Introducing Noel the Gnome; his beard is knitted in an eyelash yarn to make it extra fluffy! Noel is 21 cm tall (including the hat). All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work a kfb increase and k2tog decrease, and sew seams.

- The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.
