Before we dive into the pattern, let’s take a moment to familiarize ourselves with some of the crochet abbreviations we’ll be using:

R – round/row
sc – single crochet
inc – increase (2 sc in same stitch)
dec – invisible decrease
ch – chain stitch
slst – slip stitch
st (sts) – stitch (stitches)

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Yarn: Cotton 8/4

  • Stuffing (fiberfill)
  • Markers, needle and scissors

The Pattern


Start by creating the snowman’s head using white yarn. Follow these rounds:

R1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
R2: inc in all (12)
R3: [sc, inc] x 6 (18)
R4: [sc, inc, sc] x 6 (24)
R5: [3 sc, inc] x 6 (30)
R6: [2 sc, inc, 2 sc] x 6 (36)
R7: [5 sc, inc] x 6 (42)
R8-14: sc in all (42)
R15: [5 sc, dec] x 6 (36)
R16: [2 sc, dec, 2 sc] x 6 (30)
R17: [3 sc, dec] x 6 (24)


R18: BLO [sc, dec, sc] x 6 (18)
R19: dec in all (9)

Fasten off

Facial features

Next, create the snowman’s facial features. For the nose, use orange yarn.

R1: 4 sc in magic ring (4)
R2: sc in all (4)

After you’ve completed the nose, fasten off and sew it to the face.

Embroider the eyes in round 10 and the cheeks between rounds 11 and 12. Use brown yarn to embroider French knots to form the smile.


Now, it’s time to crochet the snowman’s hat. Start with green yarn and follow these rounds:

R1: 8 sc in magic ring, slst in first st (8)
R2: inc in all (16)
R3: [sc, inc] x 8 (24)
R4-6: BLO sc in all (24)

Change to color black

R7: BLO sc in all (24)

Change to color green

R8: BLO [sc, inc, sc] x 8 (32)
R9: BLO inc in all (64)

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing to head. There is no need to stuff but if you want you can stuff lightly.


Finally, crochet the collar with red yarn. Pull up a loop in any of the front loops of R18 from the head and follow this pattern:

R1: [ch 4, slst in next] x 24 (24 ch4)
