"What will we call him?" "Yeah, shall we call him Harold?" "Or Bruce?" "Or Christopher Columbus?" "How about Oatmeal?" ALL: "Oatmeal!?" -Frosty the Snowman television special, 1969
Oatmeal is a very special snowman. He is knitted from super chunky yarn, making him a rather quick project, and his cables are simple enough for a beginner, or for a first try at doing cables without a cable needle. His arms can be fitted with pipe cleaners on the insides to make him poseable, or without pipe cleaners to make him suitable for a small child. He would make a very lovely holiday gift for someone, but, be forewarned-- you are probably not going to want to give him up!
