Happy Sunday!

This week on the LOTR Crochet along, we have Aragorn joining us! I don’t know about you, but Aragorn has always been one of my favourite characters. That is, just after a well-known elf who will soon be joining us 😉

The beard was pretty hard to get right on this one, but I’m happy with how it turned out 🙂

You can find the other graphs for week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, week 5, week 6, week 7, week 8, week 9 and week 10 by clicking on the links.

 

Lots of love,

LOTR CAL week 10

LOTR_week10_banner

We have reached week 10 of the LOTR crochet along, which means that there are only 3 weeks left after this one! How exciting!

The last 4 weeks will be the heroes of each race, Gimli for the dwarves, Aragorn for the men and Legolas for the elves, as well as the last corner panel. You will have a choice for this one between Arwen’s star and the tree of Gondor.

This week though is dedicated to Gimli, son of Gloin.

LOTR CAL week 7

Happy Sunday!

This week, on our Lord of the Rings crochet along, we have Gandalf the Grey. I just love Gandalf’s character in both the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings series. Let’s face it, he is pretty kickass!

So here he is, with a red background in memory of his fight against the Balrog 🙂

Next week we will have the remaining of the bad guys, the Witch King of Angmar and the alternative square for Smaug.

As usual, you can find the squares for week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, week 5 and week 6 by clicking on the links.

Happy crocheting!

Hello readers!

It is time for week 6 of our LOTR crochet along! Today we have our first wizard, Saruman the white. He is holding his staff and the Palantir. Next week we will have Gandalf the grey join us. I have to admit I haven’t started Sam yet but I hope to start him over the week. I might not have too much time with my family arriving this week but I’ll try my best to post some pics of the work in progress 🙂

LOTR CAL – Frodo square 

Happy Wednesday! 

I’ve been finding keeping up with all the squares a bit hard lately, probably because of all the prep for the wedding 🙂 

Also I really love the bobble stitch but it is super long to make!

Anyways, here is Frodo 🙂 now onto Sam!


I hope you guys have a great week!

LOTR CAL week 5

LOTR_week5_banner

I cannot believe that today is the first day of May already. We are now kicking off our second month of LOTR graphghans. As promised, today I will share with you Samwise Gamgee and Peregrin Took.

Again, because they are characters, they take quite a lot of yarn change.

Here is Sam, notice how he is a bit bigger than the other hobbits? Our Sam definitely likes his food!

And here is Pippin, with his typical scarf.

LOTR CAL – layout overview

Hello lovely readers!

Today being public holiday, I finally found the time to finish putting together the LOTR crochet along layout.

LOTR_CAL_final_layout

From top to bottom, left to right there will be:

The Lothlorien leaf Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, The One ring, Gimli, The Lord of the Rings centre square, Saruman, Legolas, The Witch King of Angmar, The white tree of Gondor, Aragorn, Gandalf the grey and Gandalf’s pipe.

The background colours will probably be different from what they are here, I only added the yellow on Gandalf and Saruman to contrast with their hair/clothes.

If you want to mix things up, I will also release a few extra alternative squares, including Meriadoc Brandybuck, Peregrin Took, Arwen’s necklace and Smaug (yes I know he is not really from LOTR but the Hobbit is close enough! Plus, who doesn’t love dragons?). I might also include Boromir, Faramir, Eowyn, Gollum and a few more for alternate squares.

Oh, and I took a picture of my Ring square

I wish I had gotten a better contrasting colour for the back of the ring, but this will have to do!

Until next time, happy crocheting!

LOTR CAL week 4

LOTR_week4_banner

Today in our LOTR crochet along, we are having our first characters. In the original layout I have planned, there are 12 smaller squares, 8 of which will have characters and 4 with LOTR related objects (like the Lothlorien leaf brooch from week 2 and the ring from week 3).

Our first character is Frodo. I have also prepared an alternate square featuring Merry in case you prefer him over Frodo. Next week will be Sam and Pippin. It is totally up to you if you want to make Frodo and Sam, or Merry and Pippin, or even mix it up and use them in different combinations (and why not do them all if you really like Hobbitses?)

Quite a bit of colours this week so we will see how I go. I have finished the ring square but haven’t taken pics yet so it will be for tomorrow!

Happy crocheting!
