He is small, friendly and done super quickly with this crochet pattern – your next little snowman. You can use him as cheeky Christmas decoration for your Christmas tree or as individual gift tag. As he is so small you can even put him into the advent calendar of your kids giving it a very personal touch. But enough with ideas how to use him, let’s start to work on your sweet snowman:

Abbreviations:

bpsc – back past single crochet

ch – chain

dec – decrease

inc – increase

sc – single crochet

sl – sling stitch

You’ll need:

Less than half a skein of white yarn

bits and pieces in orang, grey, a clour of your choice for the scarf and black

Crochet hook, which is slightly too small for your yarn (I use 2,5 when 3,5 is recommended)

Soft filling

Scissors, needle and everything you need to have a cozy crochet (for my part, it certainly would be a caramel macchiato)
