old baby, new arms!

woolly snowman BHG-style

Many of you readers may already known about my Snowbaby pattern featured in the 2014 Better Homes & Garden's Holiday Crafts magazine. The snowbaby, shown above, with its roving carrot nose and packed snow-like arms are the main differences between the the magazine and my original pattern.

Now that the magazine is no longer available on the bookstore racks, so I am able to offer you a free PDF download with the new arm updates/changes:

Please note, the download is only an addendum to the original pattern and it is not a complete pattern. It only contains the necessary changes. So for those that want the pattern with these arms, you still need to buy the original pattern (with beaded twig-like arms) as well. But for those who already have the original pattern, simply download the addendum.

The original pattern has two additional hat styles, the beaded arms and a little cherry nose alternative.

As far as I know, the magazine is still available but can only be purchased online. It was a fun issue with lots of snowman ideas using so many different mediums.

It's never too early to begin your holiday knitting, eh?

Happy knitting!
