To make the band, ch 25 with red. Draw yarn through final chain and pull through, leaving tail.  Trim, and use tail to fasten band around hat.

To make the leaves, ch 3. Sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch.  Draw yarn through and trim, leaving tail.  Make two and attach to band as pictured.  Attach hat to snowman’s head.

Stick arms (make two):

To make “bumps” on sticks, sc 4 into a magic ring, then sc in each st around (4). Make 2. Sometimes when working with such a small, tight shape, it can turn itself inside out.  Use the blunt end of your hook to push the shape in the right direction as you go, if needed.  Attach bumps to sticks (and yes, these are the same directions as you used for the reindeer antlers!). Attach arms to snowman.

Crochet the Snowman’s Scarf:

Using green, chain 40.  Hdc in third chain from hook and in remaining chains. Weave in ends and wrap around snowman’s neck.  Secure with a couple of stitches of green yarn.
