Woolly Gnome

...And the prize for the goofiest thing ever knit by me goes to... The Woolly Gnome!

This little dude is going to be part of my dad's Christmas present. He not so subtly conveyed his recent attraction to garden gnomes and his desire to be given more if I were to ever be at a loss for gift ideas. Since I have vowed to make all of my Christmas gifts this year, this was what I could do for him, gnome-wise. I plan to snag this little guy and hide him somewhere weird every time I go to my dad's house. He has taken to hiding his ceramic garden gnome in various places in his garden, so I imagine the Woolly Gnome as the winter version of the garden gnome.

This was made from the Woolly Gnome & Mushroom pattern by Marie Mayhew using Cascade 220 yarns. I modified the embellishments to suit my fancy.


  1. OMG - I LOVE this! He is just SO CUTE! Trinity you amaze me with your craftiness and always finding something new to do. Yay for gnomes of all shapes and sizes!

  2. That thing is funniest little creature I have ever seen! It looks like a little elf! I am sure it will make your dad smile every time he sees him. Mom

  3. Your gnome is wonderful. I just love to see other peoples interpretations. Your dad will love it too. He sounds like a good sport.
