Bride and Groom Gnomes
These two cute little gnomes are a nice quick and easy knit with no complicated stitches or shaping.
Ideal for a wedding or anniversary gift.

320 yards (280 mtrs) in a 100g ball.
A pair of size 3mm (UK 11/US 3) needles. Used throughout
A circle of stiff card 1.5/8th of an inch (40mm) in diameter
