According to my youngest son, it was about time I knitted a new gnome. He had clear instructions in mind! This time, the gnome had to be huge, with a longer fluffier beard and legs… Who am I to turn down such a cute request? And here’s the end result! I hope you like him as much as my little Taylan does.
(The fluffy yarn used for the beard has Taylan’s seal of approval!)
