Pictorial Tolkien-Inspired Knits

I love Tolkien’s books, especially The Lord of the Rings, and I also love knitting, so I went looking for knitting patterns inspired by Middle-earth.

My search was inspired by this wonderful knit pillow by Kelly of Knitigating Circumstances. Lyle Stafford offers a free chart of the poem, although he admits it isn’t perfect.

For fans of The Hobbit, the double-sided There and Back Again Story Scarf by Frivolite Handcrafts includes images from the story.

For those interested in knits that serve a purpose, Natalie Moreva has intricate mitten patterns that are functional and beautiful. My favorite are her Gates of Moria and Tree of Gondor patterns.

Last but not least is another double-sided scarf for fans of the Rohirrim. This free pattern from IrishElinor is based on the banner of Rohan.
