First, we sew together the head and body with the openings facing to each other. Here you are using the long thread end from the top and work your way around to the two openings. If you´ve never done that before, the tutorial about sewing open parts together may help.

Now you can paint your snowman some red cheeks into his face with fabric or acrylic paint.

Amigurumi - Schneemann häkeln - Sven - AnleitungTo crochet the hat for the snowman just use the Pattern for a Beanie with half treble crochet stitches. I crocheted all rounds of the upper part with red. For the lower part I started with white and changed the colour each round. Then I made red ear flaps as shown in the Pattern for Ear Flaps for Every Hat at the 1st variant. At least follows the last round with red and after weaving in the thread ends, the hat is already finished.
