Have you wanted to jump on the gnome bandwagon but don't know were to start? Here is the class for you!
Gnorton is an intergnational gnome of mystery, changing gnames and passports. He’s a master of disguise, accent, and quick-change. His only weakness is needing to know his alias’ motivation. His bosses didn’t expect to need to be novelists.
A mix-and-match pattern, this gnome features choices in stitch patterns, heights, and details that you put together to make your own version of Gnorton come to life.
Here is what you will learn in the class
