You know how fun a mystery gnome is, right? Well, this one is MORE!

More choices!
More yarn weights!
More sizes!

What is all this? It’s Choose Your Gnome Adventure - a special gnome adventure all your own!

-You get at least two options for the hat, body, nose, beard, and arm designs!
-You get height, yardage, needle size, and gauge info for fingering, worsted, and bulky
-You get the choice of size of gnome (medium and large)

For those of you who have been yearning for a Very Big Gnome…I’ve heard you! Knit the Large Bulky Gnorton and you’ll be dazzling friends and relatives (and people across the street)! He’ll be e-gnome-ous.

The PreKAL PDF has full details for gnome height, gauge, needle size, yardage, colour choice, etc.

I’ve always encouraged you to play with my patterns. Now I’ve built a pattern that’s all about messing around.

I’m going to be WAY MORE SPECIFIC than usual as we go through the process this time, to give you confidence and excitement. The various pieces of the gnome will be given in their entirety so that you know exactly what you’re choosing. When you start the hat, you’ll see the all of the instructions for it. The mystery isn’t so much WHERE we are going as how YOU choose to get there. You’re driving this mystery bus!
