This pattern is for a 100 stitch by 100 row banner featuring the Night’s Watch from the HBO series ‘Game of Thrones’. If you watch the show or have read the books, you know that the Night’s Watch doesn’t actually have a House sigil, so I had to create one.

There are two ways to complete this banner. You can crochet over your color changes, creating a ‘smooth’ reverse, or you can drop and carry your colors. I like to drop and carry because the front of the work seems cleaner, and I don’t really care what the back looks like because eventually I’ll be making several banners into a blanket with a fleece backing. You could turn this into a pillow piece, part of a garment… lots of ideas.

I was totally and completely inspired by nettagyrl here on Ravelry. If you are a Game of Thrones fan, she has two banner patterns. Get your nerd on with us and start hooking these banners!

PLEASE count your stitches. It’s super easy to miscount and then have to start frogging. No bueno.

As of 6-22-15, I have completely re-written the pattern and hopefully corrected any and all mistakes. I have also included a 4 page chart. Please let me know if you have any problems.
