Knitted Gnome Family Pattern



I have been busy knitting toys in hopes of a good Holiday Season of sales here at Simply Playing.  Along with knitting toys I developed a pattern (last year actually, but finally written out) that I'm hoping to launch in the next month or two.  It's of a gnome mama with her baby and child.  Some will be in the store soon sold as mama with her baby in a sling and then the child will be sold separately.  Being new to pattern writing I am looking for a few test knitter's to test it out before it's made public.  If you are interested in being a test knitter please email me at ann"at" simplyplaying"dot"net.

  1. These are so very precious-I love that the mama gnome is wearing her baby. I know a few little people who would love these!

    1. Thanks for the compliment! It's a small world so it seems as I've purchased an owl and acorn stamp from your etsy shop a few years back. I gave them to my friend Denise who is an avid scrapbooker and she loves them!

    1. Thanks Lynda! My own family is a mix of skin tones so I like to reflex that in my toys.

    2. My family is as well and so I am sensitive to that paradigm in the toys we offer them for play. Thank you for seeing that as well and objectifying it in your toys. Just delightful little critters.
