Crispen the Snowman Free Crochet Pattern

Share this

One of my favorite things about the winter season is decorating for the holidays, which include snowman precisely placed around my kitchen and dining area. That’s why I created Crispen the Snowman, a free crochet pattern! I love how soft he is using Lion Brand Go For Faux and Lion Brand Vel-Luxe yarns. If you love snowmen, or know someone who loves them, you’ll be making an abundance of these guys!

  1. Hi Crystal, thank you for this really gorgeous little snowman, he has such a sweet face. I think one of the hardest things to do is create that very special face on a crochet or knitted toy, but you have done just that. The rest of Crispin is great too. Thank you for sharing this pattern, its much appreciated. Keep creating special things!
