What’s better than a gnome? A gnome with MITTENS! If you’ve ever wanted to knit a gnome, this is a great one to start with. It gives the opportunity to learn cables and i-cord, and is a good entry into the world of amigurumi. The finishing work is minimal, so don’t be intimidated by having to put everything together at the end. As a bonus, you can knit an ice cream for her to hold - thus the mittens in summer.
Pattern calls for fingering weight in three colors: C1: 70 yd, C2: 55 yd, C3: 13 yd., She can be knit in any weight, though yardage requirements and needle size will differ.
Needles: Use a size that will make a tight knit fabric with your chosen yarn. Pattern calls for size 1 (2.25 mm) DPNs, or whatever you use to knit a small circumference.
Locking stitch markers
Weighted pellets, beans, anything small and heavy you can put in the bottom to make her stand up.
