Free Gnome Patterns crochet pattern roundup

I just LOVE a cute gnome.

My garden has been full of gnomes – even before they were trendy. My grandkids love them.  In fact, we have one that lives under our bridge in the back yard and when they were little they had to ask permission to cross from our little gnome under the bridge.  Such a precious memory. ❤️

One of my favorite stories about Norwegian holiday gnomes comes from my favorite author, J.R.R. Tolkien in Letters From Father Christmas.* They are a collection of letters written and illustrated by J. R. R. Tolkien between 1920 and 1942 for his children, from Father Christmas. In his stories, Red Gnomes are presented as helpful creatures who come from Norway to the North Pole to assist Father Christmas and his Elves in fighting the wicked Goblins.

When I began designing crochet patterns I knew at some point crocheted gnomes would have to make an appearance.  My very first crochet gnome pattern was the Gnome Towel Topper which became a mini-sensation. He can now be found in homes all over the world.  

In this list of cute diy gnomes you will find gnomes for your Christmas decor and holiday decorations.  These would all be a great gift idea!

I have added to my free gnome pattern library every year with gnomes for year round fun!  I mean really, gnomes aren’t just for Christmas, right?

Free Gnome Crochet Patterns

Gnome Crochet Bottle Topper

Gnome Wine Bottle Cover

The Gnome Wine Bottle Topper Cover is a free crochet pattern for a fun way to present a gifted bottle of wine or champagne for a housewarming or hostess gift. Make in different colors for year round gnome gifting!  This little guy may end up being the talk of the party. 😉. Combines a simple crocheted triangle and nose with faux fur material for a quick make, too.  Complete video tutorial provided as well.

Gnome Tissue Box Cover Pattern

Gnome Tissue Box Cover

The adorable Gnome Tissue Box Cover is a cute addition to your home decor – perfect for Christmas or any time of the year!  Cover up that boring tissue box with this cute little guy for any gnome lover!  

Gnome Towel Topper

1. Gnome Towel Topper

This was the gnome pattern that started it all!  This gnome towel topper is so much fun and works up quickly.  With a hidden plastic ring inside (crocheted right into the hat!) that allows your towel to be removable for easy washing.  Make one for every season in different colors – I have seen fall gnomes, halloween gnomes and spring gnomes just by changing up colors and adding little embellishments.  Great for craft fairs, too!

Spring Girl Gnome Towel Topper

Spring Girl Gnome Towel Topper

And because my Gnome looked a little lonely (and grumpy!) I decided to make the matching Spring Girl Gnome Towel Topper with braids.  These turned out so cute and make a great matching pair for gifts!

Gnome Bed Pillow or Draft Dodger

The Gnome Couch Pillow or Door Draft Dodger is another adorable addition to your home decor.  Originally intended to go in front of my door to prevent drafts.  However, he is cute anywhere you decide to show him off!  I currently have him draped over a chair in my office but he looks amazing on a couch or bed, too.

Viking Gnome Towel Topper

I have been gradually adding to my Gnome Towel Topper series and the Viking Gnome Towel Topper is another fun addition!  Perfect for any Vikings fan or perhaps even as a fun addition to a man cave or BBQ grill.

Leprechaun Gnome Towel Topper

Leprechaun Gnome Towel Topper

The Leprechaun Gnome Towel Topper is definitely St. Patrick’s Day friendly but he could certainly be made in different colors for year round gnome fun!
