This December, count down the days with a fun mystery gnome event!

Longest Gnight has been a favourite holiday among the gnomes of the Grimblewoods for centuries. The Gnome of the Gnorth brings light to every house on the darkest day of the year. He’s ready to leave on his important journey this year, but his friend Gnombleberry is missing.

What’s involved?
🕯a terrifically sweet gnome pattern delivered in small pieces
🕯fun extras like a story, recipes, and other surprises
🕯27 email updates (with the gnome knitting finished before the 25th)
🕯simple knitting to keep December fun – no knitting gymnastics required

This December gnome will be a simple gnome in terms of both skills and fiddliness, because I want you to have maximum fun and minimum bother.

Skills Required
-knitting and purling in the round
-picking up sts
-simple increases and decreases
As ever, there will be lots of video tutorials covering every step & skill I think you might need help with.

Colour advice in preKAL PDF

I recommend US 1 / 2.25 mm and US 1.5 / 2.5 mm needles for the average knitter. I also list gauge (30 sts and 44 rounds = 4” / 10 cm in stockinette stitch in the round on smaller needles), but I know very few people swatch for gnomes. If you knit socks, use whatever needle you use for socks as your smaller needle and go up a size for the bigger needle. You want a tight enough fabric that the stuffing won’t show through and the gnome has some body to it to help him stand.
