Are they gnomes or are they socks? They must have ran away from a fairy tale!
These socks are knit in one piece, including ears and nose. This is done by inc’s and dec’s and working short rows. Hairdo is knit (or crocheted) in fur/loop stitch. Eyes and mouth are embroidered later on. You can give the gnomes various expressions. Also you can vary the hairdo’s and add details. Use your creativity to make your sock gnomes unique.
