I adore gnomes, so I’m really excited about the ability to wrap one around my favourite latte or give someone I love a gift card wrapped in a bit of bearded whimsy. (Although, speaking frankly, now that I’ve knit it I don’t know if I love anyone enough to give away this one!)

A note about colour choice: with colourwork, it is often important to make sure that there is a big enough contrast between the different colours. In this pattern, Colour 2 (background) needs to be quite distinct from 1 and 3, while those two can be quite close to each other.
