Item details


Make yourself an adorably chubby little Gnome - either a boy Gnome with a beard, or a girl Gnome with braids. At only 3.5" tall they'll fit comfortably in your hand, maybe they'll sit on your desk or bookcase, or maybe they'll be a roaming gnome and go with you on your travels.

***CHRISTMAS SPECIAL! This pattern now includes details of how to make a Chubby Santa or a Chubby Elf.***

This original pattern gives you all the information you need to make either boy or girl Gnome, a little Santa Claus or Christmas Elf and is suitable for beginner/intermediate crocheters. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi. They are written in English using US crochet terms, and the list of abbreviations includes the UK alternatives. The pattern is a downloadable PDF file and you will need Adobe Reader to open it. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have as you are making it.

To make a Chubby Gnome you will need:
Various colours of double knitting (dk) weight yarn*.
Approx 15g yarn for hat.
Approx 10g yarn for top.
Approx 10g yarn for trousers/skirt.
Approx 5g skin colour yarn
Approx 5g yarn for hair.
Small amount of yarn for belt.
Small amount of black yarn for mouth.
1 pair 9mm black safety eyes.
Tapestry needle.
3.5mm hook (US E hook).

To make a Chubby Santa or Elf you will need:
Materials and tools as above, also small amount of fuzzy white yarn (Santa) and a small bell (Elf).

*You can substitute worsted weight yarn, but the amounts needed may be slightly more.
