Another integral part of Olivea’s gnome outfit is the pointed pink hat. I used this Gnome Pattern, but switched it up from a light weight yarn to use lamb’s pride bulky again. With 10.5 needles I cast on 76 stitches, and instead of 4 rows between decreases I used 2 rows between.
One run through the washer and dryer and it fit me, a second run through the washing machine and it fit Liv. The final step was to add on some needle felted flowers. So yesterday I bought a needle felting kit and went at it last night. Needle felting is a blast. I will definitely be using this technique to embellish more in the future.
