Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!
This cute knitted snowman pattern is from an American Thread Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn Collection Star Book No. 225. He uses two 70 yard skeins of white Heavy Rug Yarn and 1 pair of size No. 8 knitting needles. The gauge is 4 sts = 1 inch.
Rubber balls, one 7 inches in diameter and one 5½ inches in diameter are used as his body. Black felt and red ribbon are used for his accessories. I’m sure you could use polyester stuffing rather than the rubber balls to fill out his body.
Here’s the knitting pattern instructions for the Showman Snowman:
Just click on it, it will open in a new window and there you can right click to save it to print using either “save target as” or “save link as” depending on what browser you are using.
I featured another Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn knitting pattern for a doll in a previous blog post.
