Over the last months, I shared with you so many crochet gnomes and this time I wanted to try something new. Last year, my sister (aka TJ) shared the mini Christmas gnome ornaments. They were a total hit, and the love you showed them was incredible.
Therefore, today I will share with you the free crochet Halloween gnome ornament pattern that you can easily turn into any theme gnome. I crocheted my mini gnomes in candy corn colors to go with my Halloween Candy corn gnome and the whole Halloween gnome collection.

How to customize your mini gnome ornament
Do you know that you can make your own mini witch gnome ornament?
Moreover, this pattern is highly customizable and you can make a bunch of gnome ornaments for every occasion. For example, use purple for the hat and black for the body. Add some orange or green color curls and you will turn it into a mini witch. Make sure to check the crochet witch gnomes we have shared previously and make a set of big and mini gnomes.

Crochet gnome ornament pattern
The pattern is written in US crochet terms!
We are crocheting in continuous rounds. Don’t join your rounds in the end.
We will crochet the gnome ornaments in one piece. It means we will start from the hat and continue on the body.
Afterward, we will crochet the beard, curly hair, and the nose.
SKILL LEVEL: Easy/Beginner
SIZE: 10cm/ 4 inches
For the mini gnome ornaments, I used sport-weight yarn with a 2.50mm crochet hook. I know that it is hard to find the same yarn but there are some other options. I suggest you use a thinner yarn such as DK weight yarn/ light worsted weight yarn. Also, use a smaller hook than the one suggested on your yarn label.
It will guarantee that your gnome ornament will remain small. Here is an online website that will help you determine a substitute for the yarn- yarnsub.com
Materials you’ll need:
– Sport/ fine weight yarn- Yarn Art Jeans 55% cotton, 45% acryl, 50 g, 160 m
colors- white 5 gr, orange 10gr, yellow 10gr, beige 10gr
– crochet hook size 2.5mm
– fiberfill for stuffing
– tapestry needle
SC- single crochet
SS- slip stitch
Inc- increase (make 2 SC in the same stitch)
Dec- decrease ( work 2 SC stitch together)
MR- magic ring
– repeat the stitches in the ** indicated times
FO- fasten off
BLO- back loop only
FLO- front loop only
SC3tog- work 3 single crochet stitches together (decrease)
