As with my previously designed gnomes, the cap and beard of this Halloween ghost gnome are made from heart-shaped elements.
For my crochet ghost gnome, I modified my pattern for the Valentine’s Day gnome by changing the body design.
To make this ghost gnome, you will need to crochet a cap, beard, body, and nose, then sew them together. Embellish the gnome with Halloween-themed craft buttons.
I hope you will like my crochet ghost gnome and will make one too!
