This is a shawl pattern that is knit from the center top, down and out in a triangle.

The pattern will make the size shown in the photos, which uses approximately 440 yds of yarn. If you would like to make the shawl larger, there is an extension within the pattern that may use up to 880 yds of yarn, depending how large you want to make it.

Your gauge may vary depending on your yarn/yarn combination and desired drape to your shawl fabric. I combined a fingering weight wool/silk blend with a lace weight kid mohair/silk blend and used size US 6/4.00 mm needles to achieve the gauge pictured.

To approximate the look of the fur cloak Bran Stark from Game of Thrones would wear, a mohair strand was added to the base fingering-weight yarn. This combination gives a fur-like halo. Depending on specific yarn choices, gauge may vary from fingering up to DK weight. However, choose any yarn or combination you’d like with or without a mohair halo!

This beautiful pattern is a shawl that encapsulates three foundational aspects of what it means to be Bran Stark.

Since he is from the North, being a Stark of Winterfell, he and his fellow Northerners wear fur cloaks. The warm natural tones and addition of a mohair blend suggest the furry warmth of the necessary skins he must wear to be the most senior male Stark in Winterfell.

As the Three-Eyed Raven, he is connected to and channels his power through the Weirwood trees of the North and beyond The Wall. Throughout the shawl, branches of the Weirwood spread to connect the wolf-like Stark aspects and the etherial Three-Eyed Raven.

Bran becomes the Raven itself. The lace in this shawl is called “Raven” which symbolizes the duties that Bran must take on. The lace pattern even looks like a raven’s skull.
