roly-poly snowman


NOTE:  It has been brought to my attention there are a few errors in the magazine’s version of the pattern. Here are the simple corrections:
  • Small red jingle bell for the stocking cap’s pompom (it was omitted from the materials list)
  • White roving (on the materials list, but not needed)
  • In the abbreviations section, ‘inc 1’ was omitted. This increase method is knitting into the front and then into the back of the same stitch, increasing one.
  • Stocking cap: round 19 should read *k2, k2tog*

Sorry for the inconvenience, and hope this is helpful.


One of my patterns is featured in the current issue of Better Homes & Gardens 2014 Holiday Crafts! 'Roly-poly snowman' is what the magazine calls it, but it is basically my snowbaby pattern updated. I changed out the twig-like beaded arms to woolly ones, with a needle felted carrot nose and a little blusher for rosy cheeks.

Better Homes & Gardens did a beautiful job with the layout and photography. This issue has several fun loving projects that have intrigued me, like the snowman made from fast drying clay atop styro-foam balls sprinkled with glitter. Doesn't that sound like fun?
