This parade of rainbow coloured gnomes is a fun addition to your Christmas decorations or you could just knit one for a quick gift.

The gnomes are small enough to fit in your hand and only use very small amounts of DK weight yarn. You will need two shades of one colour per gnome; the darker one for the body and the lighter one for the hat.

The main body is knitted in the round and stuffed as you go, using a combination of a bean bag and toy stuffing. Then the beard, nose and the brim of the hat are knitted separately and sewn on before adding a small jingle bell to the top of the hat.

All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease. You can do this easily by going to my fundraising page www.justgiving.com/frankiesknittedstuff

Happy Gnome knitting!
