Crochet Snowman Scarf – FREE pattern
I love to crochet holiday projects this time of year and am excited to share this fun Snowman Pocket Scarf with you! A crochet scarf makes for a great gift or a craft fair item. I love how they are one-size-fits-all and add interest to any coat or outfit.
Details about the Crochet Snowman Scarf
This is a simple scarf to crochet using a two-row repeat for the main stitch consisting of chains and single crochet. The face details are created with easy stitches and small amounts of yarn from your stash. And the fun face creates the perfect little pocket to keep your hands warm!
Do you know someone who loves snowmen or snow? They would love to wear this scarf 🙂

And there you have it – your Crochet Snowman Scarf is complete! I really like the Cranberry (red) color of the yarn but you could make the scarf base in any color – green, blue, pink – to give the crochet scarf a different look.
I think this crochet snowman scarf is a good beginner project as well because this project uses basic stitches and many repeats. And if making some of the facial features intimidates you, you could cut them out of felt and sew them on so you only need to crochet the scarf base.
I hope you enjoyed making the Crochet Snowman Pocket Scarf – remember to send me a photo (firstname.lastname@example.org) of your finished scarf or tag me on Instagram (@celticknotcrochet). I really enjoy seeing what you make!
