Christmas gnomes

Last week I thought itโ€™s time to crochet a Christmas gnome. I made one, then a second one, and I loved them so much I had to make an other one, and finally I could not stop… ๐Ÿ˜Š The result is that I have more than 20 amigurumi gnomes now. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Here they are together in one picture:

I collected the links to the patterns I used. All of them I crocheted using the same yarns and crochet hook. So there style and size can be compared, you may select your favourite and itโ€™s still not late to make one before Christmas.๐Ÿ˜Š

The yarns I used:

Alize Cotton Gold (55% cotton/45% acrylic; 100g – 330mt/361 yds; hook size 3,5-5 mm)

DMC Mellow (50% Nylon, 50% Polyester; 67 meters / 100 grams) : fur texture

Crochet hook 3 mm

And the patterns:

This one I could not find in English, but after making a few of these, it was not a problem. For the legs dc2togโ€™s used as shown in the chart, to shape the hat slst stitches used instead of scโ€™s.

Though all the above patterns are easy to follow and can be made fast, I think for me this last one worked the best… so I decided to make a similar type of gnome using a thicker yarn (to make the gnome bigger).

So inspired by the above pattern(s), but completely reworked I made the below figure:

Iโ€™ll share the pattern and add pictures in my next post. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Cheers,

Judit
