There are gnomes all over our farm and they make us very happy. To honor their kind spirits, I designed a simple hat the entire family can wear!
Get your gnome on!

Knit from a worsted or bulky weight yarn. There are two sizes, child and (adult).
(tip- bulky weight = worsted held double when knitting) Red hats shown on models are knit from worsted weight and green & red hat shown flat are knit from bulky.

The child hat will fit a 16-18 inch head and the adult will fit an 18-21 inch head.
The magical mushrooms are cut from felt and sewn to the hat.
Template and instructions for adding the mushrooms are included in the pattern.

~ Sz. 6 (8 for bulky) US, 12 inch long circular needles (to knit the band)
~ Sz. 7 (9 for bulky) US, 12 inch long circular needles or size needed to obtain gauge
~ Sz. 7 (9 for bulky) US double point needles (dpn)
~ 1 skein of a worsted or (bulky) weight yarn
