The Gnome is only 4-inches tall which makes it both the perfect ornament size or stand-alone toy. The Gnomes are knit completely in one piece starting from the bottom to the top of the hat. The beard, ears, arms and pointy feet are picked up and knitted directly on. There is no stitching together of tiny parts required.

Note that the ears and feet are totally optional so if you feel your gnome is good to go without, it’s just as cute that way.
