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.

Crochet Gnome Beard

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.

Crochet Snowman 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. (Add 1/2 a cup of dry beans to the bottom of the body if you want.) This will weigh down the gnome and help him stand.)
2. 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.
3. Sew the buttons on top of the beard.
4. Sew both gnome arms onto the gnome.
5. Wrap the scarf around the gnome and sew it in place.
6. Lightly stuff the hat and sew the hat onto the body.
7. Enjoy your gnome!

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

  1. Thank you so much for your Gnomes. Your creativity is incredible. Maybe in the spring, you can do a bumble bee gnome, a lily of the valley gnome, and a new-growth tree gnome. Just a thought. Thank you again and blessings on your year.
