As if gnomes weren't adorable and charming already, make one knitted and pocket-sized and they become completely delightful! Right? Think of sitting one of these little guys on your desk or propping one next to your favorite indoor plant and this is one kit that is way too hard to resist! What about taking a gnome on all of your travels and taking pictures to send your friends? Amelie would have been even better if that was a knitted gnome she sent around the world!
These friendly little gnomes are perfect to give as gifts, or even to make up as party favors (if you can manage to part with the adorableness once you are finished!). Our Pocket Gnome kit comes packaged in an darling royal blue cupcake box, complete with a handle on top, and would make a delightful gift for your knitting friend, too. Plus this is a quick and fun knit and you will find yourself making a whole house full of little knitted gnomes! Gnomes are supposed to bring good luck, so why not fill your house with them? You can also use the pattern to make multiple sizes of gnome, depending on what weight yarn you use as illustrated in the last photo. We know, you didn't think this kit could get any better, but it totally did once you found out you could knit all kinds of sizes of gnome. That "Buy Now" button is right there up to your right...
This kit is packed with pure awesomeness and includes the materials you need to knit 2 small gnomes in the round:
Intermediate Knitting Pattern with download link for the pdf version of the pattern
100% Wool Fingering Weight Yarn in 6 colors
Two sets of 6mm safety eyes
All you will need to complete your garden friend is a US Size 1 (2.25 mm) circular needle, a tapestry needle, 8 removable stitch markers, and scissors! If you are a tighter knitter you might be more comfortable using US Size 2 (2.75mm) needles instead. Please note we do offer that you can add a set of stitch markers in a small tin to your kit for only $6. These markers are perfect for our small fingering kits! It includes 24 removable markers and 4 closed, snag-free shaped markers for the beginning of the round all in a cute little tin. You can see the tin of markers listing here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/611982215/wicked-chickens-yarn-stitch-marker-set?ref=shop_home_active_1
Finished gnomes are approximately 5.5" tall.
The kit will come complete with a printed version of the pattern, but there will also be a download code on your pattern for the pdf version of the pattern. The download is through Ravelry.com, but you do not need a Ravelry account to download the pattern. The pattern is designed by author and designer Rebecca Danger, known for her whimsical monster and creature knitting patterns.
