About the Pattern
“Leaf and branch, water and stone: they have the hue and beauty of all these things under the twilight of Lorien that we love; for we put all that we love into all that we make” - Galadhrim Elf in Lothlorien (The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien)
Putting the thought of all that we love into all that we make. As hand-knitters isn’t that what we should strive for as well? We don’t make things by hand because it’s fast or easy. As we work on a project, we become intimately acquainted with each and every stitch. Every inch of yarn becomes familiar to us as it runs through our fingers.
I love the thought of putting happy and loving thoughts into our handknits as we work each stitch, so this pattern was made to highlight two beautiful yarns that will make your heart sing as you work. Frequent color and patterning changes will hold your interest and 3 sizing options let you decide just how big or small your work of love will be.
The Kindly Hosts Shawl begins at the center on DPNs with a tutorial for Emily Ocker’s Circular Cast-On. It progresses through 4-5 ever-increasing sections of lace patterns designed and selected to represent some of the elements of nature that were loved by the elves in Tolkien’s novels: flowers, trees, and streams of clear water rushing over pebbles. The shawl finishes with a color-blocked knitted-on edging that creates the illusion of intarsia but is actually just worked with one color at a time.
