Crochet Christmas Gnome

Scheepjes Blog HopWelcome to day three of the Scheepjes Christmas Blog Hop!  Yesterday you would have seen the truly awesome knitted gnome made by my friend Sarah at Crafts From the Cwtch and today I’ve made a crochet version for you!

I absolutely loved making these little guys.  I made a regular gnome, a slightly taller one, and even a lady gnome!

The pattern is really very simple, and it’s definitely possible to whip out one or two of these in an evening.  They make great ornaments, or you could even attach a loop to the top of the hat and hang it in your tree.

So, what will you need?  A couple of shades of red, a grey, a brown, white and off-white mini Catona skeins, and rice!  We’re going fill the bodies with rice, so a little tip: if you crochet loosely, consider using a stocking as a lining, or size your hook down.  The pattern uses a 3mm hook, but you might consider a 2.5mm.

  6. I love the gnomes! Thank you for sharing your pattern and especially in a PDF. Merry Christmas!


  7. Gnomes are too cute! Finally have started making some. Question about the girl gnome’s hair: Do you do it like the beard and just attach it higher under the hat, then pull it to part and tie off in pigtails? Thanks!


    • Thanks! That’s pretty much how I did it, indeed. Except I attached the lengths all the way round so it looks like there’s a part at the front and at the back.

      Good luck!
