This is wonderful :slight_smile: I have the perfect earthy colors in an acrylic/wool blend (bulky) but no super bulky or chenille :broken_heart: I’ll be keeping an eye out for when the pattern releases, it’s super cute! Good luck with testing!

Oh my gosh!!! This is thr cutest gnome pattern!!! Id love to test for you!! Would Bernat Blanket yarn be ok if chosen?

Thank you! :blush: Is it chenille/velour yarn you have in worsted weight? If so, I think it should work if you adjust the hook size accordingly. I think a smaller plush gnome would look cute too. :heart_eyes: Let me know if you’re still interested.

Love your pattern! He is adorable. I would love to test him using premier parfait chunky if chosen. :crossed_fingers:

Sorry, I’m not sure if that would work. It might but it would be a bit of an experiment. :sweat_smile: I added more stitches than usual in order to get the desired shape with the plush yarn.

Just absolutely awesome :ok_hand: :+1: . Totally in Love :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: with him. I would Love to test him for you. I have several skeins of white premier parfait chunky and 2 each of cardinal red or scarlet. Does it take more than 2?

Thank you so much! :blush: I think premier parfait chunky has the exact same weight and length of the yarn I used, so 2 red skeins should be enough. You’d only need one skein in white and one in a skin tone of choice.
