It seems only fitting that we should begin our exploration of themes from The Two Towers with a piece designed to represent one of those towers.

Barad Dur is a quick little shawlette, knit from the bottom or outside up & inward, decreasing as you go. The patterning is only on the outer edges, so once you have worked through the chart or directions for that portion, it is an easy stretch of stockinette until bind off.

Pattern’s lace motif features the Eye of Sauron.

Intermediate level - charted & written

Barad Dur never looked so good!
