It was inevitable. Lady Snow and Mr. Snowman are made for each other and have decided to take another step in their passionate relationship by having a churumbel, a beautiful amigurumi snowman. The fruit of their love is called Baby Snowflake, who, with his adorable appearance, is capable of melting his parents’ icy hearts.
To weave this naughty little snowball you will need
- 3mm crocher hook
- White and orange acrylic yarn
- 6mm safety eyes
- Drops Cotton Viscose nº17
- Tapestry needle
- rd: round or turn
- cad: chain
- bp: low point
- aum: increase (2pb in one bp)
- triple aum: make 3pb at the same point
- dis: decrease
- pr: satin point
- *: repeat the sequence until the end of the lap
- (…) points to have at the end of the lap
Note: This pattern is made in a spiral, so at the end of each turn we will NOT make a chain or turn the fabric, but continue to weave (unless otherwise specified). I recommend the use of a lace marker.

– Sew the nose and headband
– Cover the bottom of the doll with the nappy and sew it to the body, just below the upper edge of the nappy, where the arrow marks. In other words, sew on Rd 8 and leave Rd 9 free. – With Drops yarn, make a loop and sew it to the top of the doll’s head. If you don’t want to hang it up, you can skip this step.
And that’s it! Now we have the newest member of the Snows, ready to accompany its parents in your Christmas trees. They look happy, right? I hope you are too and that during the holidays you never get short of love and good company. See you soon!
