Incredible Expanding Gnome Cap
Incredible Expanding Gnome Cap by Maureen Hefti
baby - 12" unstretched
Needles & yarn
US 2 - 2.75 mm
US 3 - 3.25 mm
pink petal

Used some leftover acrylic yarn.
Easy and fast knits!
Next time will use smaller needles for ribbing, or cast on less stitches.
Very helpful video tutorial from Staci of Very Pink Knitting.

Notes to myself:

  • made body of the hat one rapport longer
  • smaller size needles for ribbing
  • ribbing is 6 rows
  • solid colors look better with the pattern
  • next time will use wool yarn!

Added little bow on the side. Knitted on 13 sts to desired length. Mine is 3”x2”.
Sewed on securely.

Started a second hat in Lavender!

Received designer’s permission to translate the pattern!
Thank you, Maureen!
