Colorful Crafting with Jen: SnoBuddy Family from Knitting at KNoon

These snowmen may be the cutest project I've ever completed. The pattern is from the creative minds at Knitting at KNoon, and is called The SnoBuddy Family

The snowmen were super quick and easy to make, and it was so fun to make their little tiny accessories. The tiny scarves for the mom and dad were done in no time and made my Snobuddy family come to life! 

I think my favorite accessory to make was the little boy snowman's gloves.  I'm not sure what made this particular part was so gratifying, but it may have something to do with the finished product, could it be any cuter?

To make my entire SnoBuddy family I used just one skein of Blue Sky Alpaca's Suri Merino, a super soft, slightly fuzzy yarn that reminded me of a freshly fallen snow (but any soft white worsted or aran weight yarn will work for the pattern). For needles I used Crystal Palace double pointed US size 6 bamboo needles. For their accessories, I went into my stash and found some scraps in the same gauge as the Suri Merino to ensure that the hats, scarfs and gloves would fit.

You can find the SnoBuddy Family pattern from KNitting at Knoon right here!

I hope you'll enjoy making these snowmen as much as I did! --Jen

What a pretty familiy it is.. What I liked the most is the small child with pink hat. It is obviously visible it is made with care. :)

I would like the SnoBuddy family pattern from Knitting at Knoon but need it right away! I need to knit it and mail in to Toronto and Austin TX by Christmas (I live in Nova Scotia). I made a family of these for my daughter and son and their families of 3 two Christmases ago. Not we have 2 new grandchildren - 1 each and I have lost the pattern! Can't find it anywhere. I can buy it from Pearl Soho but they only have it in print to mail not as a PDF. How can I get this patter on-line - most willing to pay for it however. Can anyone help?

Problem solved! Thank you RAVELRY! Found the the pattern on Ravelry in PDF and it is now downloaded, printed and tucked safely into my Knitting File on my computer!

Merry Christmas everyone!
