Adventcalendar 2018 – Day 15

My Xmas song of the day is “Frosty the snowman” and as it finally starts getting cold and we may be having snow this weekend, I think it is time for a little snowman on my knitting needles (not figuratively speaking as you can see).

This one is easily done, you just make two circles, one of them a little bigger than the other, stitch on a nose and some eyes (mine is sleeping) and add a hat.

To make the circles, you

Chain 4, close it to a ring with a slip stitch

Work 6 double crochet (dc) into the ring

Work an increase (inc) in every one of the 6 dc (12stitches)

Work an inc in every other dc (18stitches)

[the smaller circle ends here]

Work an inc in every third dc (24stitches)

Either sew on the circles or crochet them together.

To make the hat, you

Chain 5 (one for turning)

{4dc, chain 1, turn} repeat 3times

At the end of the last row keep going and chain 3, turn,

6dc Till the other end, keep going and chain 3, turn, 2dc finish with a slip stitch

Add the embellishments, sew on the hat and you are done!
