Melts in Your Mouth Man

This week my nephew turned two. I asked Lance to call his dad for ideas on what he likes so we could find a gift for him. Among other things, his dad told us that he likes m&m's. No surprise there, I guess. Most two year-olds probably like m&m's.

My only problem was that I couldn't find a pattern to sew/crochet one. Several recent projects involved all the things I needed to know to create my own crochet pattern, though, so I decided I'd make it up as I went.

Here is the pattern that I used. You can follow it to make your own chocolate candy man or any circle shaped guy. I'm kind of reminded of those Little Mr. and Little Miss book characters when I see the body before I add the face.

Let me know if you have problems or see any mistakes.
