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 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 or basket.

Tail Feathers

Make 8, two gold, two red, two orange, and two dark brown.

CH17

Row 1: SC in 2nd CH from hook, HDC in next CH, DC in next 12 CH, HDC in next CH, SC in last CH.

Fasten off and weave in your ends. Once all your feathers are made, first block them so that they lay flat. You can do this by wetting the feathers and laying them flat to dry. You can place a heavy object on them if they will not lay flat.

Next we will stiffen the feathers with white school glue (PVA glue). Just make a mixture of one part glue and one part water. Use a paint brush to brush a layer of the glue mixture on the back of the feathers. Let it dry before sewing (or hot gluing) the gnome together.

Crochet Gnome Beard (Male Gnome)

CH12 with 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 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 Gold (or 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 Turkey 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. 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 snood (red thing by turkey nose) and nose on top of the beard.
3. Sew the arms onto the gnome.
4. Lay the turkey feathers down and sew them to each other in the position that you want them, then sew them onto the gnome. Sew the extra brown circle on top of the overlapped feather ends.
5. Lightly stuff the hat and sew the hat onto the body.
6. Enjoy your gnome!

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