I believe this was my second crocheted Winter/Christmas home decor item. The first being Mr. Melty who now stays out all year because it’s more appropriate for him to be out in the summer. I’m realizing I’m now in a snowman decor rut and I have to break that up. Next I think I’ll make a Santa because I’m really into collecting and decorating with them over anything else.
This project was done using Charmed By Ewe’s Snowman Wall Hanging. I believe it was a CAL at the time. I remember completing this with a bunch of others on Facebook. I used RHSS in white, black, and cherry red, Red Heart With Love in Mango with a 5.0mm hook. When I first worked up this pattern I found a couple things to be off or not fully explained. Since comparing my notes to the pattern now it looks like it has been edited. So all I have to mention is things I did differently!
I took off two dc on the second row of the nose so mine doesn’t curve like hers. When I worked this up the staggering of the head was not explained at all. The pattern stated just to stagger the increases. So this what I did was on round 14 I did 3 sc and then an inc before following the pattern. And on round 15 I did 9 sc and then an inc before following the pattern.
I also then added some Holly Leaves that are designed by Oombawka Design. I used a piece of white yarn attached across the back of the head to hang it on the side of my kitchen cabinets. Makes me smile every time I see him 🙂 I’ll have to add an updated picture once I get some red buttons attached as the holly berries.
