The Gates of Moria
This pattern is based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s drawing that was also used in Peter Jackson’s movie. According to the book, the Gates are only visible under the moonlight; that’s why I used light yarn on dark background for the first sample pair (and that’s how the pattern is charted). However, you can also knit it dark on light, just like in the Tolkien’s drawing ;-)) .
