Crochet Pilgrim Gnomes ready for Thanksgiving

I really had fun with these pilgrim gnomes. The male and female gnomes both have unique hats and other unique features. I have made a gnome for almost every holiday now. You can check all the gnomes on the free gnomes patterns page.

How to Customize your Crochet Pilgrim Gnome

This is your gnome so make him (or her) unique. Change the colors of his body to any color you like. You can change their skin tone too and change the color of their beard or braids.

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 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 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.

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 Pilgrim 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 bodies. Stuff and sew Feet to the front of both gnomes.
2. Sew on the apron for female gnome and arms for both gnomes.
3. Sew collars onto both gnomes. The female gnome collar will touch at the front of the gnome. The male gnome collar will have a 1/2 inch gap in the front. You may need to gather the collar a little bit at the top. The hat will cover the top of the collar.
4. For Male gnome, 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.
5. For the female gnome, sew the nose in the center of the gnome and sew the braids on each side of the nose.
6. For both gnomes, lightly stuff the hat and sew the hats onto the bodies.
7. Enjoy your gnomes!
