I have a nice surprise for you for Christmas. How about making a wonderful snowman? Snowman doll amigurumi made using velvet rope. Thanks to this choice, the amigurumi toy has gained a very soft and very cute appearance. The crocheted snowman has a simple scarf and a cute black hat. Although it has a simple design, the amigurumi snowman looks very stylish. If you are ready now, you can download the amigurumi pdf pattern and get started right away.

Weave around the middle between the eyes a couple times to build it up some, now you will insert as if you were going to do another loop, as you pull your needle out, wrap the yarn around the needle and pull the yarn to form a peak. It might be tricky so pull slowly not to break your yarn. Do this step 2 times, or until you like the look of your nose.

Optional weave in a different color yarn for color
Insert your yarn below the eye and then to the leave you want your eyebrow, form how you like then go under to the other side and do again. Don’t cut off we’re going to make the mouth.
insert to where you want your mouth then bring your yarn across then insert your yarn to form a V making sure your needle is on the opposite side so it will catch the yarn so it doesn’t make it make a straight line.
Make 2 buttons, insert yarn on a diagonal and then go across, then insert yarn under and poke through to opposite diagonal and go across to form an X, repeat on next button.
Congratulations you’ve finished your little snowmen.
