Swirly is our third gnome in our Welcome Gnome series and was designed with a bright tropical colour palette, focusing on Colour #188 in our collection.

Incorporating a bright and tropical colour palette is a great way to elevate your needlepoint project. I love using orange, yellow, lime green, and navy blue for a playful and bold vibe.

These colours will add a pop of cheer to any project, and you can also experiment with different textures and stitches to create a multidimensional design.

So let your creativity run wild and have fun with a bright tropical palette in your next needlework project! Better yet, you can use these colours to create a similar gnome design like the one we’re featuring today.

Welcome Gnome is a series of six gnomes. A new gnome will be introduced in each edition of Needle Pointers in 2023. Needle Pointers is the American Needlepoint Guild publication. You must be a member of ANG to receive the magazine.

We introduced Florentina in the January/February issue and Dotti in the March/April issue.

All six gnomes are counted canvas designs, and a different custom thread kit is provided for each gnome. They are all very colourful!

The custom thread kit for Swirly contains

  • Colours #18, #37, #187, #188
  • all skeins are size 5 Perle cotton
  • each skein measures 20 meters/21.87 yards

More about our gnomes:

  • each gnome measures approximately 4 x 2 ½ inches on 18 count mono canvas
  • all the gnomes are the same shape BUT are different, one-of-a-kind, exclusive designs
  • colours are different for each gnome
  • each design offers a variety of stitches

Kit contents are generous, and while they may not contain sufficient threads to stitch a second gnome, there should be enough extra to stitch part of a second one!

All six would make a great addition to a children’s room, OR what about adding to your Christmas garland?

They will be a fun addition to your needlework projects. Please join us for our Welcome Gnome series. The thread kit for Swirly is available in the shop along with Florentina and Dotti.
