The Fellowship of the Knits: Lord of the Rings: The Unofficial Knitting Book
Author: Tanis Gray
Knit your way across J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth, from the Shire’s idyllic countryside to the Elfin palaces of Rivendell, with this first-ever Lord of the Rings knitting guide. With patterns to suit your every otherworldly mood, this book includes cozy knits to languish by the fire in at Bag End, rustic outerwear to enjoy a beer and a warm bowl of stew at The Prancing Pony Inn, and elegant laces suited for the lush, peaceful valley of Rivendell.
Inspired by the popular books and film adaptations—including beloved characters, locations, and natural elements––this guide features a variety of knitting techniques, like cables, lace, colorwork, brioche, and textured stitches, and it includes patterns for apparel, accessories, and home décor for every skill level. From the Hobbits’ warm, rustic knits and the Dwarves’ rugged armor to the intricate, lacy garments of the Elves of Rivendell, there’s a pattern to suit everyone in your life.
With detailed instructions and stunning full-color photography, knit yourself an Elf Maiden Cloak, Second Breakfast Socks and Mittens, an Elven Bread Shawl, a Dwarf Battle Helmet, a One Ring to Warm Them All Scarf, a Precioussss Doll, and more with the help of this homage to the beautiful world of The Lord of the Rings.
