Learn how to crochet a flat snowman that can be used as a Christmas ornament, garland, or applique! This adorable crochet snowman is a must make.

From the Designer: "I got an e-mail from a reader asking if I could make a Crochet Snowman the same size as my Crochet Gingerbread so they could alternate them on some holiday garland. I thought this was a fabulous idea! So I updated my Crochet Snowman Applique into more of an ornament size!! And the two Christmas Buddies look so adorable together. Get the Gingerbread Man pattern HERE. The Snowman Pattern is written below!"
