I have this super, super friend that has relocated to Florida. He
is so hard to buy for, so my daughter and I have been taking turns
making him snowmen. This year is my turn and would love to have a crochet pattern for a melting snowman. Can anyone out there help me?

Sorry - I don't have it, but I saw a really cute little gift idea. Put mini marshmallows in a cellophane bag, tie the bag with ribbon. Put a label on the bag with cute writing that says "Snowman Poop" Really cute!
