The Premium Printable PDF Pattern

Below you will find the free crochet fishing gnome pattern with all the instructional photos 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.

Fasten off leaving a long yarn end. Now we will sew this row of petals into a rose shape.

rolling up the crochet flower

First, take the row of rose petals and slowly start to roll the foundation chain side up.

top and bottom of rolled flower

Your roll should look like the photos above. The top looks like a flower and the bottom side is a flat circle.

sewing flowers together

Now using the long yarn end and a yarn needle, sew back and forth around the bottom of the rose to secure all the layers in place. When all the petals are secure, knot the yarn end. Use your yarn end to sew the rose to the hat.

adding flowers to hat

I used my hook to pull both yarns ends through separate stitches on the hat and then knotted them on the inside. From here you can use hot glue to position them better or use the yarn ends to make a few more stitches to secure the flower.

Flower Pot

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 5: *SC in next 3 ST, work 2SC in next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 3 times. (15)

Row 6: SC in next 15 STs. (15)

Slip Stitch to the next stitch to smooth out the edge and fasten off. Add a small amount of stuffing to the flower pot and sew or glue a rose on top of the pot.

Arms (Make 2)

Skintone (buff)

Row 1: Work 6 SC in a MC. (6)
Alternative Row 1: CH2, Work 6 SC into 2nd CH from hook. (6)

Row 2: SC in the next 6 Sts. (6)

Change to Light Green yarn (Tea Leaf).

Row 3-9: SC in the next 6 Sts. (6)

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

Feet (Make 2)

With Charcoal.

Row 1: Work 6 Sc in a MC. (6)
Alternative Row 1: CH2, Work 6 SC into 2nd CH from hook. (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. 

Fasten off leaving a 6-inch yarn end to sew the ear to the side of the hat.

Larger Gnome Nose

With Buff or a skin tone colored yarn.

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

Row 2: *SC in the next ST, Work 2SC into the next ST* repeat from *to* a total of times. (9)

Row 3: SC in the next 9 STs. (9)

Row 4: *SC in next ST, SC2TOG* repeat from *to* a total of 3 times. . (6)

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

gnome beard

Crochet Gnome Beard (Male Gnome)

CH12 with Soft 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. (See Photo Above)

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.

gnome braids

Braids (Make 2) (For Female Gnome)

CH7 with any hair color.

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.

Crochet Rose 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.
2. Sew the feet to the front of 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. 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.)
4. Sew the flower pot to both gnome arms. Sew both gnome arms onto the gnome.
5. Sew the flowers onto the gnome hat. Lightly stuff the hat and sew the hat onto the body.
6. Enjoy your gnome!

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

    • I will continue to make gnomes until the trend has completely died (which I do not see happening anytime soon.) This year I am doing nature-inspired gnomes. I have done job gnomes, holiday gnomes, and sports/hobby gnomes. Though I still have more ideas in those categories and will have to add to them as I get inspired.
