Gnome - Egg Cozy - Crochet Pattern


Get these cute gnomes for your breakfast table!

They keep your boiled eggs warm and cozy until you are ready to eat them. The gnome‘s hat can easily be removed so that you can quickly take out your boiled egg at any time.

When the gnomes aren‘t busy in protecting your boiled eggs there‘s still no need to put them away since they make some very cute decoration on the table. :)

You could also make a whole bunch of them and use them as advent calendar for big chocolate eggs.

No sewing! No parts need to be sewn on top of each other or on to each other.

All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for beginners as well. This pattern contains 10 pages of crochet instructions and 15 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions.

Used techniques (US crochet terms): magic ring, slip stitch, single crochet, increases and (invisible) decreases, crocheting in front loops and back loops – explained, changeing yarn-color - explained. The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals.

With DK yarn and a 3.0 mm hook the Gnome gets to be 18 cm tall and 11 cm wide.

You need it smaller or bigger? No problem! Simply use lighter or heavier yarn. Standard-sized eggs won‘t fit then anymore though.

MATERIAL Amount of DK yarn: - 2 g for the nose - 45 g for the hat without stripes - 29 g for the hat with stripes (hat-color) - 13 g for the hat with stripes (stripe-color) - 36 g for the body - 5 g for the boots - optional: some yarn for the beard - optional: some yarn for embroidery

FORMAT -pattern in PDF format (with watermarks) - to open and read the file you need a specific program, e.g. Adobe‘s free Acrobat-Reader (www. adobe .com)

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 :)
