Crochet spring garden gnomes collection:

With the end of March and all the festive holiday crochet gnome patterns, it is time to make something that we can enjoy all through the year and not only on specific occasions. Therefore, I made the Spring flower collection.

The first crochet flower gnome is the Daisy gnome! The second one is the Sunflower gnome which you can later use as an autumn home decoration.

Have you seen the previous crochet gnome patterns? If not, you can find them here!

The spring crochet gnomes are a bit smaller than the previous ones. After seeing all your lovely creations with different yarns in our Facebook group I decided to experiment as well.

How to customize your Sunflower gnome?

Actually, I did that for you. Below you will find two different versions of the crochet Sunflower gnomes. One of them is made with layers of petals and one of them is made with only a crochet sunflower applique as we did for the crochet Daisy spring gnome.

So if you are a beginner you must definitely try the Daisy and the simple Sunflower gnome pattern first.

Pattern notes:

  1. The pattern is written in US crochet terms.

  2. The pattern is worked in one piece. We start from the base and work it up to the hat.

  3. The pattern is worked in continuous rounds. Do not join your rounds.

  4. If you use a different weight of yarn, keep in mind that your gnome will turn out bigger or smaller.

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

  6. When stuffing the body- stuff it well, so it will stay in shape, but don’t overdo it. You can still insert cardboard in the base to make it flat but it will stay still without it as well.

  7. If you are making amigurumi for the first time or you are a beginner you can check our free guide with 5 tips and tricks that will help you out a lot.- 5 tips you must know for amigurumi.

  8. If you will crochet the simple version without the layers of petals crochet rounds 29 and 31 in regular single crochet stitch, not in BLO.

Crochet sunflower applique pattern:

For the crochet Sunflower gnome pattern, we used the sunflower applique which you can find here or click on the picture below.

How to sew your crochet gnome together?

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

Second, place and sew the nose on top of the beard. Place it in the upper center.

Third, Sew the hands on both sides. Leave 4 stitches between the beard and the hands.

Lastly, take the stem and sew it on top of the head. It is up to you if you will add an applique onto the stem or not.

You can make your sunflower gnome in two different ways. It is up to you. You can make the hat with layers of petals and the stem or without it. See the pictures above.

  1. Rnd 2: SS in first, *skip 2, 3 DC, 1 picot, 3 DC in next, skip 2, SS in next* 8 times, SS in last 3 . (8 petals)

    Can you please tell me what picot means. Its on the petals layer. Is it a mistake in the spelling. Thank you

    1. Hello, Shirley
      picot means – Chain 2 or 3 and make slip stitch in 2nd or 3rd from your hook- it will form a mini peak.

  2. Totally love the gnomes!!! I’ve been participating since January. I’m doing my 2nd sunflower gnome now and the stem didn’t seem right to me. I bought the pattern bundle last month and that’s what I’ve been using. I was without Internet when I did my first one, but as I was doing the 2nd one I checked here on the blog and found that the Etsy bundle pattern is missing 3 rows for the stem (Rows 18-20). I’m going to finish up my 2nd one and then go back and add on to my first. My daughter & husband decided we needed a sunflower couple 😉

  3. Hello! Would you mind if I share your blog with
    my myspace group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really
    enjoy your content. Please let me know. Cheers

  4. Experienced crocheter here, loving the various patterns/designs! Got the sunflower gnome to make for a dear friend, couldn’t find instructions for the arms last night. Checking here, I see them tucked in midway through as “Daisy gnome’s hands.” Suggestion: you bolded and underlined the other parts but not the beard, nose, and hands. It would help to find these pieces if their instruction headings were also bolded. Thanks for the patterns!
