Another Yuletide Gnome

These little fella's are just so cute

The gray bearded one is the latest addition to my Gnome Menagerie. I knitted the body and the hat in the round. The hands and arms could have been done in the round, but I needed DPN's and didn't have any. I'm using glass beads for the weights in the second one instead of black eyed peas. I also had to comb the beards to get them nice and fluffy.

Added Note: I got the pattern from the Christmas supplement issue of Simply Knitting #8 (November, 2005).

Where did you get the pattern for these cute guys?

OMG! Those are the most adorable things I've ever seen! But I can't find a copy of Simply Knitting #8. Do you know any way I can get the pattern? ~ Laurel (lprager@earthlink.net)

They are lovely! I just knit one, and although it was fun to knit, I hate the sewing up! How did you modify the pattern to knit in the round?
