If you can knit there is a great gnome pattern from Alan Dart. This pattern was in the Simply Knitting Magazine and may be one of their free patterns, however Alan Dart does have his own site with various patterns available. Hope this helps.

There's a really simple crocheted gnome pattern on the Lion Brand website for free.

I told you: I only wrote that poem to test my printer!

i would suggest finding a tute for a simple boy doll and then altering it-all you really need is a red jacket, black pants, you can sew a cone and use it as a hat. then get some wool roving and use it for facial hair. i hope that helps

I have also been looking for a pattern for over a year.  I did buy the Alan Dart pattern (knitted) from his web site, which I'm working on now but I don't care for how long it takes me to knit.  If you could find a santa pattern you might be able to alter that to be a gnome. I have also seen that people have used the poppet pattern for a gnome.  Good luck and if you find something please share, It would make my day.

I've seen some cute gnomes done in a cone shape.  THen they applique to add the details like a hat and a beard and a shirt.  Let me see if I can find a picture.

I am a gnome freak - a coworker made me the gnome from above (bought it from Little Deers shop...link in the previous reply) just hand sewed with felt...I adore it to pieces...it is small  - but you could probably enlarge the pattern to make it bigger

You could also do a basic unisex plush doll - add pants and tunic with a belt - white beard and hair and pointed little cap...

Also Micheal Miller has a new line of fabric out that is Gnome fabric and they have a panel so you could cut the gnome out and sew two back to back and fill with stuffing and you and a plush gnome  - a little pillow like but...I am planning on doing this to feed my gnome habit
