How to form your snowman’s face:

Take the safety eyes and one piece of your base. Place the safety eyes between row 9-10. Place the right one after the 5th stitch, skip 4 stitches, and insert the left eye. Sew on the nose below the eyes in the middle. Take a black piece of yarn and a tapestry needle. Make the mouth. Make a small line and then secure it in the middle.

Now, we will join both pieces together with a single crochet stitch.

Take both bases and place them with the wrong side facing each other. Afterward, take white color yarn and insert your hook in the first row of white from the left side of your base. Continue making sc around the base, going through both pieces to join them.

When you reach the blue part switch to blue color and continue joining
the bases. Before you join the whole snowman, fill it with a little bit of
fiberfill stuffing.
