Crochet Christmas Mini Gnomes Pattern

Finally finished and hastily making their way out the crochet pile are some Christmas Gnomes!

I have been wanting to make a Christmas gnome for the last few years, but with all the other makes I have had on I just haven’t had a chance, this year I decided it was time to get one made so put it at the top of my makes list. It has been a work in progress for the last few weeks as some other Christmas makes were completed but now finally I have got it finished! I’m so glad I have finally got one completed and have plans to get a few more made before Christmas in a couple of different colours.
