Whether you're a seasoned knitter or a curious novice, you'll find everything you need to create your own magical companions. Dive into the heart of Grimblewood with patterns for eight captivating gnomes. From Gnatalia, the garment historian in service to the Ladybug Queen, to Gnorri, the skilled gardener tending to the Ancient Oak, each gnome has a distinct personality waiting to be explored.

These whimsical characters are not just knitted creations; they're tales waiting to be told. 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. 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.

Then, grab your needles and necessities and knit 8 of gnomes that live in the mystical forest of Grimblewood! 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! Only 5 colours are used to make each weight of gnome, meaning you don’t need to invest in dozens of different shades.

Sarah Schira has also given advice on how to adapt your gnomes to make them child-friendly, if you wish to make friends for the little ones in your life.
