Gnot Just Another Gnome
Another dose of whimsy and charm! Another doable mystery for your needles! And this one has gnotwork!
Mystery gnome available in German and English. It is VERY important that you put in your email address when prompted or there is no way to email you the clues as they are released.
Gnathan is locally known for leading themed hikes. “Mossy Walkies,” “A 20k Keeps the Doctor Away,” and “Scree Slopes for Bees” are some of his highest-rated rambles. Like many gnomes, he loves the outdoors so much because a toadstool house isn’t somewhere to spend 24 hours a day, even though they’re bigger on the inside.
This gnome features textures and cables – hence the ‘gnotwork’ pun. Cables and textures and gnomes, oh my! (Oh, yes. It’s gonna be awesome.)
👉If you’re new to cables, don’t be intimidated! Cabling is just knitting and purling and you’re good at that already. Plus, I've got loads of tutorials to help you along the way.
The clues drop May 7-26th. When you buy this pattern, there’s a preKAL info PDF in both English and German with dates, yarn needs, gauge, colour advice, and other tips.
