Snowman crafts are the best, and this Crocheted Snowmen DIY Garland is a must-make for anyone who loves this iconic Christmas character. Get a group of crocheters together and have each person make a snowman for this DIY garland or make the whole piece of Christmas decor on your own. These snowmen look detailed but they are actually easy crochet patterns, which means you don't have to be an experienced crocheter in order to make this homemade Christmas garland. You will want to put these little guys up every year.

Notes:
Crochet Hook: F/5 or 3.75 mm hook

Yarn Weight: (4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Crochet Gauge: 16 sts = 4 [10 cm]; 16 rows = 4 [10 cm] in single crochet. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

Directions are for 7 Snowmen. Each Snowman is made with two body pieces. Details are worked separately and sewn on. Snowmen are then sewn on to a chain stitch garland.

Each Snowman measures 3½” [9 cm] at widest point x 7” [18 cm] tall.

Incredibly cute! I can see this garland hanging over a fireplace or a big picture window. I like the colors used here, they're not just Christmas red and green so you can leave them up all winter, although a set of red and green hatted snowmen would be cute too! Lots of details make these snowman really adorable.
