Gnemo loves ice-skating on outdoor rinks, hot chocolate with a little rum in it afterwards, and the fact that early twilight means he gets to light candles at supper. He features colourwork, a curly beard, and a cuddly sweater!

He was originally part of a mystery knitalong. ⭐️ There are oodles of video tutorials with this pattern so whether you have questions about sewing on arms, attaching the beard, or how to do colourwork, there is a lot of help!

Errata: the optional tassel is not mentioned in the Finishing instructions, but the link to the tutorial for making small tassels using a fork is part of the video tutorials section.
