Introduction: Amigurumi – Crochet Mini Christmas Gnome “Samtan Salaputius”

Before crocheting the Mini Christmas Gnome, some preparation is necessary. Therefore, you will find the necessary information about prerequisites, materials, and size here. Additional help can be found through the corresponding additional links.

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

To effortlessly follow this crochet pattern for a Mini Christmas Gnome, you should already be familiar with the following crochet techniques. You will find a detailed tutorial for each technique here so that you can quickly learn them yourself.

  • 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

To crochet the depicted Mini Christmas Gnome, the following materials were used. If you want to crochet the Mini Christmas Gnome with a different yarn, you must use a corresponding needle size. For an authentic result, it is recommended to use materials as similar as possible. The following list includes, in addition to the materials, all the tools and supplies used.

Bell – gold – 1/3 inch

I used a bell in the shade gold with a diameter of 1/3 inch here. If you don’t have bells in stock, I have selected some replacements 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 specifications for the Mini 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 oz2 2/5 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 Mini Christmas Gnome “Samtan Salaputius”

For the Amigurumi Crochet Mini Christmas Gnome, we first crochet the body and head in one piece, and then a chubby nose, long arms, small feet, and finally the long pointed hat. After that, all parts are sewn together, the beard and hair are attached, and eyes and the zigzag line are embroidered, and a bell is sewn on.

Crochet Body (1x)

The body for the Crochet Christmas Gnome is crocheted from the bottom up in spiral rounds using only single crochet stitches (US!). Once you finish the body, proceed to crochet the head immediately.

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

Next, you can assemble all the parts with pins to see how they should fit. Start sewing only when everything is in the right place and you are satisfied with the result.

Sew Nose onto Head

We 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 around the second round above the collar. You can use the yarn end for this, but make sure that the round transition from the collar on the body is on the back. Finally, secure and weave the yarn end inside the body.

Sew Arms to Body

Fold the arms flat around the 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 yarn ends about 10 stitches apart from each other. Secure these threads inside the body at the end.

Sew Legs to Body

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 flat around the 4th round with the opening, leaving about 3 stitches between them.

Your gnome is already sewn together.

Attach Beard

Now you can start knotting the beard, and you may find the pattern for attaching hair helpful. Use threads that are 1 1/2 times the length of the body. Start in the round directly above the collar and work around all stitches from arm to arm. Work the round above it the same way. Now, knot the sideburns on the outsides over 2 stitches in the next round. Finally, shape the beard with scissors, first trimming it to the appropriate length if necessary. Gradually taper it from the sides to the center 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 embroidery yarn just above the nose. It’s important that the eyes sit above the nose so that they are not visible with the hat on. Stitch vertically around two stitches until the eye is the right size and finally secure the thread ends inside.

Embroider Zigzag Line

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

Sew on Bell

Subsequently, sew the golden bell to the top of the pointed hat with red crochet yarn.

Done!

Now you can put the hat on your gnome and enjoy his amusing look. He will surely bring a smile to everyone’s face when they take off his hat.
