We knit in any order: arms, body, nose and top hat. We sew the nose and hands to the body. We decorate the cylinder and sew it to the head.
The body and head are knitted in one piece. I advise you to knit the bottom (with rows 1-11 crochet one size smaller.
This is necessary so that the bottom does not bend.

The last row, as it were, reinforces the edge of the cylinder fields.
On the needles 3.5 mm, cast on 10 loops and knit with an elastic band: 1 front, 1 purl. At the same time, do not forget to remove the first loop not knitted, but to knit the last one with a purl. These are edge loops.
1 P: hem, * 1 front, 1 purl * (repeat to end of row), purl the last loop.
2 P: hem, then knit the loops according to the pattern, knit the last loop with the purl.
In total, you need to knit 74 rows.
In row 75, close the loops according to the figure.
Sew a scarf, you need to make a snood out of it.
Sew the beginning of the scarf with the end of the scarf.
Sew the nose to the head.
We fix the eyes.
Now we need to sew on the handles. On the edges of the body, select places for the hands and put pins.
We take the buttons and sew on the handles.
We sew buttons to the body of the snowman.
Before that, it is better to put a scarf on the body and mark the attachment points of the buttons.
We decorate the cylinder.
We choose any jewelry. I love buttons in different sizes and colors.
You can add beads, wooden figures, artificial flowers, berries, etc.
We decorate the cylinder, put it on the head and sew it on.
