Epic Crochet Wizard Gnome – Easy Free Pattern

This crochet wizard gnome is ready to start an epic adventure with you. He is intended to be one of my Halloween gnomes but he is great for anyone who loves to read epic adventures, plays D&D, or is a fan of a certain grey wizard in a certain trilogy.

Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for this crochet wizard gnome. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauge, and sizing information. If you would like all of this in a nicely formatted printable, you can purchase the Ad-Free Large Print PDF Pattern on Etsy.

Crochet Wizard Gnome

Who doesn’t want a little magic in their life? This little wizard is one of my favorite gnomes designed so far. There is just something about his worn appearance. He is very close to the original gnome pattern with a few fun twists.

If you are going on an adventure you will need a warm cape, so our grey wizard gnome has a dark grey cape. His hat has a wide brim to keep the sun and rain out of his eyes and a walking staff to help him along his way. He is ready for an epic journey.

How to Customize your Crochet Wizard Gnome

This is your wizard so make him unique. Change the colors of his outfit to make him a blue or white wizard. You can change his skin tone to any color you like and change the color of his beard.

I like to use the Red Herat 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.

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. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag or basket. The Premium Pattern can be purchased on Etsy.

For the white orb, just stick the yarn end in the center of the orb. Use a little hot glue to attach the white orb to the top of your dowel rod. Ta Da! You have a wizard’s staff.

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 Above.)

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.

Crochet Wizard 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 the gnome body.
2. Stuff and sew feet to the front of the gnome.
3. Sew the cape along row 23 of the body on the backside of the gnome.
4. Sew the beard onto the gnome. The beard will have the crocheted row shaped like a U. Style the beard and trim it. Sew nose on top of the beard.
5. Glue the staff to one of the arms and sew the arms on the body.
6. Do not stuff the hat, sew it to the body of the gnome. Grip the hat in a fist and scrunch it to create the crinkled look.
7. Enjoy your gnome!

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