KnitPicks Charmed: Whimsical Knits Collection

Knit Picks has just released a lovely pattern collection called Charmed: Whimsical Knitted Accessories, and I've got a pattern in it! This is the Gnome and Toadstool Scarf.

It's a textured scarf with intarsia pockets- one is a gnome, the other: a trio of toadstools. You knit the scarf and pockets all in one piece, then fold up the pockets and sew them to the sides of the scarf. It's completely adorable. 

The gnome's nose is a little bobble, just for fun. 

You will need several colors for the pockets, but if you've got a lot of wool leftovers like I do, bust into them and use your scraps! The main color of the scarf requires 3 balls of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Sport

You can get the individual pattern for $4.99, or download the entire ebook (23 adorable patterns) for $14.99- a complete bargain. I already spy at least two patterns that I MUST. KNIT. from this collection. It's great for Christmas gifts, and the timing is right! There's tons of time to knit for Christmas. Of course I say that, and tomorrow is going to be Thanksgiving, and the next day will be December 20th. Time, it flies.
