Designing the Crochet Mrs. Claus Gnome

Every time I design a gnome I want it to be unique and different from all the other crochet gnomes. With the crochet Mrs. Claus Gnome, I got really creative. She has a completely different hairstyle from any other gnomes. Her short grey curls are charming and just peek out from underneath her bonnet.

I gave her a full skirt and a white apron. I figured, Mrs. Claus is an excellent cook and keeps her dear Santa Claus nice and plump. She just makes me think of cozy Christmases with my grandmother.

The Crochet Mrs. Claus gnome is the perfect companion for the Santa gnome. Whip them both up in no time with this free crochet pattern.

How to Customize your Crochet Mrs. Claus Gnome

This crochet gnome pattern can be customized in a variety of ways. You can change her dress color, hair color, and skin tone. Make her outfit green or green and red.

If you change her skin tone, try using 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.

2. Sew the Apron onto the gnome and the nose on top of the apron.
3. Sew the arms onto the gnome.
