Notes

Our Patriotic Gnome follows the basic gnome pattern, embellished with a (cup cake) flag!

Happy 4th of July!

Other Materials

  • (1) cupcake flag
  • Stuffing
  • Tapestry needle, scissors

Weave

  • (1) 6” variegated hexagon for the body
  • (1) 6” blue hexagon for the hat
  • (1) 4” white hexagon for the head
  • (1) 2” white hexagon for the nose
  • (2) 2” red hexagons for the feet

Assembly

  • To form the body, weave a piece of yarn all around the body hexagon and pull it close a little bit. Stuff. Pull tight the opening to about 1.5” and secure.
  • To form the head, weave a yarn end all around the head hexagon and pull it in. Stuff. Pull tight the opening to about 1.5” and secure.
  • Sew head to body.
  • To form the nose, weave a yarn end all around the nose hexagon and pull it. Stuff. Pull tight the opening to about 0.5” and secure.
  • Sew nose onto the head.
  • For the beard, sew one side of the beard hexagon right under the nose.
  • For the hat, fold the hat hexagon in half as shown. Pull in the top fold to form a tip, then sew along the length of one hexagon side to form the hat. Very lightly stuff the hat, then position it onto the gnome’s head and body as pictured and secure with a few stitches (start in the back of the head for even distribution).
  • For each foot, weave a yarn end all around a foot hexagon and pull it in. Stuff. Pull tight to close the opening. Sew feet to body.

Gently position the flag near the “arm” area of the body.

Note: If you don’t live in the United States, replace the colors and the flag as desired.
