Rnds 1-3: Repeat rnds 1-3 of head.

Rnd 4: Ch3, dc in each st around, join & fasten off & weave in ends. (48dc)

W/right side up, overlap head onto the body.  Match rnd 3 of head with the top of rnd 2 of body.  Sew head to body, you might want to remember to sew the back part too, so there is no gap. Weave in your ends when done.
Rnd 5: With wrong sides facing, join white with any sc, working through both pieces, sc in each st around, working a slst in the last st of the head where it meets the body, then another slst into the first st of the body, continue working a sc in each st around to other side where you will work the 2 slsts as above.  Fasten off & weave in ends.

Ear Muffs: (W/B) Make 2
Rnd 1: Ch4, 9dc in 4th ch from hook, join.  (10dc)
Rnd 2: Ch1, sc in each st around.  (10sc). Do not fasten off.
2nd Muff: Ch24, repeat rnds 1 & 2 once more after the end of rnd 2, ch1, and slst back down the 24chs, fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto head.  

Attach your ear muffs to the top of your snowman, eyeball where you think it should be, and you might want to use bobby pins to keep in place while sewing on.

Row 29: Sc in next 2sts, work 2 or 3sc in sp (based on what you chained for button hole), sc in last 2, fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.  (5sc)
You will need determine where you want to place your hanger and how you want your button, in the front or back.  How I did mine was this: I like the button in front as it’s  easier to button.  I attached row 1 of hanger to about the middle of rnd 1 of  head piece,  I then attached my button between rows 8-11.  

Towel Loop: (W/A)
Row 1: Ch15, sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 13chs.  Ch1, turn.  (14sc)
