What instructions are in the Witchy Gnome pattern PDF?
The Witchy Gnome free holiday crafts pattern includes instructions for the knitted hat, a large pom pom, how to knit i-cord legs, and gnome assembly.
The gnome's witch hat is worked with a provisional cast on from the crown of the hat to the point. Then the stitches are picked up and worked outward for the brim. Fast and fun!
The next step is to make a large 4-5" pom pom for the gnome's body.
Lastly, the legs are knit as i-cords with stripes added every few rows.
Assembly happens quickly with a hot glue gun and a length of pipe cleaner to create your little holiday mate!
