Have you made your crochet pumpkins yet?
Get ready to add an adorable crochet pumpkin gnome to this year’s fall decorations. I can bet that it will look gorgeous with all your crochet pumpkins as a centerpiece on your table or your bookshelves.
Even better! The pumpkin gnome is designed in two parts. Therefore it is highly customizable. This means you can create your own unique crochet gnome easily.
First, we will make the body and gnome itself. Afterward, we will make 2 crochet pumpkins in different sizes and sew them onto the gnome’s head.
To make this crochet pattern easy for beginners I decided to crochet the pumpkins in flat pieces. Meaning we will crochet them in back-and-forth rows. When we are done we will have a flat piece that we’ll sew together and close both sides with a running stitch.
In the end, we will add the stem and leaves to finish our crochet pumpkins.

How to customize your crochet pumpkin gnome?
First, you can make a he-gnome or she-gnome. All you need to do is change the beard with some curls. Check our beach gnome to see how to make the curls.
While I was sewing the gnome together I liked how it looked with only one pumpkin on the head. So it is up to you to put one or two pumpkins.

Crochet pumpkin gnome pattern
The pattern is written in US crochet terms!
The crochet pumpkin gnome is worked in 3 pieces. First, we will make the gnome’s body. Afterward, we will sew the hands, the hair, and the nose.
When we are done with the gnome’s body we will make 2 crochet pumpkins- one big and one mini pumpkin.
For this pattern, I used sport-weight cotton yarn. My choice was Catania by Schachenmayr as they have so many colors to choose from.
I know that it may be hard to find the same yarn so here are a few substitutes that you can use – Stylecraft DK, Paintbox Yarns Simply DK, Catona by Scheepjes, Cotton 8/4 by Hobbii.
Also, have you heard of yarnsub.com? It is a great site where you can check for substitutes for different yarns.
The final measurement is 18cm/ 7 inches.

Free crochet pumpkin pattern
Onto the gnome’s head you can attach one or two pumpkins and why not even 3?
The pattern that I used for these crochet pumpkins is – The Easy crochet pumpkin pattern which comes in 3 different sizes.
For those who will make their gnome with only one, you need to follow the instructions for the big-size pumpkin.
To make the gnome with two pumpkins on top you need to follow the instructions for the Big and Medium size pumpkins.
In the pattern, you will also find how to crochet a pumpkin stem and the tendrils. Just follow the same instructions.

How to join your gnome parts:
- Sew the beard onto the body right below the brim.
- Sew the nose on top of the beard. Place it in the center.
- Sew the hands. Leave 3-4 stitches between the beard and hands.
- Sew the big pumpkin onto the head of your gnome. I sew mine only on the ribbed rows skipping the rows between. It will keep the shape of your pumpkin round at the bottom.
- Sew the mini pumpkin on top of your big one. You can place it right in the center or a bit left or right as did I.
- Also, you can also make your gnome using only the big pumpkin.
- Use a safety pin to secure them before sewing. Sew them when you like the placement.
