Go walking in a winter wonderland anywhere with this Snowman Hat Knit Pattern
While my kids are hoping for snow, it’s never a guarantee here in Texas. We actually have had snow for several years in a row (other than last year), but you never know. Littlest has been asking me all kinds of questions about temperature and weather as he hopes for snow.
Whether or not we can create our own Frosty the Snowman, I decided I still needed to build a snowman. Or 6.
Of course I really need to give credit/inspiration for this hat to a friend of mine. We were having a craft night and I was bouncing pattern ideas off of my friends. One of them said she would love a snowman hat. Ta-da! I already sent her a photo of the finished hat (which will be a gift to her) so this post won’t ruin the surprise.
This knit snowmen hat features 6 little snowman (who I may or may not be calling Frosty the Snowman) around the hat. The snowmen are three ‘snowballs’ tall. The ‘snowballs’ are stacked on top of each other, largest to smallest.
Once the snowmen were all knit up I added a few button embellishments. You could add extra detail to your snowman as well, like eyes or a nose. I loved the simplicity of just adding the buttons down the center of each snowman.

This pattern uses 5mm double pointed needles, knit stitches, purl stitches, and cabling. I made the hat using worsted/medium weight yarn in a ‘linen’ color. If you have any questions feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email!
After you finish the snowman knit hat pattern make sure to grab the knit snowman gloves pattern.
I AM SO EXCITED TO BE THE INSPIRATION (and to get the hat)
That is brilliant, I love to cable knit but would never have thought to use it like this – you are just so clever!
