Does anyone happen to have a cute gingerbread man pattern?  My Mum is obsessed with them and I was hoping to find one online somewhere... with no luck.  I figured I would start asking now...
I ran across this picture... so I know there is one out there somewhere...

Thanks!

It really looks like you make white and red granny squares, then crochet little gingerbread shapes separately and sew them on with red thread. You can tell because it looks like they're in a different gauge. I bet you could also just make a chart of a gingerbread man on some graph paper and then use it to know where to make color changes as you crochet a square straight out (not in the round).

Whatever you come up with, please post! I absolutely LOVE this pattern and while I'm not the greatest knitter/crocheter/seamstress I would love to try it. Absolutely gorgeous!

That's my problem, too. I have basically been doing blankets since the beginning of time, but haven't really ever ventured into anything else...

Heh, you've got me beat by a LONG shot. It's been some time since I've crocheted anything other than a scarf and that was only a single crochet step all the way.
