This adorable crochet gnome is perfect for Christmas. With the neutral colors, he can also be on display all year. You could make varying sizes and create an entire gnome family to adorn your mantel this holiday. Use different colors to experiment with different looks and play around with accessories if you’d like. Or, stick with the classic look as he is adorable as is. However you dress him up, this is a fun project to make for yourself or to give as a gift.

I don’t know what it is about gnomes, but I think they are so cute. While this guy is cute as is, you could also add your own flair to it.
