gnomes.

This is a wonderful and fast knit – especially when I only have 30 minutes here and there to pick up my needles! M is calling this his ‘gnome’ hat – it kind of does look like a gnome shape …

Kate’s shaping that she worked into the pattern is amazing – it really fits around his head perfectly. It’s brilliant!

And simple. I knit this in worsted weight as I also wanted it a little bigger – he’ll outgrow it too quickly otherwise.

I had a very grumpy little one on my hands while photographing him – but he likes his toque. He smiles when I put it on him.

I will definitely be knitting this again – probably on 5.00mm needles for a bigger size. He seems to have a big head :)
