Gauge is not important. If you use the recommended size hook and yarn the puffball gnome should be about 4.5 inches tall.


  • G (4.0 mm) crochet hook
  • 4 Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Caron Simply Soft for the beard, Caron Simply Soft Party for the hat and Red Heart With Love for the nose)
  • Puffball maker-store bought or home made (Mine is 2.5 inches in diameter and makes 3 inch in diameter puffballs and my puffball gnomes are 4.5 inches tall)
  • Scissors
  • Darning Needle
  • Hot Glue or preferred glue
  • Yarn or string to hang the ornament
  • Small fuzzy pom pom or you can make a small yarn puffball
  • Stitch marker or scrap yarn
  • Small amount of polyester fiberfill
