Snowman Ornament

IMG_0168

I absolutely love snowmen. I also love that they’re a decoration you could leave up all winter. My crocheted Christmas tree really needed to have a snowman on it, so I worked up this quick little snowman to hang on there.

This pattern is so fast to make, and it doesn’t use much yarn at all.

Abbreviations:

ch: chain

sl st: slip stitch

Materials needed:

Any worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver.
