panel. Sew eyes 8 rows down from top of head 5 stitches apart. Sew buttons on body at least 4 rows down from neck. Space each button 5 rows apart.

On second panel, slip stitch two panels together after face has been sewn and embroidered on. Stuff lightly.

Carrot Nose:

ch 6,

Row 1: sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across, ch 1, turn. (5)

Row 2-3: sc in each stitch across, ch 1, turn. (5)

Finish off, leaving a long tail. Sew in very center of face, 1 row down from eyes.

Embroider mouth/smile just below nose wherever you see fit. I started 6 stitches in from side and embroidered down 7 rows, stretching it all the way to 4 stitches in on other side.

Scarf:

ch 6,

Row 1: sc in 2nd chain from hook, sc in each chain across, ch 1, turn. (5)

Rows 2-120: sc in each stitch across, ch 1, turn.

*You do not need to crochet exactly 120 rows. Just crochet the scarf to be between 22″-24″. Check gauge for exact amount of rows.*

Wrap scarf around neck, tie on and sew flat. You can decide exactly how you want the scarf to look. Crocheter’s choice! 🙂

Hat:

ch 27,

Row 1: sc in 2nd chain from hook, sc in each chain across, ch 1, turn. (26)

Rows 2-4: sc in each stitch across, ch 1, turn. (26)

Row 5: sc in each stitch across. Finish off, sew in ends. (26)

Rows 7-13: sc in each stitch across, ch 1, turn. (20)

Row 14: 2sc in first stitch, sc 18, 2sc in last stitch, ch 1, turn. (22)

Row 15: sc in each stitch across. (22)

Finish off first panel and sew in ends.

Finish off second panel, leaving along tail for sewing. Sew 2 panels together after sewing on flower (see below).

*When sewing the bottom of the hat together, sew panels on either side of the snowman’s head about 3-4 rows down, depending on your preference. It is going to be easier to sew in with a yarn needle than slip stitch it on. Stuff lightly before sewing closed.*

Flower:

Ch 6, sl st into first chain to make a circle.

Round 1: ch 2 (counts as hdc), 2hdc, sl st in circle, *3hdc, sl st* in circle 4 times, sl st into top of chain to to join.

Round 2: ch 3 (counts as dc), 1 dc in same stitch, 2dc in each of the next 2 stitches, sl st into sl st from previous round, *2dc in each of the next 3 stitches, sl st into sl st from previous round* 4 times, sl st in top of ch 3 to join. Finish off, leaving along tail and sew onto side of hat.

Sew with a contrasting color in the center to add color variation.
