While gift crafting season is in full swing, we would like to take a moment and express thankfulness this month with a set of Pilgrim gnomes.
Mr. and Mrs. Pilgrim are rather frugal gnomes, reflecting their lifestyle. The only embellishment is Mr. Pilgrim’s hat band, which is woven freestyle on the TexaTURTLE™ with just a touch of a precious “buckle”. You could also weave another “hat band” and turn it into a friendship bracelet, sporting a pretty button.
The pumpkin is made using the 2″ TinyTURTLE™, with the leaves and the stem being 1″ hexagons from the BabyTURTLE™. The pumpkins do scale, so you can make bigger ones on the original TURTLE Loom™ or the TexaTURTLE™. Consider mix and match for a pretty table display.
We used Berroco Ultra® Wool because of the beautiful subtle colors of this wool. However, this project will work great for using up any leftover yarns that you may have, or hand spun.

This concludes our series of “A year of gnomes”, as we already have the Santa Gnome for December (that’s the one who started it all). We hope you enjoyed all the gnomes and will use the ideas as inspiration to make your own.
