I do not know what compels people to risk chilled fingers and even frostbite to build snowmen. I enjoyed it as a child, but nowadays I'd rather stay warm and dry inside, preferably with a snuggly crochet project in hand. You with me on that?
The good news: you can make snowmen -- crocheted ones, knitted ones, edible ones, etc. -- without getting one bit cold. We invite you to check out our list of free snowman-themed patterns, which includes crochet patterns and other free craft patterns and ideas.
Pictured here: Erica Jackofsky's cute snowman baby hat. The snowman appliques double as earflaps that will keep baby toasty and warm. The pattern is sized for preemies, babies and toddlers.
