This adorable silly snowman hat knitting pattern is the perfect fun winter knitting project!
I have designed several snowman hat knitting patterns before. I have a classic snowman hat knitting pattern. I have a snowman hat knitting pattern that wears earmuffs. I also I have pom pom snowman hat where the snowman IS the pom pom on top of the hat. That one is Baby V’s favorite.
So this year, I decided to do a really cute duplicate stitch snowman hat knitting pattern. I knit this one with a super cozy ribbed folded brim that’s perfect for winter. Then the cute snowman is peeking out over the brim to wave.
If you are familiar with duplicate stitch for knitting then you probably already love this fun and easy combination of embroidery and knitting. Duplicate stitch is great because it can be added to any knitting pattern after it is finished. This allows you not only to make sure the placement is perfect, but also keeps you from having to juggle multiple strands of yarn or deal with floats while you are knitting.
If you have not yet tried duplicate stitch for knitting, check out my duplicate stitch knitting tutorial, after a little practice, you’ll be a pro.
This cute silly snowman hat knitting pattern is knit in the round with worsted weight yarn and has a cozy 1×1 ribbed folded brim. You’ll need either double pointed knitting needles or the magic loop method to finish the decrease section of the hat and a yarn needle to add the snowman motif.
For this snowman hat knitting pattern you will also need to add the carrot nose and tree branch arms at the very end with yarn threaded on a yarn needle. You can simply use very basic straight embroidery stitches to add these details. But, make sure that your stitches are not too tight or they will pull when the hat stretches. When you are finished with all the details, weave in the ends inside the hat.
