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 21: Work as 3rd round = 24 dc.
Work 7 rounds with 1 dc in every dc.

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 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.

Me gustaría tejer varios, me podríais decir cuantos muñecos salen con 50gr. de lana blanca?

DROPS Design 19.11.2017 kl. 20:04:

Hola Olga. Con un ovillo, si se mantiene la tensión del tejido, se pueden realizar aproximadamente 3 muñecos de nieve.

Bei dem Hut: wird nur Runde 4 im hinteren Bogen gehäkelt? oder die weiteren 6 Runden auch im hinteren? Danke :-) (echt schnieker Schneemann) Danke :-)

DROPS Design 19.11.2013 kl. 09:28:

Liebe Nicole, es wird nur in der 4. Rd im hinteren Maschenbogen gehäkelt.

Petra Gertenbach 14.11.2013 - 08:41:

In der Runde 5 ist ein Fehler aufgetaucht: 5. RUNDE: * 1 fM in jede der 2 ersten fM, 2 fM in die nächste fM *, von *-* wiederholen = 40 fM. Es muss richtig heißen: 5. RUNDE: * 1 fM in jede der 3 ersten fM, 2 fM in die nächste fM *, von *-* wiederholen = 40 fM.

Liebe Petra, das stimmt, danke für den Hinweis. Wir haben es sofort korrigiert.

Lanthi 24.07.2012 - 03:45:

Bei Schneeball 1 ist ein Fehler in Runde 5. Es müssen *1 fM in jede der 3 ersten fM, dann 2 fM in die nächste fM*, von *-* wiederholen = 40 fM.

Je hoeft niet de draad te breken. Laat hem meelopen met de eerste l/v van de toer.

Mirjam 06.01.2012 - 21:28:

Goedendag. Mijn vraag is: hoe maak ik de sjaal. moet ik bij wisseling van kleur steeds de draad afbreken of is er een andere manier om van kleur te wisselen? Graag hoor ik van u. Met vriendelijke groeten, Mirjam
