Meet Gnancy and Gneville. Gnancy likes to read The Fellowship of the Ringswhile sipping mead. Gneville can’t sit still and enjoys rugby and Quidditch.
Gorgeous twisted stitch cables trace elegant patterns all over the hat and body. Just like all of my gnome patterns, there are a number of tricks to keep the sewing to a minimum.
There are 4 tutorial videos on cabling without a cable needle on my YouTube Channel that I made specifically to help you with these twisted stitch cables. There are links in the pattern.
PS - want this hat for yourself? Me, too! That's why there's the G'night Cap
