A festive crochet interlude

Hey hey Christmas elves. I’ve taken a little break from beavering away on Pokemon to crochet a few festive fellows for our team at work.

To create a Scandinavian wonderland, I whipped up a range of cute little festive gnomes, using a pattern from https://missneriss.com/2015/12/03/crochet-christmas-gnome/ – I created a few that were pretty true to the original pattern then mixed it up with a lady gnome, a striped hat and a few larger friends.

To finish off the set, I turned to the latest issue of Crochet Now magazine and an adorable pattern for Rufus the Reindeer by Tracey Coldwell. This issue comes with a Brian the Bear yarn kit and Rufus is one of the alternative makes for the kit in the magazine. I swapped out the green yarn for his jumper with some spare white and grey yarn from the gnomes.
