    Hi can you tell me what size hook you use for these and is it double knit wool thank you

    • Uljana says:

      I love using different hooks (it depends which yarn/thread I have in my hands)
      I used 1.0mm or 1.25mm hook with size 5 thread (a bigger snowman) and 0.75mm with size 8 thread
      Usually I use 2mm or 3mm hook with DK yarn
      thank you

      I use invisible decrease: insert hoop in front loops of next 2 stitches, yarn over, pull through first 2 loops, yarn over, pull through remaining 2 loops (use can find a tutorial on youtube )

    I am trying to make the little snowmen, it ends up just being around ball, do I stuff it etc. is the head separate? confused

    • Uljana says:

      It’s one piece snowman ( body and head together), starting with the body (rounds 1-12), then neck ( round 13) and finishing with the head ( rounds 14-22). I stuff at the end before the round 21 😉
