If you haven’t read about the crochet gnome-along, you can find all the information regarding the yarn and release dates of each gnome here.

Haven’t you made a crochet gnome or amigurumi crochet pattern before?

Don’t be afraid to try new things! Crochet gnomes are easy to make and perfect for a complete beginner or advanced beginner crocheter! They have easy shapes and fewer parts, making them the perfect project to start your amigurumi journey with.

Although, it will be better if you check the first Valentine’s crochet gnome patterns or the winter gnome pattern. Both of these gnomes’ patterns were designed specifically for beginners. Particularly, all you need to know is how to crochet a single crochet stitch, and you will be able to make yourself some cute crochet gnomes.

Yarn + Substitutions

The yarn I used for the crochet Valentine’s gnome pattern is Bernat Premium yarn by Yarnspiration. It is a worsted-weight acrylic yarn, has a variety of colors, and is easy to work with.

I chose worsted weight yarn for my gnomes because I know plenty of patterns use thinner yarn, and it is hard for a beginner crocheter to change a pattern and accommodate it for thicker yarn.

Also, one of the most important parts of crocheting amigurumi toys is to have neat stitches without a gap between them. Therefore, using worsted weight yarn with a smaller crochet hook, like 4mm instead of 5mm, will give you the desired result without hurting your hands!

Customizing your crochet gnome patterns

Do you know that you can create your very own crochet gnome? How?

All you need to do is play around with some colors and mix and match the gnomes’ patterns.

For example, you can change the colors of the boy’s gnome beard or the color of the girl’s gnome braids. You can make the body’s heart pink and the hands in pink and white color.

Additionally, you can change the size of your crochet gnomes by using thinner yarn such as DK weight yarn or sport weight yarn. If you need some inspiration, you must definitely join our Passionatecrafte’s Facebook group, where you will find many creative alternates made by fellow crocheters.

Is there a printable PDF for Valentine’s crochet gnomes pattern?

Yes, there is! However, it is a paid, ad-free, beautifully formatted printable PDF pattern!

What is the difference between this pattern and the first set of Valentine’s crochet gnome patterns?

As we said above, the first set is more beginner oriented and uses only basic stitches such as single crochet, double crochet, etc. But in this pattern, we will change colors and carry on the yarn while making the gnome’s body with hearts.

So if you think it will be hard for you, check out the first set of Valentine’s gnomes!

Crochet heart gnome pattern

Crochet Valentine’s gnome free crochet pattern:

Materials:

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

  • Bernat Premium sky grey 50 gr, Red 20gr, Pink 50 gr, White 15gr, and a small amount of Beige for the nose

  • 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 joined rounds instead of continues because we have colorwork. If you work in continuous rounds your hearts will not align.

  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. I made the hat separate, but feel free to sew it onto the body. You can fill it with stuffing before sewing.

  6. I used big and small crochet heart appliques; add as much as you like.

  7. In the middle of the body, we will use tapestry crochet to make the part with hearts. You will need to change colors and carry on the yarn as you go. If you haven’t made it before, check the free beginner guide here.

Final measurements of the gnome:

24cm / 9.5 inches in height with the hat’s tip bent.

The base of the winter gnome body is 10cm/ 4 inches

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.

Crochet hearts stitch chart:

In the chart, each square is equal to 1 single crochet stitch. We start from row 1. which for us is round 13. I couldn’t make a chart in rounds, so don’t get confused by the numbers on the left side. The rounds start from the right side always.

How to make the braids of the girl’s gnome

First, take an A4 size notebook or cardboard and wrap your yarn around the shorter side about 20-30 times. After that, cut it from one side, and now you will have a long piece of yarn. Fold it from the middle. Once your hair pieces are cut, it is time to put them onto the gnome’s body.

Now take your hook and insert it 3-4 stitches on the left or right side of the gnome’s nose. Attach the folded piece of yarn and pull it through the loop. Take the yarn off the hook and insert the opposite side through the loop we created with the yarn as we make a tie note. SEE the pictures below.

I wanted to make more thick braids for my gnome, so I made two rows of hair and then just braided it a bit more loosely.

How to make the crochet gnome’s beard

This time for my crochet gnome’s beard, I used the same technique we did for the Crochet girl gnome’s braids.

First, take an A4 notebook and wrap white yarn around the short side. Second, make 15-20 wraps for more bulky beard. Third, cut the wraps from one side and fold them. After that, insert your hook in one stitch around the nose. Pull the yarn through the stitch and then take it off the hook. Take the opposite side of the yarn and insert it through the loop like a knot. Repeat that around the nose and cut it with scissors to form it. See pics above for the braids.

  1. I’m having trouble with the hand You have 12 stitches and do the bobble (4dc) in the stitch but still have 12 stitches in the next round How do you go around the thumb?

    1. You have 11 single crochet and 1 bobble stitch, in the next round, you should make a single crochet into the single crochet stitch and 1 single crochet on top of the bobble stitch.

    2. If you chain 1 after your four double crochets, it will result in having one stitch instead of four in that part of the next round. I think that step was missed in the instructions because I made the same mistake at first

  2. Where do I send finished photos of my February Gnomes. I posted my January but for the life of me, I can’t remember how to do it! Please let me know. Thanks, Brenda
