Olaf Frozen Crochet Pattern

Abbreviations:
ch: chain stitch
sc: single crochet
hdc: half double crochet
dc: double crochet
yo: yarn over
sc2tog: single crochet two together – a decreasing stitch -> insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop, insert hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, yo, pull yarn through all loops on hook.  (I like using Planet June’s invisible decrease for this stitch, which is slightly different but so amazing)
sc3tog: same as above except crocheting 3 stitches together. (the invisible decrease works for this too)
hdc2tog: half double crochet two together – a decreasing stitch -> yo, insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop, yo, insert hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, yo, pull yarn through all 5 loops on hook.
dc2tog: double crochet two together – a decreasing stitch -> yo, insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop, yo, pull yarn through 1st two loops on hook. yo, insert hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, yo, pull yarn through 1st two loops on hook, yo, pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.
sl st: slip stitch
standing start: with a slip knot on hook, insert hook into stitch, yo, pull up a loop.  yo, pull yarn through loops on hook.  1 sc created.
A few notes:
  • I do not have a pattern for the nose, only basic guidelines.  It was “free crochet” and done on the fly since it was so small and the tube was so tight.
  • I am only providing guidelines on how to assemble his body parts.  Always leave a long tail so you can sew the different parts together.  I liked sewing the parts together at rounds 5 or 6 to give him a more squashy look, but since Olaf can be assembled in a million different ways depending on his mood and what you want him to be doing, this exercise is really left up to the reader.
  • The eyes are white felt pieces cut into 3/4″ circles, with small holes cut slightly off center and a safety eye pushed through the hole.  The safety eye + felt is then “installed” centered between rounds 19 and 20 of the head piece.
  • Once I’m done using the end tails to assemble or secure the pieces, I sew directly into and out the back of the stuffed piece I’m working on so the yarn is pulled into the stuffing.  When I pull the needle out and cut the yarn, the end sort of shrinks back into the stuffing.
  • The parts are worked in continuous rounds.

Nose:

Work 4 sc into a magic circle.  Work sc around and increase or decrease as you feel necessary to create the shape you want.  When you close off, leave a long tail for sewing on to the head.

Buttons:

Work 6 sc in magic circle (or free crochet into magic circle).
Fasten off, leaving a long end to sew onto bodies.

Arms:

With yarn already attached to hook (and leaving a slight tail), insert hook through a stitch in the Upper Body and complete a slip stitch.
Chain 13.  In second chain from hook, slip stitch in next 2 stitches.
Chain 4.  In second chain from hook, slip stitch in next 3 stitches.
Chain 4.  In second chain from hook, slip stitch in next 3 stitches.
Chain 3.  In second chain from hook, slip sitch in next 2 stitches.
Work 1 sc in each of the next 3 stitches (should match the 3 “fingers” previously made)
Work slip stitches in each stitch back to the base of the arm.
Fasten off and leave a bit of yarn.  Tie the two tails (beginning tail and end tail) to better secure the arm and stuff the ends into the body.
The instructions are the same for both hands, so one hand might look wonky, c’est la vie.

Hair:

With yarn already attached to hook, insert hook through a stitch at the top of the Head and complete a slip stitch.
Chain 3, 4 or 5 stitches depending on length of “hair” desired.  Fasten off and cut yarn.

Eyebrows:

Using the tapestry needle and a length of brown yarn, embroider the eyebrows over the eyes.

Mouth:

The mouth you can free cut out of black felt, with an additional piece of white felt for the tooth.  You can cut the mouth shape any way you’d like, or skip it altogether if Olaf has his mouth closed.   The tooth is always visible and is rounded at the bottom.  These pieces are hot-glued onto the head piece.
