Gnomigurumi

Here is Henry, crocheted with love from a pattern by purl. I collect gnomes, so I couldn't pass up this little friend. I just used leftover yarn for my project. He worked up quickly and his little broad face has a crocheted bump for a nose. I'm thinking of changing the colors of this pattern and making him a girl gnome sweetheart (without the beard, of course). Girl gnomes have green caps and long blonde pigtails. For more about gnomes, check out the 30th anniversary edition of Gnomes by Rien Poortvliet. I received this classic book in the late 70s as a gift from my mom. I've been "gnome-gnuts" ever since! More art soon!
