I first noticed Christmas gnomes while out shopping. They looked adorably sweet and like something I could make. I was thrilled to find a crochet pattern for the exact sort of Christmas gnome I had in mind.
The pattern provided instructions for a round body stuffed with rice, little round nose, long fluffy beard and tall pointy hat. I loved it's simplicity.
My first gnome toppled over unable to sit upright because I had stuffed it with poly-fill instead of rice. I added arms and legs ... problem solved.
This gnome worked out so well I decided to make another. These two Crochet Christmas Gnomes are soft and squishy... perfect for cuddles.
I continue to work with yarn from my stash. You can see one gnome is a little bit bigger because he was made using slightly heavier yarn.
My next three Crochet Christmas Gnomes were made following the pattern exactly. Stuffed with rice, the body feels a bit like a Hacky-sac, but is perfectly stable. I managed to capture a few fun photos while the sun shone last weekend.
I love my Crochet Christmas Gnomes. Like my daughter said, "They're adorable and hilarious." I hope reading about these colourful quirky little gnomes helps brighten your day with smiles from meo my crochet.
Go ahead, make a few. You won't be disappointed if you do.
