Ever since the introduction of the Never Not Gnoming trio, I have continued to dream gnomish dreams. So here we gnome again!

Meet Gnancy and Gneville. Gnancy likes to read The Fellowship of the Rings while sipping mead. Gneville can’t sit still and enjoys rugby and Quidditch.

Gorgeous twisted stitch cables trace elegant patterns all over the hat and body. Just like Never Not Gnoming, there are a number of tricks to keep the sewing to a minimum, including a new nose technique taught to me by knitterpam.

There are 4 tutorial videos on cabling without a cable needle on my YouTube Channel that I made specifically to help you with these twisted stitch cables. There are links in the pattern in the 5th version, alert sent out on Sept 20, 2018, but you can also follow that link to find them.
