I like to use the Red Heart Super Saver colors Aran for fair skin, buff for medium skin tones, cafe latte for dark skin tones, and coffee for very dark skin tones.

The Premium Printable PDF Pattern

Below you will find the free crochet fishing gnome pattern with all the instructional photos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

Cut 21  eight-inch strands of yarn for the beard. Group three strands together and attach them to the 7 center single crochet like you would add fringe to a scarf. (See Photo Above)

Before stuffing your gnome, sew your beard onto your 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 to hide them with the hat.

If you choose, braid your beard and secure it 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 hold that shape.

If you wish, you can untwist the yarn in the beard to have more hair-like strands.

Cut 12 10 inch strands of gold yarn for the two braids. Attach one strand of yarn to each Single Crochet like you would attach fringe to a scarf. Grab 3 groups of four strands and braid the hair together. Use a piece of yarn to secure the braids at the bottom. Sew the braids onto the body of the gnome before stuffing the gnome.

Crochet Bee Gnome Assembly Instructions

You can use a yarn needle and yarn to sew each piece together in the order listed below or you can hot glue the pieces together (this is what I did) if they are not going to be played with by kids.

1. Stuff gnome body.
2. Sew the feet to the front of the gnome.
3. Sew the beard onto the gnome. The beard will have the crocheted row shaped like a U. Style the beard and trim it. Sew the nose on top of the beard. (Or if making a girl gnome, sew the nose in the center of the gnome and sew the braids on each side of the nose.)
4. Sew both gnome arms onto the gnome.
5. Sew the beehive hole, flowers, and little bee to the beehive hat.
6. Stuff the hat and sew it onto the gnome’s body.
7. Enjoy your gnome!

  1. I have enjoyed your gnomes! Even though I have not made a number of them, I love them and plan to make some of them. This one is absolutely adorable.

    Thank you.

  2. I am working on the beehive gnome hat. Says Rnds. 14-16 sc in each st (42) but then continues on with Rnd. 15. Is this just a typo on Rnd. numbers?

  3. I’ve made 6 of your gnomes so far and absolutely love them. I made the doctor gnome for my rheumatologist and she really got a big kick out of it. I use a size G hook when I make them because of arthritis so they’re a little bigger.
