Click on photo to return to woolly
gnome & mushroom.
Here the gnome pattern is turned into a witch, the woolly witch. The body is knit the same, adding
green for the face. The brim of the hat uses 2 strands of worsted weight yarn in the I-Cord Bind off, creating a wider brim
A big nose and chin is needle felted to the face, after felting, using matching green roving.
The hair is black and purple worsted weight yarn sewn to the underside of the hat's brim. Then the yarn plies are pulled apart
to give the hair a frizzy-look.
I embroidered the chain stitch around one of the boots to give it a striped
look. I have also knitted stripes into the boots, but no photo of this. The bats are cut out of black acrylic felt. Then attached
to a strand of black 24-gauge wire and poked into the witch's hat. The wisk broom I found in a miniature store. They are great
stores to find all kinds of accessories for your whimsical gnomes.
