Snowman Hat Ornament

Happy Holidays!

It’s the final week of the six week series dedicated to ornaments that double as gift card holders! This week I created an easy little snowman’s hat that would make Frosty proud.

This pattern is very easy. The hat is constructed of two panels that are crocheted together. The only stitch used in the hat is single crochets.

The holly is crocheted separately using slip stitches, half double crochets, triple crochets and chains. But, what I love most about this pattern is the adorable tiny jingle bells that are the berries! What ornament would be complete without a little jingle?

I found these little bells at Hobby Lobby. If you don’t happen to have a Hobby Lobby close by or refuse to shop there for whatever reason, I found a great tiny bell substitute offered by Amazon. You can see them at this link.

Creating these thread ornament patterns was so much fun! I hope that you all enjoyed them as much as I did.

For those of you that prefer yarn to thread, I will be doing a series of yarn ornaments next year!

Place a holly leaf on one of the hat panels and with the tapestry needle and long tail, tack stitch the leaf into place. Repeat with the second leaf.

With the sewing needle and thread, stitch 3 tiny jingle bells into place at the base of the holly leaves.


Place the two panels of the hat together with right sides facing outward. Using your crochet hook and the black thread, begin single crocheting evenly down the side of the hat.

Note: You will not be stitching the top of the hat closed.

When you reach the red, either finish off the black or color change to red. Continue single crocheting the panels together along the red hat band. Once you reach the black hat brim, either finish off the red or color change to black. Single crochet evenly along the edge of the brim. In every corner, (sc, ch 1, sc) all in the same space. Repeat this process of changing colors as you work up the opposite side of the hat. When you get to the top, without stitching the top closed, finish off the black.

Weave in all ends.

Insert your decorative hook near the top of the hat along the trim.

I do hope you enjoyed this six week series! Be sure to check out all of the week’s ornaments.

  1. Thank you for sharing your beautiful mind! How lovely and beautiful you are to share. Also just how very creative can one human be how amazing. Thank you so much for being so selfless. Merry Christmas! I’ll have to see if I can do more crocheting after Christmas, Even when it begins to warm up. Thankfully I’m in North Carolina and no longer Florida LOL

    1. You are so welcome, Rita! Thank you so much for your kind words!!! You just made my whole day! I used to live in North Carolina and I remember needing warm blankets and things just from the air conditioning! Ha! I do hope that you get to crochet more after the holidays when everything starts to slow down. I really appreciate your comment. Merry Christmas to you from Pennsylvania!
