Celebration Gnome

This new gnome square is celebrating. Choose interlocking crochet or overlay mosaic crochet and then also choose what style of flag to show.

NOT part of the Year of Gnomes series

This Celebration Gnome square is the same size as the gnome squares that were created as part of the “Year of Gnomes” series. But this new gnome square has NOT been added to that eBook.

Interlocking & Mosaic

As always, you’ll receive the fully written pattern and charts for both interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet. In this case you’ll receive one file for each technique which contains the pattern for each flag option.



These gnome squares are included in my large squares category. They are about 20″ / 52cm.

A new gnome square!

Just in time to celebrate! Are you surprised to see a gnome? We are doing a series of cat squares this year. Last year we did a new gnome square each month.

Celebration Gnome is NOT included in the Year of Gnomes series. But this gnome can be used in place of another gnome in the Year of Gnomes series, or you can make a wall hanging or a pillow or something fun.

This new square has been waiting for about a year for me to get around to it. An American friend asked me to make this and she must have the most patience I’ve ever heard of to wait this long.

Adjusted Mosaic Crochet

If you want to use the mosaic technique you will notice that the mosaic options have all been adjusted to remove the interlocking mesh dots and extra border lines.

I will soon have an update for each square in the Year of Gnomes eBook so that the adjusted mosaic squares will match this gnome (no mesh dots or extra border lines).

The Year of Gnomes originally had an overlay mosaic crochet option that used the same chart as the interlocking crochet option. This Celebration Gnome does not

There is only an interlocking crochet option and a solid, adjusted overlay mosaic crochet option.

Flag Options

There are 3 flag options for this one square; and of course they each come with an option for using the interlocking crochet technique or the overlay mosaic crochet technique. That makes 6 squares for you to choose from.

There is an American Celebration Gnome, a Canadian Celebration Gnome, and a blank flag option.

I didn’t want to create three separate listings on Ravelry for this gnome. Even though there are 3 flag options it feels like basically the same square, so I’ve put all three flag options under the one listing.

And I needed to publish it before Canada Day so I rushed my testers a bit, sorry! I was cutting it close, eh?

Thank you so much to my testers! I appreciate having a team I can rely on and I promise I will try harder at being more organized so you have more time to make pretty things!

American Flag

Okay, it’s not actually an American flag – there’s way too many details to fit into this small space. But it’s an approximation.

Canadian Flag

Technically, the Canadian Gnome has a heart flag… not a Canadian flag. So you might decide to use that one to represent whatever you love. I couldn’t make a maple leaf in such a small chart space.

Blank Flag

The blank flag option is available for you to work some magic! Sew on an applique, get some fabric paint, or just use special colors for your square to represent you!

I have no intentions of creating every flag.

Celebration Gnome Details

There are three flag options, but the differences between yardage are negligble so I’ve listed one set of yardage details for each technique only.

You will receive two files: one for interlocking crochet with all three flag options, and one for overlay mosaic crochet with all three flag options.

A reminder, Celebration Gnomes uses a solid, adjusted chart for the mosaic crochet option so you won’t see the interlocking mesh dots on these squares.
