This Gnome Family is knit in the round, using Magic Loop or double pointed needles. The base/body, feet, arms and head are all knit on as you work along. Mama and Papa are approx. 7” tall (without hat) and Lil’ Gnome is approx. 5 ½” tall (without hat). They are created using #3-light wt. (DK wt.) yarn, and I have used Aran wt. yarn for hair, beard and Papa’s gown, but DK wt. yarn could be used for those, as well. These darling Gnomes are free-standing on a flat base and their clothes are not removable.
