I whipped up these guys to have for my five dollar table at festivals. They did great last Saturday! I plan on making more for the next one in a few weeks just in time for Christmas.

Please show me all the snowmen you make by tagging me in instagram at safehaven_studio and be sure to check out my ko-fi for some of my paid patterns!

Start with the Head in White

The ridges are where you crocheted into the Back Loop of row 14. It helps create a flat bottom.

R1: Ch 20 stitches.
FO and pin to neck so the edges of the scarf cross slightly to the right and isn’t perfectly center.
Weave yarn tails through the ends of the scarf, being careful not to pull too tight and bunch them up. Use the tails to sew the scarf around the neck. Now you’re done!
