Store Clerk Gnome
"Grocery shopping, the pet store, the gas station, and so many more stores would not be selling anything if it wasn't for the friendly store clerks. This crochet store clerk gnome is a little thank you to them. This crochet gnome pattern can be customized in a variety of ways. You can make the gnome a man by adding the beard instead of braids and placing the name tag on his hat. Change the shirt, apron and hat colors to match the store brand colors and place a store logo on the hat to represent a certain store. Placing a paw print on the hat can represent a pet store and so on. Feel free to change the gnome's skin color and hair color as well. I like to use Red Heart Super Saver Aran, Buff, Cafe Latte, and Coffee for skin tones. "
