Frosty Approved! Snowman Knitting Patterns That Won't Melt Away

Who says winter knitting ends after the holidays? When it comes to seasonal  knitting projects , I like knitting snowmen because they can stick around even after the holidays are over. I don't know about you, but I see way more snow in January than in December, anyway.

Place your knit snowmen on the mantle, use them as a centerpiece, or knit up a pair of snowman booties for the baby. Get ready for Christmas — and the entire winter season — by knitting up some of these fun snowman patterns from the Bluprint community.

Frederick the Snowman

Get ready for some knitting in the round to create this adorable snowman in any size you'd like. Chunky yarn will give you a larger snowman, while a sport-weight yarn will result in a smaller one. Don't forget to change your needle size depending on the yarn weight you use!

Oatmeal the Snowman

If you know how to knit cables or want to give it a try, check out the Oatmeal the Snowman pattern who boasts some sweet twisty cables. According to the designer, Oatmeal is in good company; he takes his adorable name from a scene in Frosty the Snowman. He's also knit with chunky yarn, making him a quick winter project.

Snowman Baby Booties

Warm little ones' toes with snowman booties that are cute and functional. The booties are worked flat, so you don't even need in-the-round  experience to knit them. You can also customize the scarf and hat colors, which comes in especially handy if you're pulling from your stash.

Snowy the Snowmen

Why does a snowman need legs? To play in the snow, of course! This pair of snowmen would look great hanging out in your Christmas tree or dangling from the mantle. They're also happy to sit atop presents that are still days away from being opened.
