Free Ravelry Patter for Norman the Doorman Knitted Gnome. A few years ago I lived in Germany and developed a love/hate thing for gnomes, but eventually they grew on me. This gnome is large - over a foot tall. You can get a free account at Ravelry but to see the project here is the link.
Norman the Doorman is a super-sized Gnome for your Home, inspired by Raynor Gellatly’s Travelling Gnome, with a few differences - Normie is knit in the round from the bottom up, is almost 9” tall, and 15” round, and unlike the Travelling Gnome, Normie is no world traveler. In fact, he is the ultimate home body, guaranteed to stand guard at your door until the cows come home. So grab some indestructible acrylic yarn and get your gnome on.
