Flower Gnome - Egg Cozy, Decoration - Crochet Pattern
EGG COZY – FLOWER GNOME
Gnomes just in the winter or around Christmas? Of course not! The flower gnomes love the spring and the summer. Used as decoration they bring colors into your home, as egg cozies they keep your boiled eggs warm and cozy. You can decorate them with crocheted leaves and flowers or use other items instead (flower-buttons, fake flowers etc.).
Great for using up some scrap yarn as well.
All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for (practiced) beginners as well. This pattern contains 11 pages of crochet instructions and 12 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions.
Used techniques (US crochet terms): magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, increases and (invisible) decreases, crocheting in front loops and back loops – explained. The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals as well as back and forth in rows.
With 3.0 mm hook and DK yarn or two strands of sport weight yarn the gnomes get to be 12 x 18 cm tall.
You need it smaller or bigger? No problem! Simply use lighter or heavier yarn. Standard sized eggs won‘t fit then anymore though.
MATERIAL crochet hook (3.0 mm for DK yarn) tapestry needle stitch-marker scissors stuffing some colored pins
DK yarn: 38 g for body & arms 60 g for the hat 5 g for nose & hands 4 g for the shoes scraps in green for the leaves scraps in various colors for the flowers (ca. 1 g for the petals)

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 :)
