Throughout history, gnomes have guarded gardens from wood trolls and vicious moles. Now, you can make your own gnome! Although your gnome may be a bit small to guard your petunias, he makes the perfect desk companion at work or school!
This gnome is a very simple pattern, worked entirely in single crochet stitches in the round, with the exception of the beard. As with most amigurumi, gauge doesn’t matter for this pattern as long as you keep your work tight so the stuffing doesn’t show through.
For this sample, I used a size F hook with:
Red Heart Super Saver in Cherry Red and Royal Blue
Loops and Threads Impeccable in Heather
