I have always loved knitting, my mom taught me to knit when I was 5 years old. I live in South Africa with my wonderful husband and our four children. We have a little suburban homestead where we grow veggies and fruit and live a sustainable lifestyle. We have a whole troop of chickens, rabbits, cats, birds, fish and a Labrador called Sandy. I love to create designs of animals. I look at their shape, watch their movement and then I can see a pattern of stitches forming before my eyes, its like magic! Have an inspired day.
This listing is for my Christmas Gnome Pattern.
I have been wanting to design a pattern for a gnome for ages and now here he is! I have knitted him in a Christmas theme, but he could be any theme really, Spring, Autumn, Winter, just change his colours and there you go:)
He measures 11.5 inches from his toes to the tip of his gnome hat.
I have knitted him in a handspun yarn in a chunky weight on size 4mm circular and double pointed needles. This pattern is knitted in the round with decreasing and increasing. You could knit in the Magic Loop or use DPNs. I have also knitted with i-cords.
A sweet pattern indeed!
He can either have a needle felted beard or none at all, the choice is yours:)
AND if there is ever anything you don't understand in any of my patterns, you can just email me right away and we will work it out together:)
Thank you so much for visiting my shop and have a lovely day:)
Please note, this pattern is for personal use only, and not for resale, items knitted from this pattern may not be sold for commercial purposes, thank you.
