Making Up:
It is easier to do in the following order! 
1. Using 40 cm of yarn doubled in needle work 2 French knots for the eyes winding the wool 4 times, and embroider a mouth. 
2. Use 30 cm of orange yarn doubled over in the needle for the nose – I did a French Knot with 4 winds of the wool with a second knot on top with three winds of the wool. 
3. Sew the holly to the hat and work 3 French Knots using 50 cm red wool doubled over.
4. Now sew the brim on to the snowman’s head, before joining the row ends of the head. 
5. Finally, turn the head right side out and oversew the row ends of the hat.
