My dad is obsessed with garden gnomes, so for his birthday this past December I made him the Starter Gnome from Mochimochi Land. I love to make 3D toys, and Anna Hrachovec is undoubtedly the master. From her wide selection of incredibly designed toys and patterns to the seriously amazing stop-motion animations she makes, my family and I are huge fans of her work.
This little gnome was so fun to make and knit up very quickly. I used a selection of scrap worsted and doubled-dk weight yarns in various colors from my stash. the best part of knitting up this pattern for me was insight into Anna’s construction methods, particularly the arms and legs - it’s so clever!
isn’t he so cute?
