This jolly fellow would be great hanging on the front door to welcome friends, or just as a decorative wall hanging in the home. The Snowman Wall Hanging is an easy crochet pattern that helps you create your own flat snowman motif. You'll be working with multiple colors, both within the same piece and for separate pieces to sew together at the end, so if you're worried about color changes, don't be - this is an easy enough pattern to practice on. Hang this friendly crochet snowman on your front door or anywhere in your home to add a little bit of extra holiday cheer to your home this season.

Head Piece # 1: Sl st in next st and fasten off.
At this point, I pinned the hat in place at the top of Piece # 1 so I could configure the placement of the eyes, nose and mouth. I then sewed the face parts only in place before continuing with Head Piece # 2.
Head Piece # 2: Do not fasten off. With wrong sides facing, hold piece # 1 and piece # 2 together. Working through both layers of the outer round: Sc in each stitch back to start, join in first sc. If preferred, you can lightly stuff the head with poly fiber fill before sealing it up completely. Fasten off.
You can now sew the hat on top of the head. Place the seamed head pieces between the two brim layers of the hat and use the hat tail to sew through all 4 layers, going across the whole length of the brim.
Mark the bottom 25 stitches of the head, as shown.
Turn your work so the stitch markers are at the top. With the right side of the Snowman facing you, slip stitch to join Color Red in the Front Loop only of marked stitch A. The first round will be worked in the front loops only across to Marker B, then the piece is turned and you will work in the back loops only of the same stitches back to Marker A.
Round 1: Ch 1, working in Front Loops only, sc in same st, sc in next 3 sts, make 2 sc in next st, *sc in next 4 sts, make 2 sc in next st*, repeat between * to marked stitch B.

Dangling Scarf Piece
This piece is worked in a tube. Do not join the rounds. Leave a lengthy beginning tail for sewing.
Round 1: Ch 21, sc in 2nd ch from hook, and in each chain to end, bring the ends together and sl st in first sc to form a ring (20)
Round 2: Ch 1, sc in each stitch around, do not join (20)
