Mr. Snowman
Created By: Shirley Akis
Craft: knit
Materials: Lion Brand Fun Fur: white, black, and light green The Knifty Knitter: Looms large and small Cardboard Hot Glue Gun Trim for face
Pattern Source: book: Snowman (I think)

When I worked at Michael's Arts and Crafts many years ago, I wanted to make something to show the customers how easy it was to use the Knifty Knitter so I asked my boss for 3 plastic pumpkins for forms. I made Mr. Snowman from the Knifty Knitter in two sizes, the largest and the smallest looms with Lion Brand Fun Fur white and black. I sprayed the pumpkins with white paint, then I used two strands of white on the large loom so you could not see the pumpkins through it. I did the same for the other two shapes.

I made a hole in the bottom of the second pumpkin and the top pumpkin. After I covered each pumpkin I connected them together with wire so they would stay together. I then pulled the loose yarn ends together and hid them.

For the hat, I formed a stiff cardboard into a circle and made a rim from the same cardboard. I covered it by crocheting a circular construction with the black Lion Brand Fun Fur and then closed it up in the center. I used the same Fun Fur to cover the rim and hot glued them together. Later I glued the rim of the hat to the small pumpkin. I finished by crocheting a small scarf in Lion Brand Fun Fur and tied it around his neck and decorated his face.
