Easy Crochet Snowman Hat Pattern

Spread the love

Let’s make our own snowman! But this time, how about we make a crochet snowman crochet hat? I have always loved making beautiful dolls, animal characters, and so on but I’m sure you all know that I am not an Amigurumi expert. So, I went with the closest I can get – A snowman hat. With this, I am so happy with the outcome. It looks so beautiful and twining with my baby makes this super fun! 

Don’t you just love that the small hat on top looks cute like a pom? I bet I prefer this to a pom. I kind of love that you do not need a Pom for this cute hat, and my son loves it.

There are two options to the beautiful Snowman beanie pattern – You can make yours with the earflaps or simply omit it.
Below is a picture from one of my testers.


I love the added buttons as eyes. I told you I suck at making dolls out of yarn. That’s why I skipped adding eyes to mine. However, I have included instructions on how to do that in the pattern. All of my testers added eyes, either with buttons or yarn. I would add buttons once I get a wide black button.

Color Choice – you can make yours in colors of your choice. I’ve used 3 different colors! But that should not stop you from going the extra length with Colors.
