Wool Gnome Hat Pattern.


I am feeling honored today to have had one of my patterns featured in the latest issue of Living Crafts Magazine. Honored, I tell you. I introduced you to Living Crafts Magazine some time back, and to see my pattern and my girl on their pages had my whole family tickled.

The pattern is a refined version of this gnome hat from last spring. Those were the first gnome hats I made and Pardis, the editor of Living Crafts, asked if I would work up a tutorial for her. I of course agreed!

Edited: I get so many emails asking for this pattern! The pattern is available through Living Crafts Magazine by visiting their back issues page and picking up a copy of Fall 2010. Enjoy!

To celebrate Living Crafts Magazine is offering two of you lucky readers a free issue. If you don't already have a subscription (gasp!) or if you'd like to score an extra copy for a friend, leave a comment below and I'll pick two winners by the weekend. (Feel free to friend LuSa Organics, Clean, and Living Crafts Magazine on Facebook for extra drawing luck/karma.)

Comments are closed. I'll announce the winner later this week!





And a head's up for those of you planning to stitch up your hat: there is one error in the magazine. The pattern increase for a regular sized hat should read 400% (not 200%). (The 200% increase should make a sweet doll hat though!) And do upload your hats to the Clean Flickr pool when they are done!

    My daughter still has her gnome hat from school, they wore them in first grade for the Michaelmas festival. She’s in 4th grade now and I still find her wearing it once in awhile.

    Lupine looks so … gnomical! Great picture, and great design. I’ve already “friended” LuSa on FB… still really enjoying those products for myself and as gifts!

    Congratulations on being featured! It’s incredible how something so simple can be so heartwarming and adorable! I love the idea of making a matching doll hat also. So clever!

    Yeah!! Love love love it! Congratulations, friend! And just last week I finally (gasp! I know) signed up for a subscription – why on earth did it take so long?? Only problem is that it won’t start until the issue after the one with your pattern!!

    Love it! The timing is perfect, too, because my little one plans on being a gnome for Halloween and I couldn’t get my newly crafty brain to figure out how to make a pattern. Thanks!!

    Please include me in the giveaway. I have always wanted to subscribe 🙂
