I’ll include a simple stretchy “hat” formula which can be knit in any weight of wool with the pattern.
OTHER Hat variations:
Use ANY felted hat pattern for your snowman just cut the crown off of it and add some grommets.
Use a store bought hat. Just make sure you can cut the crown off of it.
You could knit up any stretchy hat pattern and Bind Off before knitting the CROWN portion. Bind it off loosely!
(I love this one and WILL be buying one). Use a straw hat sold at craft stores sell for dried floral arrangements and trim the crown off)
Let the little guy be a baldy….but maybe knit him a mini scarf or ear muffs:) Be fearless and have some fun with this guy:)
The flower was created using my free Felted Disaster Rescue ideas.
The face was needle felted on using roving but can also be done with yarn.
