Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for this crochet hula gnome couple. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauge, and sizing information. If you would like all of this in a nicely formatted printable format, you can purchase the Ad-Free Large Print PDF Pattern.

Designing the Hula GnomeCouple

I designed the Summer Vacation gnome first, then summer hit and I was seeing all the little hula figures. I almost slapped my forehead. A hula gnome was a must for the collection.

I sat down and wrote out all the details a hula gnome would need. The lady needed flowers, a grass skirt, and a lei. Then it would be cute if she was dancing for her gentleman as he played his ukulele for her. Yep, I had my work cut out for me.

The crochet hula gnome couple is a perfect summer project. Whip up this free crochet pattern and let these two ease you into summer.

How to Customize your Crochet Hula Gnome

This crochet gnome pattern can be customized in a variety of ways. Instructions are provided for both the male and female gnome.

Change the swim trunks or swimming suit colors to any color you like. You can change the gnome’s skin color and hair color as well. I like to use Red Heart Super Saver Aran(light tones), Buff(Medium tone), Cafe Latte(Dark tone), and Coffee(Very dark tone) for skin tones.

Make this gnome unique and special with your customization.

Purchase 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 ad-free large font PDF version of the pattern. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag or basket.

I moved all the photos to the end of the PDF so you can reference them as you needed them and print just the pattern without using up as much ink. The Premium PDF version of the pattern can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry.

Flowers (Make 4 or more)

Note: Work the entire row into a Magic Circle.

Row 1: Working into a Magic Circle, *SLST, CH1, DC, CH1* Repeat from *to* a total of 5 times. SLST. Fasten off, pull the Magic Circle close to create a flower.

For the flower center, take a piece of yellow yarn about 6 inches long, make a knot in the center of the yarn and make 3 more knots directly over the first knot to make it larger. Weave both of the ends of the yarn through the flower so the knot will sit in the center of the flower. Secure and sew the flower to the gnome hat before attaching the hat to the gnome.

Arms (Make 2 per gnome)

With Skin Color

Row 1: Work 6 SC in a MC. (6)

Row 2-8: SC in the next 6 Sts. (6)

Fasten off leaving a 10 inch tail to sew the arm to the body.

Feet (Make 2 per gnome)

With Buff

Row 1: Work 6 Sc in a MC. (6)

Row 2: *2SC in the next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (12)

Row 3-5: SC in the next 12 STs. (12)

Fasten off, leaving a long tail.

Lightly stuff the feet and sew them to the front of the gnome body. 

Nose (Make 1 per gnome)

With Skin Color

Row 1: Work 6 SC in a MC. (6)

Row 2-3: SC in the next 6 STs. (6)

Fasten off leaving a 10 inch tail to sew the nose to the body.

Crochet Gnome Beard (Male Gnome)

CH12 with Black or Coffee.

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. (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 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.

Braids (Make 2) (For Female Gnome)

CH7 with Black or Coffee

Row 1: Sc in the 2nd Ch from hook and each Ch across. Fasten off. (6)

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.

CH 51

Row 1: SC in 2nd CH from the hook. SC in the next 49 CH. (50)

Fasten off and weave in your ends. Cut 50 pieces of 4 inch yarn and use one piece of yarn to make a fringe in each stitch. Trim your hula skirt so it is only 1.5 inches long.

Lei Necklace

Note: We will create a strand of picots to create the lei. If you find this difficult you can choose to make a simple chain in place of this bumpier necklace.

To create a picot you will chain, then come back long the chain and slip stitch to make a small circle. Then you will continue creating more chains and adding length to the necklace and repeat the process.

Row 1: *CH 4, SLST to the 3rd CH from the hook* repeat from *to* a total of 15 times.

Fasten off. You do not need to weave in the ends. I just tucked them into the center of the gnome body.

Ukulele

Note: The Ukulele is worked all in one row. We will create a chain, work down one side of the chain. Work into the last stitch to swing around to the other side of the chain. Then work half way up the other side of the chain. I decided to write this section in Steps instead of rows with several instruction photos.

Step 1: CH 9, SC in the 2nd CH from the hook and into the next 3 CH.

Crochet Hula 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 and Sew Feet to the front of the gnome.
2. Stuf the gnome’s body and sew the hula skirt around 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.
4. Sew the Leis in place, draping them lightly under the nose and tucking the ends into the body of the gnome.
5. For the male gnome, sew the ukulele to the arms of the gnome. Sew arms onto the body. (Sew the braids on top of the arms for the female.)
6. Sew the nose on top of the beard or between the braids.
7. Sew the flowers to the hat.
8. Stuff the hat and sew the hat onto the body.
9. Enjoy your gnome!

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