It’s the year of the gnomes! This post will be a landing page for the monthly gnomes with links that take you to each individual tutorial. I will continue to update this post until the end of the year. It’s one spot for you to be able to easily find all the gnomes! Not sure what this gnome project is all about? Let me explain! Jennifer from Day by Day Clay and Crochet and I have teamed up for a HUGE year-long project! Each month Jen creates a Gnome Polymer Clay Crochet Hook and I create a matching Gnome Corner-to-Corner Crochet panel. We are focusing on holiday and seasonal gnome designs. The pixel graph and how-to for the crochet portion of the collab will be right here on Repeat Crafter Me and you can purchase the coordinating clay hook from Jen on her Facebook page “Day by Day Clay and Crochet Group!
The 12 months of Gnomes will be stitched together at the end of the year to make a big blanket!
I am using yarns from the Red Heart brand (Mostly Red Heart Super Saver) and you can find the materials and color lists in each individual gnome pattern post (links below)
Shop all colors on Yarnspirations.com

If you are new to the Corner-to-Corner Crochet technique, let me explain a little bit about it as well. C2C lets you turn almost any image into a pixel graph and then from a pixel graph into a crocheted piece! The Corner-to-Corner technique basically means the you start in one corner (the lower right hand is most common place to start) and crochet diagonally in rows until you get to the other corner. You follow the pixel graph to create the color changes that make up the picture of the gnome. One pixel square = a chain 2 + 3 HDC stitches. Please note that I am using HDC stitches for the C2C instead of DC.
Below is a Corner-to-Corner Video Tutorial using a part of my May Gnome graph.
Jennifer Freeman of “My Beautiful Disasters” (Find her HERE on FB!) has been writing out the C2C written pattern for each month. You can find links to her written patterns within each individual gnome post (links below)
Diane of Stitch Therapy is making the gnomes using the POPCORN STITCH! I love the way her gnomes are turning out and you can also find her Popcorn Stitch written patterns within each individual gnome post (links below)
Still not comfortable with the idea of Corner-to-Corner Crochet? Don’t worry, you can use single crochet stitches and crochet each gnome as a graphgan.
SpurView Goods has been uploading the SC written patterns HERE
In addition, I’ve seen so many other creative ways to use these gnome pixel graphs. I’ve seen cross stitch versions of the gnomes, perler bead versions, plastic canvas, knitted, and more! Be sure to search the hashtag #2022gnomeproject on social media so you can see them all!
We are halfway there! 6 more gnomes to go! Be sure to click on each gnome post to get multiple designs for each month. We are providing both boy and girl options as well as alternate designs for many of them. Happy Crocheting!
