Mini Snowman Christmas Ornament

These little guys are SO CUTE!! They're probably the smallest snowman you can make out of worsted weight yarn (and I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn on these guys), at 3 inches tall! Decorate your tree or give them as gifts!

Stitch in place

Round 1: In magic ring, sc 6. Do not join, work in rounds (6)
Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12)
Round 3-6: sc in each sc around (12)
Stitch in place (tilt it so that the back part of the hat is touching the back of the scarf, allowing a small portion of face to show.)

After securing hat and scarf, carefully stitch eyes onto face.

Tie the orange string into a knot, but do not pull it completely tight. Then stitch the knot onto the face, tying an additional knot on top to keep it in place.


  1. These are really cute, and I want to make them but am confused by what '(sc dec, sc in each st)' means exactly - decrease by a single chain in each ... not sure what st means?
    And, on the scarfs, did you just weave a contrast color through to get two tones?
    Thanks. :)

  2. Sabrina, that "each" in row 5 & 14 should be "next". "st" just means stitch. so that line means to single crochet decrease, then single crochet and repeat that around the round.

    For the scarves, I surface crocheted on the back (I prefered the look of the lines rather than the crochet). A tutorial on that can be found here:

  3. Thanks so much! I looked at the surface crochet and it looks pretty easy. I'm excited to make some of these cute guys. :)

  4. So sweet! Thanks so much for sharing.

  5. hi, they look so qute! go from 12 to 8 to 6...doesn't make sense to me...
    Round 3-4: sc in each sc around (12)Got it.
    Round 5: (sc dec, sc in next st) around (8)? must be 6?
    Stuff head
    Round 6: (sc dec, sc in next 2 sts) around (6)?must be 4?

    greetings, Margriet

  8. Thank you for leaving this pattern up for those who just now found your page!!!

    1. Kim, Do you have and crochet patters of any kid of chicken or some other kind of animals? If so would you send them to me or post? Please THANKS

  9. How cute! These snowmen look terrific! Thank you very much! :)

  10. It's hard for me to read patterns so I usually crochet from just looking at the picture. Cor the one.perso n who asked about the numbers...the last numbering () is how many stitches there should be in each row. This makes if easier to kow if you are feading the direction correctly, by knowing how many stitches are needed in each row. Once you start crocheting more, things will become much easier and lots of fun.

  11. Ive made snowmen before too but not as cute as yours. I do use red or green for the scarves tho.
