Welcome to Week 2 of the snowman amigurumi crochet along! I’m happy that after this week, our snowmen will look more like snowmen and not just a white ball!
If you haven’t already, I’d love if you would join my Facebook group and share your work. Feel free to ask any questions when you’re there! The group is super helpful, encouraging, and kind!
For Week 2/part 2 of this snowman CAL, we will be working on the middle snowball and the head along with attaching the buttons and face.
If you would like to work ahead or would like a printable PDF copy of the pattern, you can purchase it on Ravelry here.
You will find the free pattern for Part 1 and the video tutorial below.
Full Materials List
Worsted weight yarn in white (approx 215 yards) – I used 1 skein Loops&Threads Impeccable
Worsted weight yarn in red, green, orange, brown, and black (small amounts) for snowman accessories, face, and arms
G/4.00 mm hook
H/5.00 mm hook
1 pound poly-fil fiber stuffing
(2) 1″ buttons and needle&thread to attach
(2) 12mm safety eyes
1 pipe cleaner cut in half
Stitch Marker (optional – can substitute by using a piece of yarn)
Pom pom maker (optional)
Gauge 2” x 2” in SC = 9st x 10 rows in SC
Snowman will be worked from the bottom up.
Rounds of the snowman will be worked in a continuous round.
Use stitch marker/piece of yarn to mark what round you are on.
Snowman will be stuffed as you work. (Pattern will tell you when to stuff.) Stuff as much as you can as the poly-fil will tend to settle.
Invisible sc decrease: work a regular sc decrease except work them in the front loops only, this will create a cleaner look.
MR = Magic ring, Ch = chain, SC = single crochet, DC = double crochet, st = stitch(es), invisible sc dec = invisible single crochet decrease, FPDC = front post double crochet, BPDC = back post double crochet
