Concerning Hobbits was designed and knit during the Thanksgiving weekend while watching the Lord of the Rings and then The Hobbit movie trilogies. I bound off the body during The Return of The King, and finished the entire sweater during The Battle of Five Armies. It is a top-down, raglan sleeve cardigan with an easily memorized lace edging at the cuffs, collar, and bottom edge; the only finishing is weaving in ends. It’s a very quick knit, using bulky yarn, and has optional gentle waist shaping.
