Crochet mini Easter Gnome with bunny ears

Last year we hosted a gnome-along and shared over 40 free crochet gnome patterns. While creating the first few gnomes, I experimented with different methods, shapes, and sizes.

This adorable set of mini Easter gnomes was made last year and I didn’t find any chance to share it with you. Therefore, this year for Easter we will make some minis.

While designing I got the idea to make the minis match the bid set of Easter Gnomes- the Bunny Gnome and the Carrot Gnome!

The pattern is written in US crochet terminology!

The pattern is written in US crochet terms.

The pattern is worked in one piece. We start from the hat and continue on the body.

The pattern is worked in continuous rounds. Do not join your rounds.

If you use a different weight of yarn, keep in mind that your gnome will turn out bigger or smaller.

I suggest you use a fine/sport or DK weight yarn with a 2.25-2.5mm hook to achieve the size.

When stuffing the body- stuff it well, but don’t overdo it.
