Amigurumi – Crochet Christmas Gnome “Samtan Salaputius”

With this crochet pattern, you can create “Samtan,” the Amigurumi Crochet Christmas Gnome. Samtan is an adorable bearded fellow who prefers to wear his hat on his bulbous nose. What could be under his hat? The crocheted Christmas gnome is a fantastic decoration but also a cute stuffed toy for children.

Introduction: Amigurumi – Crochet Christmas Gnome “Samtan Salaputius”

Before we can start crocheting the Amigurumi Christmas Gnome, a little preparation is needed. In the following sections, you will find information about the required prerequisites, materials, and size. If you need assistance, there are additional links available.

Attention! Amigurumis are very cute and, therefore, not only popular among adults. Children often see them as toys, so you should be especially careful. Amigurumis that are not intended for play should be kept out of the reach of children. If an Amigurumi is meant to be played with by children, you should strictly adhere to the guidelines for toys. If you plan to give away or sell Amigurumis (license for sellers), you must strictly adhere to the legal requirements for toys and display the required CE marking.

Prerequisites

You should already be familiar with the following techniques to follow this crochet pattern for an Amigurumi Christmas Gnome without any issues. If you’re not acquainted with all of them, detailed tutorials are provided here to help you learn.

  • Crochet Magic Ring
  • Crochet Slip Stitches
  • Decreases
  • Increases
  • Loops of a Stitch
  • Single Crochet Stitches (US!)
  • spiral rounds

Note! By offsetting regular increases and decreases, they become almost invisible. You can recognize regular increases by the phrase “double every … stitch,” and regular decreases by the phrase “crochet together every … and … stitch”. The stitch chart for spheres and circles might also be helpful for you.

Note! Using a special technique for invisible decreases makes them nearly invisible. Although this technique requires a bit of practice, it’s worth giving it a try.

Supplies

The depicted Amigurumi Christmas Gnome was made using the following materials. The Amigurumi Christmas Gnome can also be crocheted with a different yarn, provided you use an appropriate hook size. To achieve an identical result, it’s advisable to use the same materials as much as possible. The list includes all the necessary tools and supplies.

Bell – gold – 15mm

I have used one bell in the shade Gold with a diameter of 3/5 inch here. If you don’t have any bells in stock, I’ve selected some for you.

Crochet Hook

You will need a crochet hook with a size of B or C (alphabetic) or 1 1/2 (numeric). For converting to other sizes, the crochet hook size converter will help you. I have selected some great crochet hooks for you here.

Darning Yarn

I have used darning yarn in the shade of black here. If you cannot find a suitable darning yarn in your supplies, I have already selected some for you.

Filling

For filling, I used plastic granules with a diameter of about 1/6 inches. However, there are numerous alternatives for filling material. If you’ve run out of filling, I’ve prepared a refill for you here.

Filling

For filling, I used synthetic filling made of 100% polyester. However, there are numerous alternatives for filling material. If you’ve run out of filling, I’ve prepared a refill for you here.

Pins

You’ll also need a few pins. The more colorful your collection, the better. If you need more, I’ve found something for you.

Scissors

You’ll need any scissors. It’s best to use your most beautiful scissors because it brings you joy. If you don’t have really nice scissors, I’ve picked out some lovely ones for you.

Wool Needle

You’ll need a wool needle with a blunt tip. The thickness of the wool needle should match the thickness of your yarn. You might like the set of wool needles I’ve picked out for you.

Yarn

I used yarn in the shade Gold. The material is 80% viscose and 20% polyester. The yardage is 110 yds / 0.9 oz. If you want to replenish your supply, I’ve already picked out the matching yarn for you here.

Yarn – Schachenmayr – Catania – 263 – softaprikot (hautfarbe)

I used yarn in the shade Soft Apricot. The material is 100% cotton. The yardage is 137 yds / 1.75 oz. If you want to replenish your supply, I’ve already picked out the matching yarn for you here.

Yarn – Schachenmayr – Catania – grey brown – 254

Colour: grey brown Size: 137yds / 1.75oz Material: 100% cotton Help? View example

Yarn – Schachenmayr – Catania – white – 106

I used yarn in the shade White. The material is 100% cotton. The yardage is 137 yds / 1.75 oz. If you want to replenish your supply, I’ve already picked out the matching yarn for you here.

Yarn – Schachenmayr – Catania – red – 115

I used yarn in the shade Red. The material is 100% cotton. The yardage is 137 yds / 1.75 oz. If you want to replenish your supply, I’ve already picked out the matching yarn for you here.

Note! In this pattern, a shade referred to as “skin colour” is used. I chose the shade based on my personal preference. However: The world is diverse! There are many other possible skin colours you can use. Feel free to adjust the yarn selection to your personal taste!

Note! The specified yarn was used for the example shown here. In principle, you can use any yarn and an appropriate needle size. However, the quality of the material also affects the quality of the result, so you should avoid cutting corners in the wrong place. Also, the thickness of the yarn and the needle will influence the size of the outcome, which you can, of course, intentionally take advantage of.

Size

Here are the size details for the Christmas Gnome. The height was measured standing without the hat. Please note that the actual size depends on the yarn used, the size of the crochet hook, and individual crochet tension.

Needle SizeYardageSize
Crochet Hook B, C or 1 1/2137 yds / 1.75 oz5 3/5 inch
Crochet Hook C, D or 2 1/2120 yds / 1.75 oz?
Crochet Hook E or 493 yds / 1.75 oz?

Note! If you want to change the size, you can simply use a thicker or thinner yarn with a suitable needle size. Simply doubling the rounds, rows, and stitches, on the other hand, will only result in an uneven outcome.

Crochet Pattern: Amigurumi – Crochet Christmas Gnome “Samtan Salaputius”

Amigurumi - Crochet Christmas Gnome - crochet pattern - pattern

To create the Amigurumi Crochet Christmas Gnome, start with the body and head in one piece, followed by a bulbous nose, long arms, small feet, and finally, the long pointy hat. Then, all parts are sewn together, and the beard, hair, eyes, and zigzag line are added, along with attaching a bell.

Crochet Body (1x)

Amigurumi - Crochet Christmas Gnome - pattern

Crochet the body for the Crochet Christmas Gnome from bottom to top in spiral rounds using only single crochet stitches (US!). Once the body is complete, continue crocheting the head.

Note! Your Amigurumi may have difficulty sitting independently if it is filled entirely with a uniformly light stuffing. To improve this, you can incorporate an appropriate center of gravity. Simply fill the bottom of the body with some plastic granules to add a little weight to the body. This way, your Amigurumi can sit much more easily on its own.

Note! If you want to achieve a particularly beautiful result, you can hide regular increases and decreases by offsetting them a little. You can recognize regular increases by the phrase “double every … stitch,” and regular decreases by the phrase “crochet together every … and … stitch”. The stitch chart for spheres and circles might also be helpful for you. Additionally, you can apply a special crochet technique here for invisible decreases.

Finish Christmas Gnome

Amigurumi - Crochet Christmas Gnome - gratis crochet pattern

Next, you can assemble all the parts with pins to see how they fit. Don’t start sewing until everything is in place, and you are satisfied with the result.

Sew Nose onto Head

Amigurumi - Crochet Christmas Gnome - Amigurumi crochet pattern

Start with the nose, as it will be our reference point for the center. It sits in the middle of the face and is sewn all around between the second and fourth rounds above the collar. You can use the thread end for this, but make sure the round transition from the collar on the body is on the back. Finally, secure and stitch the thread end inside the body.

Sew Arms to Body

Amigurumi - Crochet Christmas Gnome - freee Amigurumi pattern

The arms are sewn flat folded one round below the collar, with the round transition on the inside. First, mark the two middle stitches of the round below the nose. Then, sew the arms with the thread ends about 16 stitches apart. These threads are also secured and stitched inside.

Sew Legs to Body

Amigurumi - Crochet Christmas Gnome - gratis Amigurumi pattern

Next, also mark a middle stitch at the bottom of the body to find the center between the legs. Then, lay your gnome on its back and sew the legs around the 6th round, flat folded with the opening, leaving about 3 stitches apart between them.

Your gnome is already sewn together.

Attach Beard

Amigurumi - Crochet Christmas Gnome - pattern - crochet pattern

Now you can attach the beard, possibly using the pattern for attaching hair. Use threads that are 1 1/2 times as long as the blue body. Start in the round directly above the collar and work around all stitches from arm to arm. Work the two rounds above it similarly, excluding the nose. Now, you can attach the sideburns on the outsides over 4 stitches in the next round and 3 stitches in the following round. Trim the beard carefully with scissors, first to the appropriate length if necessary. Then, taper it gently from the sides to the middle until the shape is right.

Attach Hair

Afterward, you can still knot the main hair. Use threads that are just long enough to knot. The main hair starts in the top row of the sideburns and extends up to the last round. Be sure to work from the outer sides to the center at the back of the head because there is a small step in the middle of the back of the head, as the spiral rounds do not meet exactly. Initially, leave out the forehead completely, and then add as much hair as needed until you have a pretty, semi-round high forehead. Now, you can shape the main hair by fanning it between two fingers and cutting it. All main hairs are cut to the same length, resulting in a tousled hairstyle.

Embroider Eyes

Now it’s time to embroider the eyes with black yarn above the nose. It’s important that the eyes are above the nose so they are not visible with the hat on. Simply stitch vertically around two stitches until the eye is the right size, and finally, secure the thread ends inside.

Embroider zigzag line

Amigurumi - Crochet Christmas Gnome - freee Amigurumi crochet pattern

Use gold crochet yarn to embroider a zigzag line on the red stripe of the body. Start on the front to work a central zigzag pointing to the nose and secure the thread ends inside the body at the end.

Attach the bell
