Snowman

I've been thinking about upgrading this chap for a year or two. I HATE cutting and tying ends so have spent a while sorting him out so I've got rid of one lot of 'ends'.  Another improvement is a better hat and a new style of walking stick too.    Oh, he's also a bit longer too.  The original was a bit short and fat and I wasn't too happy about that.  Obviously either of them (old and 'improved') can be made longer anyway.

Here he is in all his 'new' glory with updated hat, walking stick, body length and scarf.

  6. I'm going to try to make this cute snowman. I'm a fairly new tatter. On the 2nd part of the scarf, it says SR2: 6 / 6 CL AJ between SR2 & SR3. What does AJ mean? Is it some kind of a join? Thanks!

    1. Well spotted, Sandy. I'm just going to add AJ to the abbreviations. It's an alligator join. Take one shuttle thread behind the space between the SR's and one in front. Here's a link for you. http://www.janeeborall.freeservers.com/AJoin.pdf

  7. Could one make the bottom outer rings(the body of the snowman). Smaller? To make him more round?
