Notes

symbolism in sweater
tree of gondor
with a woodland elf hood
with smaug the dragon on the side of the hood
and the knot work is to represent the dwarfs
she has nine closure for the ring wraths
wizard is the color

where it goes around her middle finger is where frodo wore the ring last when it was bit off so it represents both frodo and the ring.

my daughter who knitted this is the person in the photos

She added two dragons to the hat to represent smaug

This project is being made by my 17 year old daughter she started it in her 10th grade year at 16 she is now half way through her 11th grade year at school

yarn was found thrift shopping
needle are size 1 vintage needles being used
she ruffly doubled up the stitches in the pattern and combined the two patterns to make her own design

she doubled her thread and the number of stitches to get the correct amount of inches

This is her first attempt at cables and her first attempt at making a sweater her first attempt at a blog post her first attempt at lace weight, her first at redrafting a pattern ( multiple patterns) into something she could use. I think she is doing awesome and her first attempt at making something this elaborate and detailed

she is still working on the sleeves and wants to make a hood too depending on how long the yarn holds out meaning if she has enough.
