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.

  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!

    • Hi Kylie
      I am just working on this gnome using Bernat Premium yarn and a 3 hook. The body is 3 inches tall and the hat 6 1/2 inches tall. Hope that helps!

  15. Am working on making this gnome. You call for 40 8 cm pieces of yarn for the beard. But only use 26 pieces. And it seems like 8 cm is too short, is it not? Shouldnt the pieces be 16 cm long, so 8 cm when folded in half. And only cutting 26 pieces. No one else has mentioned this, so wondering what I am missing???

  16. Thank you for answering. I did cut my beard pieces longer, then had to trim them! ha So yes, the pieces need to be short. Mine turned out really cute. Will be making more.

        Hello

        Am hoping I can answer you this way.. I dont do Instagram and have no idea how to add a picture on Ravelry!! A little bit behind on computer knowledge. Will send a picture on this email, hope it works.

        It wasnt til I finished the gnome and then googled on how to do amigurumi that I realized mine is inside out! ha Who knew!!! My next ones will be done properly.

        I used Bernat Premium yarn as I had no idea what the yarn that you used was, and had this on hand. Worked fine but think I will try a thinner yarn for the beard, or use less yarn. My beard doesnt look quite right. But still pleased with the result!!

    These are very cute! I have a glass gnome (from Norway) who looks just like this. You suggest 4-6 balls of the Catona – how many gnomes does this make please as I am hoping to make several? Thank you.
