Gnome Spa Cloth for Christmas!

Greetings, everyone!  Here we are a week from Christmas; I hope you are finding time to be with those you love and to do some things that bring you joy.

Introducing the pattern for my Gnome Spa Cloth (…or dishcloth, washcloth…whatever).  This sweet little gnome will help you with all your cleaning projects.  Just a hat, a beard, and a button nose – with a wee bit of mischief and a lot of heart.  I just love this cute little gnome!

Skills Needed: Knitting, purling.

Size: About 10 in. [25 cm] square.

Yarn: 1 ball Appalachian Baby Design U.S. Organic Cotton (Sport; 100% Cotton; 194 yds/85 g). If substituting yarn, try using the largest needle size recommended on the ball band. You may have to experiment a bit to find the fabric you like best.

Needles: US Size 6 [4 mm]: 24 in. [60 cm] circular needle or straight needles.

Gauge: 20.4 sts and 32.4 rows = 4″ [10 cm].

Other Materials: Stitch markers (optional), tapestry needle.

The pattern includes written instructions and a chart, so that you can work it in the way makes the most sense to you.  I’ve also included some helpful tips on chart-reading.


In other news, the sweater I have been designing using this beautiful Yama Fibre Arts yarn is now being tech edited, and we are writing it for sizes XS through 5X!  I am super excited to be able to offer my sweater designs in more sizes.  I will post more as the publishing date gets closer.  For now, enjoy this beautiful yarn.


I wish you the most wonderful of holidays.  Thank you for sharing in my design adventure – it means so much to me that you are along for the ride!!
