Here is where the fun starts. Every few rows, you will work in front loops only to create branches on the outside of the coat. After a row of creating branches, you will then make the next row by working in the (unworked/’left over’) back loops of the previous row. If a row does not specify to work in front or back loops, then you may crochet in both loops as usual.

R2. Inc, Sc 1 around (6)

R3. Inc, Sc 2 around (8) chain 1,

turn work (tch)

Repeat along the entire row (makes 6 larger branches)

R17. Switch to white: Sc 22, Sl st in the last 5 stitches (27), at this point you may continue on ‘up’ the front lining of the coat , Slip Stitching the White Border around the front of the coat (where the face peeks out.) F/o and weave in yarn end.


Assembly of crochet Christmas Snorunt

Body: Attach the feet – widely spaced apart for balance and for the coat to have a fuller fit.  Attach the coat to the body- I only attached the front part of the coat to the body and left the back open/unattached. Attach arms- either crossed and holding the edges of the coat, or simply laying free at the front of Snorunts body.

Facial details (eyes, mouth) were added using colored felt and needle felting, and embroidery for the teeth.

Finally: the fun part: Decorate your Snorunt Tree! I used more needle felting of unwound colored yarn ends. I also liked adding a bit of ‘icing’ to the tree by unraveling white yarn strands and needle felting these between the branches. This would be a great project to use up any broken shiny jewelry, colored beads, or other craft supplies to make ornaments. You can even top off your Snorunt with a little star! I left mine plain because (I was tired after decorating, and) I wanted a ‘natural outdoor tree’ look.

I hope you enjoyed making your Christmas Tree Snorunt!
