I love gnomes. They're a little stoic, but friendly too, and they remind me of my childhood in the Netherlands, where my parents read me stories about Kabouters, a Dutch version of gnomes.

As part of my birthday celebration in 2021, I searched for some gnome patterns and thought I'd share them here. Click on the images to find the patterns online.

The first is part of a Garden Stitch Along by Durene Jones:

The next is a very tiny, very cute little set of gnome, tree, and mushroom images - great for cards and other little, tiny projects:

In fact some of these would be great in the small round frames we have available in the shop - or one of our 3" hoops!
