R3: (sc, inc)*6 = 18.
R4: (2 sc, inc)*6 = 24.
R5: (3 sc, inc)*6 = 30.
R6: (4 sc, inc)*6 = 36.
R7-12: 36 sc (6 rounds).
R13: (4 sc, dec)*6 = 30.
R14: (3 sc, dec)*6 = 24.
R15: (2 sc, dec)*6 = 18.
R16: 18 sc.

R23: (4 sc, dec)*6 = 30.
R24: (3 sc, dec)*6 = 24.
R25: (2 sc, dec)*6 = 18.
Stuff the snowman.
R26: (1 sc, dec)*6 = 12.
R27: dec*6 (6).
Cut the thread, leaving a long tail. Tighten the loops: in order to do this insert the needle into the front of the loop, and then, when through all loops the thread will be skipped, tighten the loops.
Hide yarn tail inside the body.
If you want to use a snowman as a Christmas tree decoration, you can make a loop.
Scarf: The simplest version of a scarf – make 95 ch, fasten and hide the threads.
R1: 5 sc in MR.
Cut the thread, leaving a long tail. Tighten the loops. Sew on the nose with the first row, the second row is sharper.
Make 19 ch..
R1: from the second ch crochet 18 sc.
R2: ch, turn, BLO 13 sc, 5 slst.
R3:ch, turn, 5 slst, BLO 13 sc.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until the desired volume, I have crochet 34 rows in total.
Sew the hat on the side. From above, collect the loops with a needle and pull off, secure the yarn.
Embroider eyes on 22 round. Sew on the snowman’s nose. Tie the scarf 3 turns and put on the hat. Paint your cheeks with pink chalk.
