Little Gnome

Hey guys! 
Here's the latest little crochet project I worked up...

I used the pattern 'Simply a Gnome!' amigurumi pattern from Else's Bellas Artes free patterns (also find it on Ravelry).

I modified it to make it just the right size for a keychain by switching to tan yarn at end of round 7, switching to blue at the end of round 10, and finishing off at the end of round 15. For the bottom I finished off at the end of round 4.  I also just freehand cut out a smaller beard. For the loop I attached yarn to the first row on the gnome hat with a slip stitch, single chained 15, then joined with a slip stitch to the next stitch right beside the beginning slip stitch and voila! =o)

I made this little guy for a swap on Swap-bot and it is going to be so hard to give him away....luckily he's so super-quick & easy to make I can make another one to keep for myself! ..hehehehe

Hope y'all are having a great week so far!
Love ya's!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
