Crochet Gnome: Perfect Makes for Any Season

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

Is the reason we love a crochet gnome because of the outdoor decorations, or did someone in your life happen to mention Gnomeo and Juliet one too many times in your presence?

Whatever the case, these crochet gnomes are guaranteed to win over your heart and have you wanting to grab your yarn and hook to start crocheting away.

If you’re like me, your crocheting plans are influenced by the season (or sometimes, what season you wish it could be). For this crochet gnome pattern collection, I’ve done the leg work to break it up into seasons and bring you the best crochet gnomes I can find so you have to look no further to find exactly what you’re in the mood for.

Most of these patterns use a variety of basic crochet stitches, so make sure that you know how to work a single crochet stitch, double crochet stitch, and slip stitch (sl st) before you start these adorable patterns.

Of course, I might just be partial to my Crochet Christmas Gnome. Adorable in red and gray for the Christmas season. But this darling gnome would also be cute in other colors for year round use.

Spring Gnomes

Oh Spring, the season of flowers and warm temperatures here in Michigan. I love to see more florals in my crocheting as soon as the weather starts to warm up and these gnome patterns are no different.

But whatever it is that I love so much, this beauty would be a beautiful feature of anyone’s spring decor.

      1. Mind boggling that the shop can go MIA so soon after I published the post! I’m still searching for this pattern elsewhere and will replace the link when I find out.

  1. I bought the ghost gnome but there is nothing in the direction that tell you how long or how many strands of yarn to use or how to shape it. It would be nice to know can you send me that information

    1. This post is a collection of patterns by other designers. Typically amigurumi are crocheted with 1 strand of yarn and the shaping is formed by increases and decreases. However, you’d have to reach out to the designer for pattern specific questions.
