Wedding gnome pattern overview

The wedding gnome is worked in one piece. We will crochet the body and continue on the hat!

Afterward, we will add the flowers and the wedding skirt!

The pattern is worked in continuous rounds, which means we will not join the round. It will be better to use stitch markers to indicate your first stitch or a piece of different-colored yarn.

In some of the previous gnomes we used cardboard for the base, but for the wedding gnome we didn’t. It stays still even without it. So the cardboard is optional.

How to customize your wedding gnome

The pattern is pretty customizable and you can crochet a unique gnome to suit your needs. You can change the wedding dress, and add flowers to the skirt. Put more flowers onto the hat.

Moreover, you can totally change the gnome and turn it into a fairy or princes. Join our Facebook group where you will find plenty of inspiration!

How to sew your crochet gnome together?

First, start by sewing the nose onto the gnome. Sew it right below the brim of your hat.

Second, place and sew the hair on both sides right next to the nose.

Third, Sew the hands on both sides. Leave 2-4 stitches between the hair and the hands.

After that take the skirt and sew it in the middle of your gnomes body.

Lastly, place a few flower onto the hat. I used 3 flowers. The flower bouquet is made with dry flowers not crochet. You can still use 1 small flower for her vouquet if you wish yours to be crochet.

  2. Hello. Thanks for the pattern. As a note, in the body of the gnome, row 31 is listed twice with two sets of directions. Can you confirm the proper directions for row 31. Many thanks, Maureen K
