Gifting Gnome:Crochet Pattern! Gifting Gnome is Pleased to a Part of the Hidden Treasures Blog Hop!

Updated: Dec 9, 2022

Gifting Gnome is one of my favorite projects. Cute and functional; this little guy holds small

items the size of a single-shot bottle.

. .






If drinking is not your thing; other small items such as body spray, hand sanitizer, and lip products also fit great!

Super cute gift-holding gnomes also work up quickly, so if you have multiple small gifts to give this is the perfect project for you.

This Gifting Gnome is pleased to be a part of the Hidden Treasures Blog Hop hosted by Stardust Gold Crochet.

Finishing the face embellishments and securing the face and arms to body.

Hot glue google eyes to face and create eyebrows with a small scrap of the white (6” to 8”), place eyes and brows so your gnome has the expression you want it to have. With a long strand of the face color loop around two sts at Row 1 between eyes, secure strand and weave in ends (if unsure of how to do the nose you can watch the video in the notes sections)

Face embellishments

Sew beard to body. Row between face and beard sewn to

Rnd 13 of body, sew down sides of beard to point that will

be sewn to Rnd 5 of body.

If desired add pipe cleaners to body where arms will go to add bend to the arms. You can secure the pipe cleaners by wrapping them around one st that will be covered by the arm hole. It can be helpful to secure the pipe cleaner by twisting it around itself with the jewelry pliers.

Sew arms to side 1 or 2 sts out from the beard on each side

Between Rnds 10 & 11.

Add what you want inside your Gnome, an place the hat.

Yay! You have made a Gifting Gnome, the last thing to do is to gift your gnome!
