Here We Gnome Again - knitting PDF pattern
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 pattern!
