Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on, knit, purl, yarn over, k2tog, bind off
  • Tie a fringe (directions included in pattern)
  • Needle felting (instructions included in pattern)

Pattern Description:

Add a touch of snowman fun to any holiday outfit by sporting my Easy Jolly Snowman Neck Scarf/Cowl, which features a needle felted snowman and festive fringes.

The scarf/cowl is a quick and easy knit and you'll find that it takes only a few minutes to add the snowman to the front corner edge. I've included a color photo tutorial on how to needle felt the snowman. All you'll need is a sense of fun and Holiday wonder, needle felting tools and mat, some additional wool yarn and roving, perhaps a bit of ribbon and some black beads for the "coal" eyes and buttons and you've got yourself a Jolly Snowman Scarf/Cowl! As written, the wearer ties the scarf behind the neck, but if you have a craft bell or holiday button in your stash, you could add that to one of the "tie" corners, use the opposite corner eyelet as a buttonhole and secure your scarf/cowl with a button.

As with all my designs, I'm here to assist and answer any questions you may have as you work up the design.

NOTE: Thank you Susan, for always being my lovely, cheerful and enthusiastic model.
