I missed where it says what size peg you use for these large gnomes?

You need to go to the actual

You need to go to the actual directions which I've linked to at the top of this article. That can be found here http://weefolkart.com/content/large-gnomes-little-hands

But, the answer to your question is I used a Large People Body (wooden peg) that measures 3 9/16" x 1 1/8"

Have fun making them :)

Oh my, Kimara! How cute are

Oh my, Kimara! How cute are these! Can't wait to make these little fellas!

They are so adorable! I also

They are so adorable! I also wish I could do embroidery like that, it really takes the gnomes to a whole other level with that kind of "decoration" on them. I think it's time I look it up so I can make some like that too :)

All the stitches I used can

All the stitches I used can be found in our stitch glossary http://weefolkart.com/content/glossary As in all things in life, do it one stitch at a time and you'll do great :)

These are so cute! I only wish my embroidery skills were better. Hmmm,., perhaps I could needle felt the designs instead. ;-)

These are beautiful. I wish I'd had toys like that when I was a little girl.

I agree. I wish I had toys

I agree. I wish I had toys like that when I was a little girl. As a matter of fact, my children always had natural toys, but I didn't make most of them. My grandbabies on the other hand ... :)
