Snowman CAL




Christmas is right around the corner! What better way to celebrate the holidays than to crochet yourself, or someone you love a cute little Snowman? Because it is so cold this winter, we need to make sure to bundle our snowmen up!
The finished size of your Snowman will be about 8 inches. Your size will vary depending on the yarn you choose, the crochet hook you choose, and your tension while crocheting. I used worsted weight yarn and a size D hook to get my Snowman to 8 inches.
I will post the pattern in pieces on Ravelry in pdf form and in my Ravelry Group.
Pieces of the CAL will be given daily as listed below…
Day #1 - Thursday, December 15th, 2016 
Day #2 - Friday, December 16th, 2016 
Day #3 - Saturday, December 17th, 2016 
Day #4 - Sunday, December 18th, 2016
Come join the fun of the MCAL in my Ravelry Group! Different threads will be opened to go along with the mystery in my Ravelry group - a spoilers thread to share pictures, a question thread for anyone with questions, a regular thread to talk with others about the mystery, and a thread with all the clues.
Here is a helpful tutorials on my blog to help you with some parts of the mystery.
