Gnombleberry - Leave Gnome Stone Unturned | Festive Mystery Gnome-a-Long Mini Sets (MKAL8)
These yarn sets have been designed to use with the new Mystery Gnome-a-Long, designed by Sarah of Imagined Landscapes.
Here is what Sarah has to say about this festive MKAL!
This December, count down the days with a fun gnome event!
Longest Gnight has been a favourite holiday among the gnomes of the Grimblewoods for centuries. The Gnome of the Gnorth brings light to every house on the darkest day of the year. He’s ready to leave on his important journey this year, but his friend Gnombleberry is missing.

A little info about knitting Gnombleberry
This December gnome will be a simple gnome in terms of both skills and fiddliness, because I want you to have maximum fun and minimum bother.
-knitting and purling in the round
-picking up sts
-simple increases and decreases
As ever, there will be lots of video tutorials covering every step & skill I think you might need help with. Want extra reassurance? Check out previous gnome tutorial videos here and last year’s December Gnome here.

Sarah has designed THE MOST adorable Gnomes over the past few years, and her mystery Gnomes are the most fun things to make!
This pattern uses 4x20g Mini skeins and you’ll HAVE to make more than one of these. It’s GORGEOUS
I have designed three different yarm combbinations inspired by three festive colour palettes.
- Copper & Aqua
- Pink & Grey
GUIDANCE ON USING YOUR COLOURWAYS:
In the pattern, the yarns will be described as C1, C2, C3 and C4
In each pack, there is one colour that has a light and dark tone - I.e. dark grey & light grey, light green and dark green and light aqua and dark aqua. These I’ll term “main colours” below….
I recommend the following:
- C1 - darker of the two “main colours”
- C2 - lighter of the two “main colours”
- C3 - this is needed as a “punch” of colour, so I recommend the brightest colour (red, bright pink and copper in each pack)
- C4 - the lightest (light pink and natural in the packs)
PATTERN IS NOT INCLUDED. PLEASE PURCHASE SEPARATELY FROM IMAGINED LANDSCAPES HERE:
Super Sock Mini Skein
75% Superwash Merino
Dyed using professional dyes and processes and painted by hand. As a result, no two skeins are identical although they are dyed in batches.
Every attempt has been made to remove all excess dye from the yarn, however a little may remain - particularly with dark or vivid colours. Therefore, I always advise that you handwash your items alone. Reshape whilst damp and dry flat.
Colours may vary between viewing monitors. Please do not place 100% reliance on the image that you see as being a full reflection of the yarn. Please convo me if you would like more information.
