Snowman Hat Tutorial

20131104-112808.jpg

I’ve been seeing tons of super cute snowman hats on Pinterest lately. I wanted to make some for my kids but I didn’t find the exact pattern I wanted to use. So I knit a basic hat and crocheted a carrot nose. Buttons eyes added a nice and easy finishing touch.

So here goes my first crack at a tutorial in case you’d like to make something similar.
