About A Gonks Journey

In short, A Gonk’s Journey is a gnome story-based Crochet Along. It is a fictional fairytale about how Adam became Santa. Free crochet patterns can be found at the end of each chapter. The free crochet patterns are outfits for our Santa Gonk crochet pattern.

A Gonk’s Journey was an opportunity for us to be creative in developing fun new crochet patterns, supported by a magical environment.

All of the clothing and accessories are designed to be interchangeable so that you do not need to keep making the Gonks.
Of course, you could choose to make a Gonk for each outfit, adjusting body colours to suit. Guidance is given on doing so to match each outfit.
Bulky/UK Chunky weight yarn was used to make the Gonk. Accessories have also been made using Bulky/UK Chunky yarn or 2 strands of DK for the equivalent yarn weight, allowing the mixing of colours for different effects. You can make your Gonk using any yarn weight, just keep to the same yarn weight when making your accessories to keep to the right size scale.

Enjoy the Journey!

    • Hi Christie,

      As with all of the outfits, you use the same size hook as you used for your Gonk base. This will keep everything scaled to fit your own Gonk. The Gonks can be made in any yarn weight with a suitable hook size recommended for the yarn.

    • Hi Shannon,
      The Gonks can be made with any yarn weight with a suitable hook size. The finished size will depend on your chosen yarn and hook size. As a guide, I have used #5 Chunky weight yarn and a 6mm hook for most of my Gonks, and they measure approximately 17cm/6.5” tall. My smaller Elf Gonk was made using #3 DK weight yarn and a 4mm hook, and measures approximately 12cm/5” tall. Using #4 Worsted weight yarn would produce a Gonk approximately in between those 2 sizes.
      I hope this helps!

  1. Ling: I’m so glad that you still have Gonk on the site- I started 2 Christmas’ ago but never finished him-The pandemic helped me get started on my crochet projects again so I’m determined to finish previous projects before moving on to the new- Gonk will be somewhere in our house this Christmas and it’s quite possible he might have a present of a new outfit himself! Thanks for sharing. Carol

    • Hi Carol,
