I never really thought of Napoleon Bonaparte as crush-worthy, but I’m swooning over this little guy knitted up by Zephrbabe!
She used the Tiny Gnome pattern as a starting place, then took it in a completely different direction with custom color changes and shaping, along with some perfectly placed embroidery.
And that hat? According to her Ravelry page, it’s the Tiny Sailboat turned upside down!
(Both the gnome and sailboat patterns can be found in Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi.)
He’s just the perfect historical figure for tiny mochi-fying, don’t you think?
It’s genius modifications like this that get me excited for our big photo contest coming up this fall. All you have to do to enter is add your photos of knits made from Mochimochi patterns in our Flickr group. Everything added to the group since last year’s contest is automatically entered in the next one! (You can see the details from last year’s contest here.)
For those of you in the US, enjoy the long weekend!
