Sister #3 said that her husband likes all earthy colours like brown, beige, sand, pale blues, navy, grey..etc So this little gnome is wearing Simon’s favourite colour.
I think I got the hat right this time. I turned the hat in such a way that it has a rolled up edge which is how it was in the pattern.
I used double knitting wool and alpaca yarn. This second gnome is softer to the touch than the first one.
Hope your week is going well so far.

Pattern: This is available online from Alan Dart - the toy designer's website. See side bar for the link.
The knitting pattern gives you instruction to knit flat with two needles. I adapted the pattern and knitted the gnome all in the rounds. If interested, you can see how I did it by going to the sidebar and click on a post folder called “Yuletide Gnome in the Rounds”.
