Enchanting friends to knit, full of magic and mischief by Sarah Schira (Author)

Discover 8 enchanting little gnomes to knit, from popular knitting designer and gnome enthusiast, Sarah Schira.

In the depths of Grimblewood forest, tucked away under rustling pine and spruce trees, you’ll find the Grimblewood gnomes: an eclectic and kindly bunch, ready to welcome anyone who rambles their way. From Gnorri, the skilled gardener tending to the Ancient Oak, to Gnoddy, who loves a cup of acorn and chanterelle tea, here is a charming circle of gnomes to knit and befriend…

Need-to-gnome:

  • Discover all the materials and notions you need, as well as all the necessary know-how, including how to block, stuff and assemble your gnomes to create their distinct personalities.
  • Each gnome has their own distinguishing features: choose from hats with earflaps, cablework, tassels or whimsical curled tips; choose outfits with colourwork details, stripes or cabling; create majestic beards with corkscrew curls or delicate loops, or even add some beard pockets!
  • Suitable for confident knitters, the book contains all the necessary colourwork and cable charts, along with Sarah’s ‘Chart of Everything’: the ultimate guide to calculating the yarn weights you need for each and every gnome.
  • Every gnome is made in two weights of yarn fingering (4-ply) and light worsted (DK/8-ply) so you can knit your chosen new friend in a small or medium size. Or both!
  • Advice is given on how to adapt your gnomes to make them child-friendly, if you wish to make friends for the little ones in your life.

About Sarah Schira

“Once upon a time, there was a knitter who loved gnomes. She was always cold and couldn’t understand why she was knitting and knitting (and knitting) gnomes rather than cardigans. All she knew was that as she stitched on the beard and the gnome popped into itself, complete with a personality and a life history, she would instantly wonder about doing it again.”

Sarah Schira is a knitting designer who loves gnomes. A lot. Her gnome patterns on her Ravelry shop and own website have sold in their thousands, and she has an adoring gnome-loving following across multiple platforms she has over 22,000 followers on Instagram alone. To her delight, many knitters have joined her hashtag, #nevernotgnoming.

When Sarah’s not knitting gnomes, she’s working on knitting accessories for everyday adventures, filming knitting tutorials for her YouTube channel, and recording her podcast with her sister Katie that covers their favourite patterns, tea, knitting events and you guessed it gnomes.

Sarah lives in Manitoba, Canada, with her husband.
