[crochet] Gnome

Crocheted gnome.


Pattern: Simply a Gnome from here

Yarn is just scraps of red, beige and blue. Used two small safety eyes. Sewed down his white beard. Stuffed with polyfill. I filled the toe of one knee-high panty hose with vase filler (little plastic pellets about the size of seed beads, used as a decorative fill for vases) and tied it off. It was like a small, not-too-tight hacky-sack. I added it to the base of the gnome before sewing him shut, to help weight him down. Worked really well. Will probably add this to all future amigurumi to added weight.
