Crochet Gnome Pattern

Mr. Gnome

Pinterest Gnome

Everywhere on social media I see crochet gnomes. They’re just so cute that I felt a strong desire to design my own! This little guy is my interpretation of a crochet gnome.
This crochet gnome pattern is a great beginner amigurumi pattern. The gauge isn’t very important for this pattern; being sure that the stuffing isn’t peeking through is key.

2.25mm hook used with weight 2 yarn (both used ONLY for the eyes)
