Notes

Santa gnome is coming to town in Texas (aka ‘no snow’).

Be warned: These gnomes are too cute to stop after making just one …

Additional Materials:
- A small amount of stuffing.

Instructions:

  • Weave two 6” hexagons in red for the body and the hat.

  • Weave one 4” hexagon in beige for the head.

  • Weave one 2” hexagon in beige for the nose.

  • Weave two 2” hexagons in dark brown for the feet.

  • Weave one 2” hexagon in white plush for the beard.

  • To form the body, weave a piece of yarn all around one 6” red hexagon and pull it close a little bit. Stuff. Pull tight the opening to about 1.5” and secure.

  • To form the head, weave a yarn end all around the 4” beige hexagon and pull it in. Stuff. Pull tight the opening to about 1.5” and secure.

  • Sew head to body.

  • To form the nose, weave a yarn end all around the 2” beige hexagon and pull it. Stuff. Pull tight the opening to about 0.5” and secure.

  • Sew nose onto the head.

  • For each foot, weave a yarn end all around a 2” brown hexagon and pull it in. Stuff. Pull tight to close the opening. Sew feet to body.

  • For the hat, weave in the ends on the last 6” red hexagon. Fold it in half. Pull in the top fold to form a tip, then sew along the length of one hexagon side to form the hat.

  • Very lightly stuff the hat, then position it onto the gnome’s head and body as pictured and secure with a few stitches.
