I truly didn’t set out to only do gnome patterns this year for Plaid Week ( I only got one other pattern published, my Gnome Wine Cover). I just sort of started working on a few projects from my editorial calendar, soon realizing I would only be able to get one, maybe two done, and since these were the most manageable designs, they ended up being the published patterns for this year!
They turned out quite adorable. I grappled with the decision of adding arms to them, but when choosing between the two looks, I decided I prefer the simplicity of these.
I am also beyond thrilled I had the perfect yarns for this project. I am a sucker for tweed during the fall, and Wool of Andes Tweed has the perfect colors for both the black & white and red color ways. That’s actually sometimes tricky to find in one yarn line!
