How to Customize you Bunny Gnome

This is your gnome so make him unique. Change the colors of his outfit to any color you like. You can change his skin tone too and change the color of his beard. There are also instructions below to make braids for a girl gnome.

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 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 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 or basket. (This will be available later today).

Crochet Gnome Beard (Male Gnome)

CH12 with Grey

Row 1: SC in the 2nd CH from hook and each CH across. Fasten off. (11)

Cut 24 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. Then take the remaining 3 strands and add them as fringe to the other side of the center 3 Single crochet. This will give us our strands for our mustache. (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 o hide them with the hat.

If you choose, braid your mustache 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 better 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 Bunny 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. Stuff and sew Feet to the front of the gnome and the Bunny tail onto the back 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 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.)
3. Sew the arms onto the gnome.
4. Sew the inner bunny ear to the outer bunny ear. Slip the bunny ears into the holes created in the gnome hat and secure them with the yarn tails we left when fastening off.
5. Lightly stuff the hat and sew the hat onto the body.
6. Sew the carrot onto one of the gnome’s hands and to the body.
7. Enjoy your gnome!

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