Tips to Make This Free Gnome Crochet Pattern
- Confession: the yarn I used, Yarn Bee Goodness Grapefruit set of mini-skeins, is out of stock. You can use any fingering or fine weight yarn to make this little mini-gnome, though. And if you want a set of mini-skeins like I used, there are a lot out there, like this set that has some great color combination options.
- Make sure you have one of the teeny-tiny size E crochet hook like this one. You are not going to find that size in a normal set of hooks that you might have lying around. Trust me, this one is in the “tiny size hooks” sets only.
- Get ready to have some fun. Making this gnome is so fun and just a little silly. They’re really basic, normal beginner stitches for the most part but the pattern includes fun things like making the brim and the beard that are totally unique.

Hi Sarah, I fell in love with your sweet crocheted gnome. Rushed out to Hobby Lobby this morning and picked up the yarn.
I have been trying for hours to get it right.
It doesn’t come out the shape of yours – kind of teardrop looking.. mine comes out like a fat wavy pumpkin.
pulled it out and started over 3 times.
read and reread the pattern and still the same results.
I have crocheted a lot through the years, maybe I have lost my touch.
tried a smaller hook but the same result.
I feel sad that I can’t get it right.
I am sure your pattern is right – just me :)
Not sure you can help me :)
Off to try again. Then almost time to start dinner.
Thanks for all your fun ideas.
You know, I am no expert crocheter–and to be honest, I did have to back up a couple of times. But I bet the biggest difference is that I hold tension pretty tight on my thread. Also, part of his shape is really not apparent until you stuff ’em. I really thought mine was ruined until I got it stuffed (I thought it looked horrid in my hand, all floppy and weird). And I used felt to stuff it, so maybe that has a little more stiffness to it than typical stuffing, so that might have helped kind of press and stretch a little. Try again. I promise the pattern is right.
