Using the White Velvet Yarn

Cast on and crank out…

  • Small –  50 Rounds or until work measures 5.5” unstretched.

I use a row counter but measured my work on the machine from the pins to the cast on edge.

Cast off by using the darning needle and picking up all stitches from machine.

Knitting Machine Snowman Pattern

This year I aded a patch onto my snowman with the year, I think since I am going to be making these every year it is a good idea to add the year that way in 10 years I will know when I made a particular snowman. These patches are available in my Etsy Shop 🙂

Oh and Add a tag 🙂

My original little snowpeople with crochet carrot noses 🙂

I made little tags to go with the snowman and I have them available for free, just click on the link below to download.
