March crochet gnome- Leprechaun gnome pattern

This year we are hosting a crochet gnome along in which we share a new crochet gnome pattern each month. Each gnome represents the month of its release.

Firstly, we started with January and crocheted a winter gnome with some adorable mini snowflakes. Check the pattern here- the January gnome pattern.

Secondly, for February we shared the crochet Valentine’s day gnomes. In February we made 2 sets of Valentine’s gnomes. One of the sets was designed with beginner crocheters in mind and the second one has a few new techniques to upgrade and gain new crochet skills. Find them here- Valentine’s gnome set 1 and Valentine’s gnome set 2.

Before we start with the crochet St Patrick’s day gnome make sure to check the CAL(crochet along) page to find all the information and the release dates of each crochet gnome pattern.

Yarn + substitutes

Before I started the crochet gnome along I saw a lot of different crochet gnomes made with sport or DK weight yarn. Unfortunately, for some of us it can be hard to work and find these yarns. Nevertheless, I know how important the yarn can be in a crochet project so I decided to use worsted-weight yarn.

It has the perfect thickness- not too bulky, nor too thin. And when we use a smaller hook it becomes the perfect yarn for crocheting amigurumi gnome.

The yarn I used is Bernat Premium yarn by Yarnspirations. It has a variety of colors and is so easy to work with. Needless to say, you can use whatever yarn you have in your stash.

If you want to see different variations of the crochet gnomes made with all kinds of yarns make sure to join our Facebook group- Passionatecrafter-free crochet patterns. With over 8000 members you will be amazed by all the creativity, will be able to get help if you have any questions, and make new crochet friends.

How to customize your crochet St Patrick’s gnome?

There are so many ways to create your own unique crochet leprechaun. You can use different colors for your gnome, and change the beard’s or body’s color. You can use the patterns of the previous crochet gnomes and change the look of your gnome.

A few of the eager followers from our Facebook group have even made their st paddy’s gnome already using the pattern of January’s crochet gnome. Why not change the hat? Use one of the previous hat patterns and add some more crochet shamrock appliques to it.

Crochet St Patrick’s day gnome pattern details:

Materials:

  • worsted weight yarn- Bernat Premium 100% Acrylic, 7.0 oz/198 g, 360 yds/ 329 m solid colors-

  • Bernat Premium light green 50 gr, dark green 30 gr, black 15 gr, and a small amount of Beige for the nose and yellow for the belt’s buckle.

  • crochet hook size 4mm/ US crochet hook size G

  • poly fiber fill for stuffing

  • a piece of cardboard around 15cm square/6-inch square for the base

  • tapestry needle

Special notes:

  1. The pattern is written in US crochet terms.

  2. The pattern is worked in continuous rounds.

  3. If you are crocheting loosely, use a smaller hook so your work will be tighter and the stuffing won’t be visible.

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

  5. The leprechaun gnome’s hat is crocheted separately but this time I saw mine onto the body and filled with poly fiber fill.

  6. The hat’s belt is crocheted separately but you can check the girl leprechaun’s pattern and make her hat for the boy as well.

Final measurements of the gnome:

20cm / 7.5 inches in height with the hat’s tip bent.

The base of the st paddy’s gnome’s body is 10cm/ 4 inches

Measure the body’s base

Before we continue, we need to measure our base and cut the cardboard. My base is 10cm/ 4 inches wide. Place your crochet piece in the center of the cardboard and use a pen to draw a circle. Draw the circle around the crochet piece and then cut it. While cutting the cardboard, cut it a bit smaller, so it will not stick out.

St Patrick’s day gnome- how to join all the pieces together:

  1. First, take the nose and sew it on the center, one row below round 31. Take the beard and wrap it around the nose and sew.
  2. Second, take the gnome’s body and hat. In the gnome’s body, you will see that we worked round 31 in BLO creating a line.

  3. We will sew the hat on that line. Before you start sewing the hat you can use safety pins to pin it onto the gnome’s body.
  4. Now, take a tapestry needle and sew the hat. While sewing the hat fill it with poly fiber fill. Don’t overdo it.

how to sew a gnome's hat
  1. After you are done with the hat, take the belt and the belt clip. Sew the belt around the base of your hat. I saw mine only on the back just joining both sides. Later we will sew the belt clip onto the belt and it will keep it in place.

  2. Following we will sew the hands. Place them one row below the at on both sides of the body. Leave 6-7 stitches between the nose and hands.

  3. Finally, add a few crochet clovers onto the hat and you will have your St Patrick’s day gnome done.
