I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling like I could use a bit of whimsy right about now. I love the idea of knitting a whole scene full of gnomes and trees and little houses and just forgetting knitting “useful” things for a while.
If you’re feeling this way, too, Sarah Schira has got you covered, at least as far as gnomes and trees. I love her Wee Apple Tree pattern, which is exactly what it says it is. The tree measures 5.5 inches worked in fingering weight yarn (the photo shows one worked in worsted weight, too, which is a little taller) and is worked in the round from the bottom up.
Check it and her other sweet patterns out on Ravelry.
