Towering windows form the central theme of this long stretch of a wrap, with circular motifs that evoke the surrounding ring on which the tower sits. A winding river-like motif on the sides hints at the surrounding natural landscape that in the end contributes mightily to Saruman’s defeat.

Any solid or semi-solid color fingering weight yarn will work: I did mine in Rowan Fine Milk Cotton for a summer piece, but you may choose something woolier. It would look stunning in charcoal for winter…

The stole is worked in one piece end to end - no grafting or picking up of stitches required. The pattern is complex enough to be interesting, but you should soon memorize it and no longer need to consult the chart every row. The pattern is charted.
