Updated on September 12, 2016

I've been crocheting since I was a little girl. Since then I've designed for magazines and offer free patterns at my site.

Snowmen make great editions to holiday decorating. Here you'll find free crochet patterns for snowmen ornaments, a snowman hat for baby, a snowman afghan, and even a snowman table runner pattern.

Crochet an entire snowman family and use as a table centerpiece. You can cover a Christmas tree with snowmen too.

Amigurumi Snowman - This snowman has a red nose and a crooked smile. The mouth and eyes are embroidered on. The pattern was designed to be a toy, but could be used as a tree ornament too.

Bo the Snowman - Roxy Crafts offers this free pattern. It includes the snowman's head only, but makes a nice tree ornament. She used scraps of TLC Essentials yarn, but you could use any comparable yarn. You'll need just a little polyester or other stuffing for the head.

Easy Snowman - These cute snowmen are from the Princess Philomena Live Journal. She just switched the button colors a bit and crocheted two for a cute pair. You'll need size 10 thread and a size C crochet hook. You'll also need a little polyester stuffing, pipe cleaner, beads or tiny buttons, glue or glue gun, and an embroidery needle.

Flat Snowman Ornament - All Crafts Blog offers a pattern for a flat snowman that would be good to hang on the wall. The snowman is created with just 3 circles and a black hat. He is 7 1/2 inches tall. You'll need small amounts of worsted weight yarn, tiny pom poms for the eyes, a little larger ones for the buttons and a size I hook.

His First Snowman - This pattern for a little boy and his snowman is offered by Red Heart. The boy is as cute as can be and is one of those "must see" patterns. Super Saver yarn and an F hook were used to create the pair.

Little Snowmen - The tiny snowmen are flat and meant to be used for tree ornaments. The largest snowman is 3 1/2" tall and the smaller one is 2 1/2" in height. Scraps of light worsted weight yarn was used and a size F crochet hook.

Melting Snowman - Crochet'n More offers this free pattern of a melting snowman. His head is there, but there is a puddle of snow beneath him. It would be cute to add some of the other snowmen with him. She used 4-ply worsted yarn and a size G crochet hook.

Mini Snowman - The Dapper Toad offers a pattern for a tiny snowman. Make an entire chorus of these like she did. They only take scraps of yarn to crochet. You'll also need tiny amounts of embroidery thread for the eyes, mouth and arms. I love these little cuties.

Snowman Afghan - Mom's Love of Crochet offers this extra special afghan pattern. It is a charted pattern, so you'll need to be able to follow a chart. A large snowman is in the center of the afghan and he is waving. The pattern uses worsted weight yarn and a size I hook.

Snowman Faces Ornaments - These cute little ornaments are from Donna's Crochet blog. This is another great way to use worsted weight yarn scraps. The pattern is rated Easy. You'll need a size H crochet hook and miscellaneous craft supplies.

For pattern go to

Snowman Family - FaveCrafts offers this cute snowman family. The large snowman is 6 1/2" and the small one is 4" tall. You'll need Bernat Handicrafter Cotton or similar yarn and a size F crochet hook.

Snowman Baby Booties - These are cute booties from The pattern offers 2 different lengths - 3 1/4" (size 3 - 6 mos) or 4" (size 6 - 12 mos). They have little snowman faces on the foot top. You'll need worsted weight yarn and a size G hook.

Snowman Earflap Baby Hat - offers this free pattern with a snowman that forms the earflaps. It is rated Easy, so most crocheters can tackle it. You'll need worsted weight yarn and a size G hook.

Snowman Hat Pattern - Repeat Crafter Me offers this cute pattern. I'm going to crochet some of these for my grandkids, because they are nice. A snowman face is on the front of the hat. It has the carrot nose and earflaps. They are designed to fit toddlers. You'll need White Chunky yarn and worsted weight yarn. The project is crocheted with a size I hook.

Snowman Mug Hug - The Mug Hug would make a nice quick gift for anyone. It is offered by Red Heart yarn. It is rated Easy. You'll need worsted weight yarn and a size E and H crochet hooks.

Snowman Ornament - The free pattern is an excellent way to use up scraps of worsted weight yarn. It is offered by Craftown. You'll need a size G hook.

Snowman Table Runner - Crochet one of these table runners and leave it on the dining table this winter. Mom's Love of Crochet crocheted this pretty runner that has a snowman at each end. You'll need size 10 crochet thread and a size 6 steel hook.

      I haven't crocheted since high school but I collect snowmen and now I am thinking I really want to get back into crocheting so I can make some of these cute little snowfamilies. Thanks for sharing. This is the 7th of 26 hubs I've read today honoring the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. I read this hub in memory of Dylan Hockley, 3/8/06, male.

      When my boys grew up I changed all my Christmas decorations from Santa to snowmen. I can certainly use these ideas!
