Snow Family Toy and Ornament Pattern

Snow Family Ornament Pattern

by Elizabeth Mareno

An ad-free version is also available on ETSY or my website


The snow people range from 3" to 4" tall

The Snow Family came about on a Winter trip from Florida to Michigan right around Christmas time. I made one snowperson to represent each one of us in colors that represented each person. 

They are the perfect size to make a cute arrangement on a Holiday table, or you can add a loop and make them into ornaments! You can even change up your yarn and hook sizes and make them into larger amigurumi for gifts. I recommend using these to stash bust your way through the Holidays!!
