Project

Testing, testing, Mr. Snowman!

What are you most proud of? Making the hat without a pattern! I started with a flat disk, then slip-stitched in one round towards the centre, then did a few rounds of single crochet to create the body of the hat, decreasing to close the top, and putting some stuffing inside before closing it up. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Consider embroidering the face and arms before stuffing and closing up the snowman. I found it tricky to do neatly without access to the back of the fabric. Also, it works well to work into the ~underneath~ loops of the starting chain for the scarf; this makes both sides of the scarf look more alike.
