Gnome - Doorstop, Decoration - Crochet Pattern
An awesome eyecatcher – no matter if in classical green or red, or colorful pink, blue or yellow. I‘m sure an all-colors scrap-yarn creation will look just as great...
The hat‘s knot is practical especially for the big doorstop version. It‘s very easy to grab and replace the gnome. The smaller Sport weight yarn variant just looks cute with it.
No sewing! The gnome is done as one piece. No parts need to be sewn on top of each other or on to each other in the end.
All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for beginners as well. This pattern contains 18 pages of crochet instructions and 19 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, changeing yarn-color. The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals.
With DK yarn and a 3.0 mm hook the Gnome gets to be 24 cm wide and 35 cm tall. With Sport weight yarn and a 2.0 mm hook it gets to be 16 cm wide and 26 cm tall.
You need it smaller or bigger? No problem! Simply use lighter or heavier yarn.
MATERIAL Amount of DK (Sport weight) yarn: 14 g (8 g) for the boots 8 g (4 g) for the nose 133 g (65 g) for the body 39 g (18 g) for the beard 92 g (47 g) for hands and hat 42 g (17 g) for the hat‘s stripes
additional material: - soft filling - heavy filling (e.g. pea gravel, marbles, sand...) - a freezer bag for the heavy filling - some tape to close the freezer bag

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 :)
