Check out the Gnome Schooling tutorial playlist for help with all your gnoming!

Note: this version is listed as Version 2 (see lower left footer on pattern pages) because I added instructions that were not in the Jimmy Beans pattern. My yarn pooled delightfully right where Gnedwards’ hands would be. I’ve added in a colour change in the arms section so that you, too, can have little hands on your Gnedward.
