Amigurumi Gnome Free Crochet Pattern

This amigurumi gnome free crochet pattern was designed as my spring amigurumi pattern for my grandmother. I live 1500 miles away from my grandmother and every few months I like to send her a little crocheted figure to keep her company.

I used to spend countless hours working with my grandmother, sewing quilts, dresses, and outfits. We made the fraternity robes for my cousin. There were a lot of good memories, but now being so far away, I need a way to show her I love her and to keep her company.

So my little amigurumi critters are sent with my love to sit on her shelves, side tables and fireplace mantle. A little piece of my heart goes with each one to her.

I have made so many items for her, snowmen, penguins, monkeys, and she puts them out on her shelf during the right seasons. Just a while ago she listed out everything I had made her and I found she did not have very much to put out during spring.

I fell in love with the Scandinavian Santa Gnome and wanted to create a fun garden gnome version. So this is my take of the Scandinavian Amigurumi Gnome for the Spring.

But I could not stop there. This little Gnome needed a loving wife that could boss him around. I am not sure why I think she looks bossy, she just does to me. 

For the yarn for this project I used a variety of Red Heart Super Saver Worsted weight yarn and some Big Twist Value yarn that I already had on hand.

Then take the remaining 3 strands and add them as fringe to the other side of the center 3 Sc. This will give us our strands for our mustache. (See Photo Below)

Before stuffing your gnome, sew your beard on to you gnome in a U shape. Make sure to leave room for the nose and keep the ends close to the edge of the top of the body to be able o hide them with the hat.

If you choose, braid your mustache and secure with a small piece of yarn.

Give your beard a little trim to shape and lightly mist it with some water, style the beard and let it dry that way to better hold that shape.

    Very touching story about you and your grandmother. Darling gnome. Will get ad-free pattern through Ravelry. I was wondering what is the approximate height of the gnome.
    Thanks very much.

    1. Lindsey

      April 18, 2019 at 6:46 am

      7.5 inches tall. I am so happy you like it.

    Awh, these are super cute. How lovely for your nan to receive such fun little gifts from you.

      April 22, 2019 at 2:21 am

      Thank you. I made a mistake once. I did not send little gifts to my mom like this, and when she passed away I found out how much she adored what I made her. Now I am making this a priority. Crochet is a wonderful way to show someone you love them.

    I fell in love with the bossy lady gnome from your post.
    I need a bit of help. For Row 10 of the hat, when I do the 2nd and 3rd rounds, the stitch count doesn’t add up. Should I just do sc in the last few stitches (instead of making sure it’s sc in next 4 st and 2sc in the next)? Or is it sc all around?
    Thank you for sharing your pattern!

    1. Lindsey

      June 11, 2019 at 1:10 pm

      Row 10 should be *Sc in the next 4 sts, 2 SC in the next stitch* Repeat this a total of 3 times. That is 4+2 for each repeat, times 3 to get 18 stitches. Then Row 11 you will SC in each stitch around. Can you tell me how many stitches you have left over? This will help me determine where the stitch count is being thrown off.

      1. Mimi

        June 11, 2019 at 11:35 pm

        I frogged the whole thing yesterday and tried again. I thought I had to repeat Row 10 (entirely) three times. It works! Thank you for the quick reply and help! 🙂

    Is there any way to reduce the height of the doll by reducing the number of stitches? This is such a cute pattern, but 7.5 inches is a bit too tall for what I need the gnome for 🙁

    1. Lindsey

      September 4, 2019 at 5:47 am

      You would need to reduce the number of rows worked to reduce the height, but then your gnome will be the same width he/she would just be shorter. How much shorter are you trying to make the gnome?
