How to crochet a Gingerbread Gnome?

For the Gingerbread gnome, I used my Santa Gnome pattern as a base! When you change the colors and add a few finishing touches you will have a brand new gnome!

You will find the Santa gnome pattern in the pattern notes below.

In addition, in this post, I will show you how to make the frosting of your gnome’s hat and turn your Santa into a Gingerbread Gnome!

How to start your Gingerbread gnome and how to make the frosting

First, start your gnome with white color and follow the Santa Gnome pattern till round 19. Afterward, fasten off the white color and switch to camel color(beige/light brown).

The next round is worked in BLO (back loop only). So, work round 20 in the BLO. We will come back to this round and complete the frosting once the gnome is finished!

Continue following the Santa Gnome pattern till the hat and body of your gnome are complete! But don’t change your color for the hat’s brim. In the Santa gnome, we used white and for the Gingerbread we continued with our main color (camel).

For the hands, start with white and switch to camel (beige/light brown) color after round 6!

How to make the frosting on the hat:

Insert your hook in any front loop of rnd 20. Pull up a loop, * CH 6,  SC in 2nd from your hook, HDC in next 4, skip 1 stitch from rnd 20, SS in next 3 *5 times, In the last repeat you will have 2 sts left instead of 3, SS in the last 2 sts. You must have 5 drops of cream.

How to join your Gingerbread gnome parts:

  1. First, sew the beard onto the body, right below the hat’s brim

2. Second, sew the nose on top of the beard. Place it in the center!

3. Thirdly, sew the hands leaving 3-4 stitches between the beard and the hands.

4. Take a tapestry needle and make a line of frosting around the hat using the basic embroidery stitch.

5. Lastly sew the buttons in a straight line onto the hat pointing towards the nose.

6. When you have all the pieces secured it is time to sew the frosting ends onto the hat. Attach them from the tip of each drop!

7. Last, don’t forget to use safety pins to secure the pieces. Sew after you are sure you like the placement!
