{Crochet Pattern} Free Gnome Pattern

Updated on February 4, 2013

Learn How To Make A Crochet Gnome

Don't you want to learn how to make a crochet gnome like the one pictured here?

I don't know exactly when it was that I became so enamored with gnomes but ever since that fateful day I just can't get enough of them.

I came up with the following pattern after seeing one similar online early 2003. Now there are dozens of Crochet Gnome Patterns out there for you to choose from.

You can join our Flickr Group 'Crochet and Knit Gnomes' to share your creations. Do you have a favorite gnome pattern? Share with us in the comments below.

Supplies You Will Need for Your Gnome - Yarn, Crochet Hook, Tapestry Needle and Fiber Fill

- Yarn for Skin Tone

- Yarn for hat, Pants and Jacket

- Fiber Fill Stuffing

- Safety Eyes

- e Crochet Hook

Bulk Buy: Darice Shank Back Solid Eyes 9mm 8/Pkg Black 51609 (6-Pack)

Although these are called 'safety' eyes I wouldn't use them on the gnome if you are going to give it to a child under 5 years of age.

My Favorite Movie: The Gnome Mobile - Lot's of Sunshine and Rainbows Abound

The Gnome-Mobile
The Gnome-Mobile

Directed by Robert Stevenson in 1967 with Walter Brennan, Matthew Garber

I watched this movie as a child and loved revisiting it with my son. When he was 5 years old he was so excited about the Gnome Mobile that I allowed him to Decorate the car with removable vinyl stickers. It was a magical 2 months for him as we drove around town in our very own 'Gnome Mobile'.
