I love gnomes. I know, there are those that do not. Even before the Travelocity Roaming Gnome became popular, I loved the little guys hanging out in my gardens.. Designing gnomes has been on my to do list for several years. I'm glad I finally got my first pair done! This is a quick and easy crochet pattern. You will be able to kick out an army of gnomes in not time at all! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet GAUGE Gauge is not critical for this project, however the tighter you crochet, the less stuffing you will see through your stitches.
