Mr. Gnome or Santa or Wizard Crochet Pattern
I plan to either offer or promote a free pattern on the first Friday of every month. (I’m a day late this month due to an internet outage yesterday-don’t get me started on Windstream!) Last month I posted the pattern for my Slouchy Football Hat. This month, I’ve decided to offer a Ravelry coupon code for a free copy of my Mr. Gnome!
Mr. Gnome is an adorable little gnome I originally designed for my oldest son. He was gnome crazy last year so I came up with this little guy as a Christmas gift. The really neat thing about this pattern is you can make him into a wizard, a Santa or anything else that has a pointy hat! I used leftover worsted cotton yarn but really any yarn will work; thinner yarn will yield a smaller gnome, thicker yarn, a larger gnome. I used an old sock stuffed with plastic beans so he’d stay level.
I’d love to see the finished gnomes! If you are on Ravelry, link yours up to the pattern. Also, I love to post completed projects on my Facebook page, Crochet by Darleen Hopkins. Get yours while you can and check out what else I have in my shop. Remember, all patterns and pattern collections/eBooks are buy 2, get 1 FREE.
