Is it this time of the year when everything becomes spooky and enchanted?

In Bulgaria, we don’t celebrate Halloween and over the years it resulted in fewer crochet patterns regarding this particular holiday. Nevertheless, we have a few that you might like and add to your crochet list.

For example, the mini monster keychains were a big hit. Moreover, we see an increase in sales during the holidays in that pattern.

How to crochet a Halloween gnome

Overall pattern notes:

The pattern is written in US crochet terms.

The finished size of the witch gnome is 18cm/ 7 inches.

The crochet witch gnome is worked in one piece which means we will start to crochet from the hat and continue to the body.

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

For this pattern, we used a sport-weight yarn. I suggest you use similar yarn such as DK-weight yarn. You can also use whatever yarn you have in your stash but keep in mind that your gnome will be bigger or smaller depending on the yarn you use.

Here are a few suggestions of the yarn you can use- Yarn Art Jeans, Caron Simply Soft, Stylecraft Special DK, Paintbox Simply DK, Hobbii Cotton 8/4.

When stuffing the body- stuff it well, so it will stay in shape, but don’t overdo it.

Sport/ fine weight yarn- Shachenmayr Catania 100% Cotton, 50 g, 125 m in colors-

Black color(110 black) 20 gr,

Orange color (209 mandarin)  20gr,

Purple color (113 violet) 20gr,

a small amount of Beige for the nose and hands
crochet hook size 2.5mm

Poly fiber fill for stuffing
tapestry needle

Stitch Abbreviation:

SC- single crochet

SS- slip stitch

CH- chain

Rep- repeat

Inc- increase (make 2 SC in same stitch)

Dec- decrease ( work 2 SC stitch together)

MR- magic ring

– repeat the stitches in the ** indicated times

Booth laces:

Take a tapestry needle and a long piece of orange color yarn. Insert it from one side and make the laces.

How to join your gnome parts:

1. Sew the nose onto the center right below the hat’s brim.

2. Sew the hair on both sides of the nose. Leave 2-3 stitches between the nose and hair.

3. Sew the hands right after the hair

4. Sew or use hot glue gun to attach the belt clip onto the gnome’s hat.

5. Sew the legs on the front bottom side.

6. Use safety pins to secure them before sewing. Sew them when you like the placement.
