Santa Gnome - Free Crochet Pattern - Crochet Cloudberry

Santa Gnome

A crochet Santa gnome – it had to happen. All year, I have been making crochet cork gnomes and sharing my ideas with you. So with Christmas being the most gnomy of holidays, a Christmas themed gnome was on the cards. And who better than the big man himself? This Santa gnome uses up scrap yarn, can be made very quickly and will be a cute table decoration or even a tree hanger for the festive season.
