Rampenisse/Gnome/Tomte Hat | Crochet Pattern

It's that time of year again...

when we turn our loved ones into rampenissen,
and here's my favorite rampenisse in my father's bunad from Nordmøre, Norway.
Complete with crocheted nisse hat.

The pattern can be found at the following site:
(Please click on the sites to take you to the listings).

Optional ribbon can be added for that Scandinavian flair,

or optional eye slits in the event its worn over the eyes like the gnomes do, apparently.

 And a removable nose.

 With eye openings and a nose                                          and without either...  

See the naughty rampenisse; he is eating the "Firklover" without removing the wrapper!?!?!
(...mmmmm Firklover mmmmm...)

I hope your holiday preparation is full of fun and laughter!

And of course lots of

Bunting or Garland

 Laying around looking pretty

Ornaments (or earrings?)

Oh and wouldn't they make a lovely present topper?

How about some early holiday gift giving preparation?

These flowers so fun to make, keep and to gift. 
The pattern includes dozens of step-by-step photos, as well as a shortened version 
AND two video links for extra added assistance. 
Once you make a few for yourself you will likely find your friends and family requesting them. 

These were crocheted in Scheepjes Catona yarn.

Happy Early Holidays and
