Join us for a mystery Gnome-along!!

Sarah Schira of Imagined Landscapes is known world-wide for her GNOME patterns, especially her Gnome Mystery Knit-alongs! Her patterns are delightful and whimsical, and Sarah is really great about guiding knitters of every level through the pattern instructions.

The two of us have been collaborating on her Spring 2024 Mystery Pattern, Gnome News is Good News, which features self-striping yarn for the first time. It's pretty exciting...and I have created kits.

The "kit" is a special 37 gr skein on our fingering sw Targhee base that includes all the yarn you need to complete the pattern. 

*Please note, this was my test batch and while the colors came out great,  the striping section is 17 grams instead of the intended 20gr. This means there isn't a "Buffer amount" for C1. You may need to supplement yarn for that color if your gauge is slightly off.

Here are some dates to keep in mind!

  • Get your Pattern on Ravelry Now!
  • Use the code “GoodNews25” until April 18 for 25% off the pattern!
  • The First Clue of the pattern will be available April 18, and the knit along runs through mid-June. 

Happy Gnome-ing!! Be sure to share your gnomes using #gnomeMKAL14 


Kit details

Base: sw Targhee Fingering, 90% sw Targhee/10% Nylon

37 gr / 152 yards

The skein has several distinct sections that will be used for different parts of the gnome. The sections are easily identifiable and clear instructions will be given in the pattern and in a video for how to prepare the yarn for knitting. 

Here is a video Sarah made for winding up the yarn and separating the sections.

Please note, this is a yarn-only kit. You will need to buy the pattern directly from Sarah and she will outline the additional supplies you need such as stuffing, recommended needles, etc.
