The rumply hat! That loopy beard!

They say you can’t go gnome again, but I can’t stop designing gnomefolk! Gnora prefers the North Sea to the Mediterranean and loves cold-water surfing. St. Gnick can’t vacation as often as he would like, but his workplace culture can’t be beat! Milk and cookies, anyone?

Pattern is designed to have minimal end-weaving in and need minimal assembling. It comes with instructions for both worsted and fingering weight options, two beard options, helpful photos, and 2 video tutorials. I LOVE making gnomes and I want you to like them, too!

Perfect for mini skeins and leftovers.
