it is december 1st and that means gift knitting season is upon us! there's still time to cast on a few projects before christmas, and plenty of time to make a few knit snowmen ornaments using my free pattern!
if you're not a knitter, no worries...you can purchase a ready-made snowman ornament from my shop!
these snowmen are knit in the round in one piece and are easy and fast to make. use up scraps of worsted or fingering weight yarn for the cozy scarf embellishment! add these to your tree, give as a gift, or use as a present topper.
size us 6 (4.0 mm) double-pointed needles
worsted weight yarn in white (i like patons classic worsted wool in aran)
contrast yarn (black or brown for eyes and mouth, worsted or fingering weight scraps for the scarf)
orange felt (to make carrot nose, or use orange yarn to knit one!)
sewing needle and orange thread (for felt nose)
