Crafty Sassy – Top 10 Snowman Crochet Projects

Hey Dearies! Since it has been snowing quite a bit in Maine, I figured I would share some patterns for snowmen! Now, snowmen aren’t just for the Christmas season, since you can make them whenever it snows!

Note: These are NOT my own work, as I will be providing the link that goes with each free pattern. All rights go to the creators.

 1. Snowman Potholder

This snowman is so cute! Even though it says it’s for a potholder, but you can definitely make a few of these to add onto a snowflake or even Christmas blanket!

2. Snowman Coffee Cup Cozy

Again, as you know, I LOVE coffee cup cozies and this one is too cute not to make one for yourself or others! Most of the ones I’ve found didn’t have the cute little hat, but this one did!

Wall hangings are something I usually don’t have, but when I saw this pattern, I thought about making one for my house! As long as you keep this little guy inside, he will stay nice and neat, these are also perfect for those new homeowners!

I’m melting for this project! This is one I have never seen, but once I did, I was even more excited to see that the pattern was FREE! This little guy is not only the perfect decoration for the holiday season but he could even work as a newborn gift idea as a snuggle! As long as the buttons aren’t added!

Towel Toppers I just LOVE! This one really takes my breath away, with so much detail, I didn’t think it was free, but I had to double-check! The creator of this piece of work took such great time and detail to this project for sure, definitely going to put this on my list of stuff to make this year!

9. Snowman Hanging Towel

2020-01-07 (4).png

This towel hangs without a button, which is something that I have not quite tried, yet. This one has a lot of detail put into it, but this same pattern can be used to making Santa or a Gingerbread, but if you aren’t ready to start going down the Christmas train, this guy is something you’ll want to make for sure!

Last, but not least, one of the cutest stuffies I’ve ever seen! There are a few of stuffy snowmen and women, that you can choose to pick from, but this one looks so soft and cuddly, I just had to put him on this list!

Crafty Sassy: Crochet Adult Size Dragon Ball Z Goku Hat (Easy)

Hey dearies! Today I am back with a NEW pattern that I had to try and recreate. As you all know, some patterns can be available for a limited time or a price. A lot of creators rather create the items instead of having an option to buy the pattern.

Especially, if you know someone or really want something that they have created. Well, that’s what happened to me. As I was scrolling on Pinterest, I happened to see this hat set:2019-05-21.png

As soon as I saw it, I showed it to my fiance, who is a HUGE Dragon Ball Z fan and loved it! So, I looked into seeing if there was a pattern or someone who sells the pattern itself. Sadly, I didn’t get a pattern or couldn’t purchase a pattern.

When you can’t get a pattern, what do you do?

Recreate it, of course! Now, this was a simple recreate because the beanie is simple and those patterns are free, but I put a little twist to mine. I’m going to show you how to make the orange hat, the green one I am still currently looking for another pattern for the antenna’s, but once I do, I’ll have that pattern up for you all!

Let’s talk about what you will need:

  • Medium Size Yarn (In Orange, Black, and White)
    • I used Red Heart Super Saver Pumpkin, since I still have a huge skein of that left and same with the white.
    • I also used I Love This Yarn for the black, since I didn’t have any Red Heart in black.
  • 5.0mm
    • You can change the hook size to a 5.5mm or 6.0mm because the beanie will be really snug when it’s finished.
  • Sewing Needle
  • Scissors

*Note: This size fits an adult. My fiance’s head size is 21 inches, but I did adjust the pattern so that it wasn’t so tight. If anyone wants me to re-adjust the size if you want me to make one for the kiddos or baby sizes!

Let’s Begin!

-Hat-

Starting with the orange yarn, chain 5 and slip stitch in the first stitch chain to form a loop

Row 1: Chain 2. Make 10 double crochets in the loop. Join at the top of the first double crochet with a slip stitch. (10)

Row 2: Chain 2. Make two double crochets in each stitch. Join as you did before in row 1. (20)

Row 3: Chain 2. *Double crochet in the first stitch, Make 2 double crochets in the next stitch* Repeat * around. Join. (30)

Row 4: Chain 2. *Double crochet in the next 2 stitches, 2 double crochets in the next stitch* Repeat *around. Join. (40)

Row 5: Chain 2. *Double crochet in the next 3 stitches, 2 double crochets in the next stitch* Repeat * around. Join. (50)

Row 6: Chain 2. *Double crochet in the next 4 stitches, 2 double crochets in the next stitch* Repeat * around. Join. (60)

Row 7: Chain 2. * Double crochet in the next 5 stitches, 2 double crochets in the next stitch* Repeat * around. Join. (70)

Row 8: Chain 2. *Double crochet in the next 6 stitches, 2 double crochet in the next stitch* Repeat * around. Join. (80)

Row 9-15: Chain 2. Double crochet in each stitch. Join. (80)

Row 16-19: Switch to the black yarn. Chain 2. Double crochet in each stitch. Join. (80)

Row 20: Chain 1. Single crochet in each stitch. Join. Fasten off. (80)

Now that our hat is done, we need to create the circle part.

-Symbol Base (White circle)-

Grab the white yarn, chain 5 and slip stitch into the first chain to create a loop.

Row 1: Chain 2. Make 10 double crochets in the loop. Join. (10)

Row 2: Chain 2. Make 2 double crochets in every stitch. (20)

Row 3: Chain 2. *Double crochet in the first stitch, 2 double crochets in the next stitch* Repeat * around. Join. (20)

Row 4: Chain 2. *Double crochet in the next 2 stitches, 2 double crochets in the next stitch* Repeat * around. Join. (30)

Row 5: Chain 2. *Double crochet in the next 3 stitches, 2 double crochets in the next stitch* Repeat *around. Join. (40)

Row 6: Chain 1. Single crochet in each stitch. Join

Row 7: Change to black yarn. Chain 1. Single crochet in each stitch. Join. Fasten off.

The next part is totally up to you. My fiance didn’t want the symbol that they had, in the original picture, so he wanted me to do this symbol instead:

2019-05-21 (1).png

I’m sorry that I don’t know the symbols, but this is what he chose. You have to do one of two things to get the symbol on the white piece.

  1. Sew on the symbol.
  2. Puffy Paint it on.

I’ve never used puffy paint, but I wanted to give it a try and still give the ‘3D’ effect. I can sew, but let’s be honest, I got very frustrated on trying to do so. The good thing about sewing is that you can pull it from your project.

Here’s how the puffy paint came out:

20190521_164903.jpg

You don’t have to do either of the symbols, get creative and put whatever you would like!

Once you are done with the symbol, make sure that if you used the puffy paint, let it dry for about 4 hours before touching it or doing this next step.

Take your hat and white symbol circle, grab some black yarn and sew on the circle symbol piece to the hat. And you should be all set to wear it!

I’m going to try my best and create the other hat, but make sure you are following my Facebook page! I usually update when I’m about to create a new pattern or if you want to suggest any ideas that you would like me to recreate!
