Crochet daisy gnome free pattern

Sharing is caring!

Today, I’m excited to share a fun new project: the Free Daisy Gnome Pattern. This cute gnome has a flower pot filled with crochet daisy flowers on its head. Inspired by the colorful flower pots on balconies everywhere, this pattern is perfect for adding a cheerful touch to your crochet collection.

So scroll down for the free pattern, or buy the ad-free, printable PDF HERE.

The inspiration

One morning, as I was dropping my baby off at kindergarten, I noticed a wooden crate brimming with daisy flowers by the front door. The next day, while traveling with my husband to meet some friends, I saw balconies overflowing with flower pots, showcasing a variety of blooms, from roses to daisies.

So, inspired by these sights, I decided to design a gnome with a pot full of flowers.

The design and construction of the daisy gnome

After last year’s crochet gnome-along, I felt inspired to design my first gnome. You might not know this, but NJ has created all the 40+ gnome patterns. So, I decided it was time to join in the fun, and here it is—my very first crochet gnome pattern.

Since this is my first attempt, I wanted to create something simple that even advanced beginners can enjoy. That’s why the daisy pot gnome is crocheted in one piece without sewing the body, hat, and pot separately. Of course, the hands, nose, beard, and daisy flowers still need to be sewn on, but at least the main parts are all in one piece.

How to Customize Your Flower Gnome

The best part of the flower gnome is that it is highly customizable. Here are some suggestions:

  • Change the colors to match your personality or home decor. As you can see from the picture for the Rose flower gnome, I used the green shades instead of the lilac shades I used for the daisy one.
  • Use different flowers. I used the easy crochet rose pattern for the rose gnome and made them in different colors.
  • Change the beard or add braids. For the braids, check the butterfly gnome pattern. The technique for making them is the same. Adjust the length accordingly. For the beard, check the free Grinch gnome pattern or Witch gnome pattern.

How to sew the daisies

You can place the daisies as you wish. I left a bit of space between them because I wanted some of the green parts of the pot to be visible. So, after you like the placement of the flower, take a long piece of green yarn and start sewing it.

First, I insert the needle through the green

part and then through the back side of the daisy and again through the green part.

I repeat these steps till the daisy is secured on top of the green part of the gnome. Then, without cutting the yarn, place the next daisy and repeat the same. Sew all the daisies using this method.

First, take the beard and sew it under the brim.

Second, take the nose and sew it onto the center of the top part of the beard.

Sew the hands on both sides, leaving 3-4 stitches between the hands and beard.
