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.

Crochet Golfing 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. Stuff and sew Feet to the front of the gnome.
2. Take the sweater vest and carefully place it on the gnome’s body. Sew it in place.
3. Take the gnome arms and tuck them into the sweater vest armholes and sew to the body.
4. 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.)
5. Lightly stuff the hat and sew the hat onto the body.
6. Sew or glue one golf club to the gnome’s hand and sew or glue the golf bag over the gnome’s other shoulder.
7. Enjoy your gnome!

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