"My version is quite simple, since it doesn't have legs and arms. It consists of a body, nose, hat and wool fluff for the beard. You need filling to stuff the body up and a 2.5 mm (diameter) wooden bead, or you can use filling instead of a bead. Also, you will need a sewing / tapestry needle and sewing thread. For the gnome's body I used doubled sport yarn and a 3mm hook. Stitches in US crochet terms: chain (ch), single crochet (sc), single crochet 2 together (sc2tog), half double crochet (hdc), half double crochet 2 together (hdc2tog), double crochet (dc)."
