It’s time for Christmas in July! 🎄Last year I had so much fun giving you inspiration to get started on your Christmas makes that I thought I would do it again this year! We all know how fast time flies and if you want to make things for the season the time to start is now. 🙂

I wanted to make this adorable Crochet Gnome Towel Topper last year, but time got away from me. So this year, I decided it would be my first Christmas make. He is super quick and easy to stitch up – the free pattern can be found here at Nana’s Crafty Home. She also has a link to a paid printable PDF if that is something you would like to have.
I used Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek yarn in Red, Kale, White, and Blush to stitch up my Gnomes. I used a J/6mm hook. The pattern recommends an H/5mm hook but I found I needed to go larger to accommodate the plastic ring inside the Gnome. We all crochet a little differently, so just adjust hook size as you need to on any project you are working on. 🙂
These are the 3-inch plastic rings that I used to hang the towels from. You’ll need some flour sack towels to make his beard and 3/4-inch white buttons.
Once your Gnome is stitched up, you simply slip the towel through the ring inside and button him over your cabinet or oven handle for a cute – and useful – Christmas decoration. It’s so easy to take the towel out for washing without having to take your Gnome off the handle!
Of course these would be so cute any time of the year – just make them in colors to match your kitchen!
