FREE Crochet Halloween Gnome Pattern

If you’re looking for enjoyable Halloween decor crochet design, this Crochet amigurumi Halloween gnome pattern is the answer. You can place it on bookshelves, window sills and other spaces you need a Halloween theme.

You can use different types of yarn but I recommend a DK or Sport weight. Make sure to use a crochet hook that’s one or two sizes smaller, it makes the fabric a little tighter, so it will hold the stuffing without showing holes.

Here is what you will need:

  • Yarn in orange, brown, green, yellow, white and red color.
  • Size 2.5 mm crochet hook
  • Poly-Fil Fiberfill stuffing
  • Needle, tapestry needle, stitch marker, pins and scissors
  • Optional: small button for decoration
  • Optional: brown eye shadow

What did I use?

Schachenmayr Catania, sport weight yarn, 100% Cotton, 1.76 ounces = 137 yards/50 grams = 125 meters

Colors: 00281 (orange for body), 00403 (light yellow for hat), 00130 (white for beard), 00263 (skin for arms and nose), 00161 (brown for hat), 00252 (red for flower), 00205 (green for leaves)
