(Want another December countdown? The December gnome Leave Gnome Stone Unturned is for you!)

Gnutmeg can be counted on to bring a bowl of egg gnog and belly laughs to every party. His favourite gift is tickets to see The Gnutcracker Prince. He recently tried out for a part in an upcoming Gnetflix show called The Gnome of the Gnorth - let’s cross our fingers that he gets it!

✨This pattern includes the gnome pattern, a bauble pattern (with charts for gnomes, toadstools, and more) 2 recipes, and a storybook!

My first gnome with legs! And they have curly toes! While the beard looks like you’ll be fussing with all sorts of ends, it’s knit as one piece with the nose and the fringe is created by unravelling stitches. Far easier than you think, and I’ve got a tutorial to show you the steps. (The long loops and the curly loops are both created the same way - it’s just a question of when you block the beard. See the notes in the pattern.)

Languages Note:
Languages with all of the original advent content available: English and German.
Languages with just the gnome pattern: French, Norwegian

Loads of video tutorials mean you have help all along the way for any parts that you need help with.
