The latest edition to the Melly Teddy Ragdoll Family is the Snowman Family Part 1, starring little Chilly – who is just too adorable with his ear warmers and scarf.  Although I live in Durbanville (which is a small town in Cape Town, South Africa), I do love snow and am definitely more a winter girl – nothing nicer than snuggling up in front of a fire with my family and playing card games and chatting, laughing and bonding.  Sadly, I have to pretend it is snowing outside, although it does rain heavily in winter and gets a bit chilly, and I might need to put on a cardigan LOL.  This pattern is for any snowman/winter/roasted marshmallow loving person.  

The pattern includes the instructions to make dad, mom and little Chilly.

The pattern will be released in 6 parts over 2 weeks and you can get each part separately FOR FREE with the Crochet Along

PATTERN – SNOWMAN FAMILY PART 1

HEAD – DAD & MOM

Lightly stuffed and worked in the round.

Using colour (A) make a mc.

Round 1

ch 1, sc 6 into mc, place stitch marker in 6th sc and continue to work in the round (6 sc)

Helpful hint: move the stitch marker and place in the last stitch of each row and this will help keep your stitch count correct and help with row counting, and because we are working quite tightly in the round, I weave my beginning tail in whilst working round 2.

Round 2

sc 2 into each st (12 sc).

Helpful hint: with my patterns, I usually always start with an increase in the 1st stitch, so if your increase stitch falls in the first stitch of the increase stitch from the last row, your stitch should be correct.

Round 3

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next st* rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc)

Round 4

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 2 sts* rep *.* 5 more  times (24 sc).

Round 5

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 3 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc).

Round 6

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 4 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc).

Round 7

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 5 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc).

Round 8

Round 9

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 7 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc).

Round 10

*sc 2 into next st, sc into next 8 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (60 sc).

Round 11

Sc into next 60 sts (60 sc).

Round 12 – 23

Repeat round 12 (60 sc).

Helpful hint: insert the safety eyes between row 18 and 19, about 12 sts apart.  If you prefer to embroider your eyes, you can do this when the head is finished.

Round 24

*inv sc2tog, sc into next 8 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc).

Round 25

*inv sc2tog, sc into next 7 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc).

*inv sc2tog, sc into next 6 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc).

Round 27

*inv sc2tog, sc into next 5 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc).

Helpful hint: you can stuff the head now, and then just add more in before you close off after the last round, the head should be firm, but not hard, think “squishy”.

Round 28

*inv sc2tog, sc into next 4 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc).

Round 29

*inv sc2tog, sc into next 3 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (24 sc).
