see my blog post  Knitted snowman 2015 for some hat patterns for the snowmen 

Size 5 DBLB needles 

Co 6  plus 1 to join in the round

K1fb  around 
k1fb, k1 across 
k1fb ,k2 across
k1fb, k3 across until you have 30 stitches  

knit around until you have desired height 
or if you need to know about how many rows for a short snowman knit about 33 rounds   -(this will make a snowman that measures about 5 inches high  )-

I now stuff the bottom
I put a little stuffing --then added a little rice--then more stuffing

K2tog, k2 across 
I did this until I have 6 or 9 stitches
Then cut yarn and pulled through remaining stitches
Weave in end---

Then I make Hat and scarf

I tend to Glue on Beads for Eyes and nose  add a little blush for cheeks 

For Hat i have been casting on 30  plus 1 to join in the round
