Crochet Cupid Gnome

All of my gnomes are made from the same base pattern then given there own person touches to make them unique. This gnome has his own unique set of wings. They are a little smaller than the angel gnome wings. He also has a bow and arrow to shoot during Valentine’s day.

How to Customize your Cupid Gnome

This is your gnome so make him unique. Change the colors of his diaper to any color you like. You can change his skin tone too and change the color of his beard.

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 Ad-Free PDF Pattern

Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos 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 print out 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.

Cupid’s Bow and Arrow

For the Bow.

CH 14 with Brown

Row 1: SC in 2nd CH from hook, SC in next 3 CH, Work 2 SC in next CH, SC in next 3 CH, Work 2 SC in next CH, SC in last 4 CH.

Fasten off and weave in your ends.

For the Arrow.

CH10 with Pink.

Row 1: SC in 2nd CH from hook, SC in next 8 CH.

Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Now take your two pieces and pin them to a surface to stiffen. Apply Elmer’s (PVA) glue to the pieces and let dry overnight. I used a sponge covered with plastic wrap to pin to, but you can do the same process with a piece of cardboard.

Once dry, glue or sew the arrow to the bow. Cut out a triangle for the arrow tip and a shape for the end feathers. Glue or sew these piece to the arrow.

Now, take a 5-inch piece of yarn and tie a knot on one side. Use your yarn needle to pull the yarn through one end of the bow, the end of the arrow, and the other end of the bow. Tie another knot on this side and clip the yarn close to the knots to create a bowstring.

Crochet Gnome Beard

CH12 with White.

Row 1: SC in the 2nd CH from hook and each CH across. Fasten off. (11)

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.

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 to hide them with the hat.

If you choose, braid your beard 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 hold that shape.

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

Crochet Cupid 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. Sew or Glue the diaper points together. Insert the gnome body into the diaper and then stuff the gnome body. Stuff and sew Feet to the front of the gnome where there are openings in the diaper.
2. 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.
3. Sew the arms onto the Bow and arrow, then sew the arms to the body.
4. Lightly stuff the hat and sew the hat onto the body.
5. Sew the wings onto the back of the gnome.
6. Enjoy your gnome!

I truly hope you enjoyed the crochet cupid gnome pattern and will check back for more fun crochet gnome patterns.
