Crochet gnome ornament for Christmas

The journey of the crochet gnomes began last December when my sister shared her first crochet mini gnome ornament! We were blown by the love you showed them.

Afterward, I decided to host a Gnome CAL(crochet along) in which I shared one new pattern each month. Or at least that was the idea. I should have guessed how addictive they were!

Because, in the end, we ended up with over 40 adorable gnome patterns for every taste and occasion!
