I have a passion for anything crochet and love to collect, try out, and share the best free crochet patterns I discover!
This article features the BEST free amigurumi snowman patterns available on the internet. It's a cheerful and cute collection of one of the staples of winter (and Christmas!) decoration. Fun to make for yourself, your children or as original handmade Christmas presents or stocking stuffers.

This cute snowman can't wait for winter to go out and play with his little sleigh! He's all ready to go with his cute earflap hat and matching little scarf. I just adore his large head and little face. He'll be a cuddly companion on those long winter nights. He's the perfect addition to your Christmas decor or as a handmade special Christmas present.
The pattern is in German, but is fairly easy to understand using Google Translate. The pattern contains lots of photos for extra clearity. There are links to the free (German) patterns for the scarf and hat (with the earflaps).

He's cute, sweet and full of little details! He's the perfect snowball Christmas ornament for your Christmas tree or anywhere else in your home! Give him away as a stocking stuffer, wine bottle charm or special gift tag. He'll be happy wherever he end up and will spread Christmas cheer to all!

The pattern is very clear. The head can be a bit tricky to make, but hang in there - the result is stunning! Please be advised that Olaf is a trademarked character and so only make him for personal use (or as an awesome gift ofcourse!). Don't sell the finished product (or the pattern).
