Arda, the world in which the Silmarillion and Lord of the Rings takes place, seemed the perfect name for this shawl pattern, which was knit using Lord of the Rings inspired yarn and provides a world of creative possibilities. Bias knitting provides the perfect blend of simplicity and engaging knitting, while an easily memorizable two-row pattern repeat is simple enough for mindless knitting and engaging enough to keep you knitting. The eyelet moss stitch also creates a lovely open texture without being too hole-y while also being the perfect stitch pattern for blending subtle fades. With instructions for a large and small shawl as well as a scarf version, Arda is sure to become a staple of your wardrobe, whichever size you choose to knit.
