Wizard and Gnomes

crochet gandalf and gnomes

Yay! Patterns and videos all done,
These patterns were released at the same time. I started designing the Gnomes first, once I put the hat on one I saw a Wizard in my mind's eye so I just had to design one of those too. Both are free! I hope you enjoy.

Crochet A Gnome


The Gnomes,
About 7 inches tall to the tip of  their hats. The head, body, and legs are all worked in one piece. This pattern does have some smaller parts but I do have a video tutorial to help walk you through anything you might need help with.

When I'm not crocheting, I'm building Tree Dollhouses,
Gnomes  tie in with a theme I've been building with on my other facebook page for dollhouses called, Dollhouses and The Things That Go In Them.  My other youtube channel, Where The Gnomes Live. Check them out if you like gnomes, mice and all things miniature.

 


 

I hope you enjoy!
Scroll down this page for the written pattern, the print friendly button is at the bottom of this page along with the option to donate. Donating is not required but very much
appreciated. Designing amigurumi patterns is an expensive and lengthy process, especially patterns that include video tutorials like this one.  Donations help to keep the patterns free for all to enjoy. If you can not donate but would like to help, consider

Meet the Grey Wizard,
If you use the same yarn and hook size given in the supplies list you should get a doll about 7 inches tall.
This pattern also includes 11 videos that follow the written pattern. Links below.


I hope you enjoy!

The Wizard's Staff


This is the staff I made for my wizard. The wizard is a free crochet pattern here. There is a full video tutorial included in that awesome price of free.

Why not crochet the staff?
I decided to not crochet the staff for 2 reasons:
1) It would be tedious for many to work in such small rounds.
2) This was a good excuse to promote my other youtube channel.

My other youtube channel,

I've been building a stump dollhouse for many years using basic household items. I came up with a process to make fake bark using foil, tape and paper towels back in 2013. I actually used to upload those videos to my crochet channel until I decided to give my dollhouse videos their own channel. I call that channel,  "Where The Gnomes Live"

I'm building a forest in my craft room,
I've been building a very large Gnome home since 2014 called, Aunt Katri's Bed & Breakfast.
This year I've built a new tree that is 4 foot 7 with 31 rooms. I will be creating a new mouse family to live in it. One half of my craft room is all trees!


I regularly write stories to go along with these adventures on my other fb page, Dollhouses and The Things That Go In Them. I hope you stop by sometime and check it out.


Now let's make that Wizard's Staff shall we..



You will need:
tinfoil
masking tape
tissue paper or paper towel
tacky glue
black paint
brown paint
beige or tan paint
1 bead, any color



  Donations of any size are greatly appreciated and help keep the patterns free. If you do give a donation, please accept this note as my sincere thanks and know that you have helped a great deal.
Many Blessings to you!

My son comes into my craft room while I was filming the tutorial. He grabs Gandalf, places his little yarny hands on the edge of my table, drops him down so that just his face is looking at me, and says "Fly, you fools!"
The way he did it, I just about died laughing..

Moose on the Loose Free Pattern


A gift and a mascot!
A gift I made for my Dad and released the pattern for it in 2015. This moose became a little bit famous when the Crochet Crowd made him their mascot for an Alaskan cruise. Oh my goodness, what a thrill for me that was! Thanks Mikey!

Free pattern,

Crochet Happy Elephants

blue and pink elephant crochet pattern

Little Bigfoot Elephants
Look at those happy faces! The Little Bigfoot Elephant dates back to 2014. It's been a while since I shared them. They are about 8 inches tall from foot to top of head. That pattern also has a video tutorial.
Get the pattern here

You can make amigurumi bigger very easily, did you know that? You can use a bulkier yarn and bigger hook or hold 2 strands together. You can see more examples of using the same pattern to make an amigurumi bigger here

Little Bitty Elephants
Here's a super tiny Elephant, standing just 5 inches tall. I published this one in 2017. I called them Little Bitty Elephants. I did give them their own names though, top one is Peanut and the little boy in red is Elwood.
