Christmas is coming and I want to share a crochet snowman applique pattern. It can be used as a Christmas decoration for postcards, clothes or any things. I crocheted these snowmen for my daughter, she glued them to the window of her bedroom. So I am sure you will find them worthy of use.
- For snowman’s head I used white cotton yarn 50 gr / 90 m and crochet hook 3.5 mm.
- For hat and scarf – red and green cotton yarn 50 gr / 200 m and crochet hook 1.5 mm.
- Needle for embroidery, pink thread for embroidery, scissors
Measurement: Snowman is approx. 3.3 inches high and 2.8 inches wide.
