The fourth shawl in my Game of Thrones Inspired Series. Tyrion’s Gift is a top down triangle shawl that is deceptively easy to knit. With resting rows on the wrong side, it’s a perfect project to take to knit group or work on while you watch the Game of Thrones Season 5 Premier. My test knitters Margi and Helen whipped through this pattern in no time and gave it raving reviews!

This tribute to Tyrion and his lady friend Shae is knit up in Miss Babs Tarte, in the Volcanic Eruption colorway. Tarte has a wonderful hand and is a generous 500 yard skein. Miss Babs dyed some up just in time for the pattern release and you can purchase directly from her site: Miss Babs Volcanic Eruption

Like most couples, in the beginning Tyrion and Shae were truly in love. They were both quite happy until Tyrion’s father forced him to marry another woman.
Shae refused to leave Tyrion, even at the risk of her own safety. Tyrion was forced to resort to sending her away in a rather brisk fashion. As a parting gift to show how much he cared for her, Trion commissioned a shawl in deep reds of the Lannister colors.
A single, simple gift to keep Shae warm was what Tyrion intended to give to Shae. The betrayal that he got in return was most unexpected.
