Pretty Little Things 03 - Nico the Gnome

By Louise Crowther

Blossoming flowers and trees, busy little birds and bees, and homegrown veggies and herbs, a garden is full of wonder. In our latest edition of Pretty Little Things no. 3 GARDEN, you do not require green fingers to bring these fun accessories to life, just your creativity and a few crafting essentials! With these three handmade items, your own private garden will always be close by. In Pretty Little things, we showcase 3 patterns all made using different handicrafts.

The 1st pattern in our latest edition is a knitting pattern! Louise Crowther designed Nico The Gnome, a soft little fellow ready for some fun adventures! While his body is made from Scheepjes Colour Crafter, his beard is made with our soft Scheepjes Furry Tales, making it irresistible to touch. Not to mention his little bell that brings joy to whoever hears it jingle.
