This is the original gnome pattern from Sarah Schira that started our gnome knitting obsession. It includes detailed instructions and tips on the best way to stuff your creation.

Whimsical, dapper, endlessly delightful. I find making them so addictive that my teenaged son started to joke that I needed my own hashtag: #nevernotgnoming. Once I started I could hardly stop, and soon I was improvising ways to make them faster and simpler. You'll get three gnome patterns in one: a small gnome ornament, a medium gnome that stands, and a larger gnome to rule whimsically and benevolently over all other gnomes. You also get 2 beard styles - horizontal and vertical.
