CROCHET 2 DC TOG:
Decrease 1 dc as follows: Insert hook in dc and pull thread through, insert hook in next dc and pull thread through, make 1 YO and pull thread through all 3 loops on hook.

SNOWMAN:
Beg at the bottom of body and work 2 snowballs on top of each other in different sizes. Then crochet the hat, nose and scarf. Everything is crochet with 1 thread and hook size 2.5 mm.

1ST SNOWBALL:
Work 4 ch with off white and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 8 dc in ch-ring – see CROCHET TIP!
ROUND 2: 2 dc in every dc = 16 dc.
ROUND 3: * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 24 dc.
ROUND 4: * 1 dc in each of the first 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 32 dc.
ROUND 5: * 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 40 dc.
Work 10 rounds with 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 16: * 3 dc, crochet 2 dc tog – see explanation above *, repeat from *-* = 32 dc.
ROUND 17: * 2 dc, crochet 2 dc tog – see explanation above *, repeat from *-* = 24 dc.
ROUND 18: * 1 dc, crochet 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* = 16 dc.
ROUND 19: * Crochet all dc tog 2 by 2 = 8 dc, do not cut the thread. The first snowball is now done, fill it with some cotton and continue with the second snowball.

2ND SNOWBALL:
ROUND 20: Work as 2nd round = 16 dc.

ROUND 3: * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 24 dc.
ROUND 4: 1 dc in every dc – NOTE: Only work the back loop on this round to get an edge where the crown of the hat ends.
Continue working 6 rounds with 1 dc in every dc (working through both loops as usual).
ROUND 11: Work 3 ch, then 2 tr in every dc the rest of the round = 48 tr. Cut and fasten the thread. Crochet a ch-row of 30 ch, fold it double and tie a knot at the bottom and pull it through the top of the hat. Fill some cotton in the hat and sew it to the top of the head.
