Miniature Snowman (crochet)
I didn't have a pattern for this guy- he is all from my head while sitting and watching Hallmark Channel for 3 hours HAHA. (24 hours a day of Christmas stuff will have you making snowmen, too...)
I basically started making a "ball" and after you start tapering it down, instead of closing it up- start bringing it back out again to make the second snowball. Make it a little bigger than the first one..then taper it down and close it off (after stuffing). He is approximately 2 1/2 inches tall.
I used embroidery thread to do the coal and nose and the tassels on the scarf. The rest of the scarf, hat, and snowman was using size #3 crochet thread and an "E" hook. Altogether I would say it took me about 3 hours or so to make...that was with several laundry, bathroom and snack breaks. :P
