12 Weeks of Christmas Knitting: FREE Snowman hat

We love this fun and fluffy Snowman hat from Lion Brand, it’s perfect for the frosty months when the kids are running around in the snow! It’s easy and quick to knit so it makes the ideal project so close to Christmas! Read on to find out how to download week 10 of our 12 weeks of Christmas for FREE and which yarn to use!

Lion Brand Homespun

To make up the hat, you’ll need the gorgeous Lion Brand Homespun. It’s a chunky weight yarn, but it knits and crochets very lightly and because of the ripple finish, the simplest stitch looks fantastic! There are so many shades to chose from but for this pattern you’ll need shade Hepplewhite (300)

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice

You’ll also need Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice to make our Snowman complete! This yarn is perfect for colourwork, because each shade will work in combination with the others; knitted single stranded or even double for a funky heathered look, Vanna’s Choice knits up on 5mm needles for your aran weight projects, or on a 6mm hook for crochet. 100% acrylic yarn that you can wash and wear, this is a fantastic choice for accessories. You’ll need shades Terracota (134) and Black (153).
