Are you looking for a fun and festive project to knit for Christmas? Do you love snowmen and want to make your own adorable ones? If so, you will love this Free snowman knitting pattern that I have designed  for Christmas!    

My PDF knitting pattern is written in English, the file is 10 pages PDF. The pattern includes all the necessary information, clear instructions, and 51 step-by-step figures to guide you through each step. 

You can also watch a tutorial video on my website [Cheryx.com] to see how I made this snowman.  It’s very easy to follow and suitable for beginners.   You can make the hat and scarf in any color you like. 

You can also customize your snowman by adding some accessories, such as a broom or a carrot.   

The finished snowman is about 14 inches tall. It is soft and cuddly and perfect for decorating your home or giving as a gift. You can make one or more snowmen and create a whole family of them!   

I hope you enjoy knitting this snowman and have a wonderful holiday season!
