Auntie Gnome.
Waldorf inspiared doll.

The finished Auntie gnome is approximately 7,1’’ (18cm) tall.

The toy is knitted round and that is why the pattern is recommended for Advanced Beginner Knitters.

Materials needed

• 4 double-pointed needles in a size suitable for the yarn weight you are using. I recommend using needles a size or two smaller than the yarn calls for, to produce a firm fabric. İ used Needles size US 2½ (3mm).

• White yarn for body. I used Kartopu Flora / 100% acrylic ; 100gr – 230m /

• White yarn for blouse. I used YarnArt Summer / 70% mercereized cotton, 30% viscose; 100gr – 350m /

• Dark blue and red yarns for wear. I used Nako Vizon
/100% Acrylic,100gr = 195 m /

• Toy stuffing

• Yarn needle

• Stitch holder

All time İ am working in the round. This help avoids the ugly seams .
