Candle Gnome - Decoration - Crochet Pattern
Gnomes and candlelight – that’s gonna make for a cozy home, especially in the darker part of the year. But in summer, too, these little Gnomes will be very pleased if you allow them to make your home even prettier.
The colors are up to you. Whether in classic christmas green and red tones, or neutral in grays – just let your imagination flow.
With this pattern you can make Gnomes in four different sizes. With beard. With braids. Without legs. With legs... Pick what you like. :)
All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for (practiced) beginners as well. This pattern contains 23 pages of crochet instructions and 21 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions.
Used techniques (US crochet terms): magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, increases and (invisible) decreases, crocheting in front loops and back loops – explained, changing yarn-color. The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals.
With 3.0 mm hook and DK yarn or two strands of sport weight yarn the Gnomes get to be 33, 34, 35 & 36 cm tall (without legs).
You need it smaller or bigger? No problem! Simply use lighter or heavier yarn. Standard-sized LED tealights won’t fit then anymore though.

I'm Stephanie, mother of three and I live with my family in Germany.
I've been crocheting for a while now. My kids got me to it. When there's no merchandising on the market for the current favorit comic figure you just have to make it yourself. That's how my first crocheted figure came to life. And with that my crochet addiction. :)
My patterns are for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. Stuffed with photos and detailed step-by-step instructions (I think you could call them photo-tutorials). I learned crocheting by myself and often found it quite frustrating to get stuck in the middle of a pattern just because some key-information was simply missing (as a beginner pretty much everything is key-information). That's why in my patterns almost everything is explained with words and photos.
I'm currently converting my older patterns into a new layout. Here on Makerist you can find all the patterns that already have the new layout plus all my new creations.
Have fun browsing through my patterns and happy crocheting!
- Steph :)
