Announcing the Gnome de Plume Mystery Knitalong! Gnancy, Gnicholas, and all the other gnomes invite you to create a brand gnew gnome friend to join them! Gnatalie is gnome around the world as a pre-eminent author of gardening advice, and her “Toadstools for Everyday” and “Fungus, Flowers, and Fun” are Gnew York Times bestsellers.

How does it work?
(Watch me chatter about it on YouTube!)

How the gnome looks is a mystery - that’s the whole point! But I can tell you you’ll get a new hat and a new beard design, and that if you like my other gnomes you’ll find this one a happy addition to your collection.

Every few days you’ll receive a new clue - the next piece of the pattern.

Mar 11 - first clue
Mar 16 - second clue
Mar 20 - third clue
March 25 - last clue
April 9 - last day to enter your finished gnome for a chance to win a prize
April 11 - prize winner announcements

Every clue has one or more video tutorials to help you. Join us in the MKAL thread in the Imagined Landscapes Ravelry group to ask questions and show your progress. I’ll also be doing sessions on Instagram Live to answer questions.

What do I need?
•Yarn - Approximate yardage fingering weight yarn (with a 15% buffer)
•Colour 1 (Hat): 56 yd. / 51 m, approx. 14 g
•Colour 2 (body): 66 yd. / 60 m, approx. 18 g
•Colour 3 (beard): 14 yd. / 13 m, approx. 4 g
•Colour 4 (nose/hands): 5 yd. / 5 m, approx. 2 g

You’ll need yarn, needles, stuffing, poly pellets, and a sense of adventure. When you buy the pattern you’ll get a document with all the information you need before casting on… a materials list including yardage amounts for fingering weight yarn, colour recommendations, gauge info, and more.

Want the experts to put colours together for you? 4 awesome dyers have seen the gnome and concocted sets of colours for you to order. Check out their mini-skein combos and order soon to have the yarns before we start!
