A friend of mine asked me if I could crochet a nisse (Christmas gnome/nisse) for her, and she showed me a picture of the one that she had in mind.
I liked the challenge of trying to figure it out, without having a pattern, so I sat down and began working on figuring out the pattern, kind of fun. After many, many, many trials and errors, I finally, got the form I wanted and I am pleased with the final result.

I found a few other pictures to use as inspiration, this one, and these. And googled Bramming nisserne, crochet/hæklet.

 

You can find the pattern, along with other free patterns, in English in the free pattern section og på dansk.
