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!

LOTR CAL week 6


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


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.


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


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?)

PDF for Frodo


PDF for Merry


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!

LOTR CAL week 3


I have to say, I am very happy that the small square work up faster than the centre panel! I’ve almost caught up on the week 2 square and made some progress on week 1 as well. Week 2 actually had quite a few colour changes but this part is over, and I only have a few rows of solid colour to go through.


And now for week 3, the design is pretty simple and won’t require that many changes, which is good! Behold the one ring!

PDF available here


One ring to rule them all, One ring to find them. One ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.

As always, the colours are only recommended, you are more than welcome to use colours from your stash or chose different ones altogether if you feel like it.

You can find week one here, week two here, and a photo tutorial for the bobble stitch here 🙂

Happy crocheting

LOTR CAL week 2

Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 7.53.16 PM

Hello lovely readers!

So the centre panel is taking me ages to finish, but here is the second week of the LOTR CAL! I will try to catch up and finish the centre panel and make a start on the others.

This week’s square is the first of the small 30×30 squares. It features the Lothlorien leaf brooch given to Frodo and the other members of the Company by the Lady Galadriel.

PDF available here

And here is the PNG file as well.

LOTR_CAL_week2You can find the first part of the CAL here.

You can find a photo tutorial of the bobble stitch here.

Who is excited? I sure am!

I might have a bit overestimated my capacity to make the whole centre square (which is 60×60) but I’ll make sure to share my progress with you ASAP. In the mean time, you can definitely join me and start your very own LOTR centre square!

So this square will be 60 x 60 and I have planned 12 smaller (30 x 30) squares to go around.

PDF available here

The colours suggested are in Vanna’s choice as it seems to be a pretty popular yarn choice for graphghans, but I won’t be using those colours exactly as it is difficult for me to get this yarn where I am. If you have easy access to Vanna’s choice and you find colours that fit better, I’d love your feedback. Obviously, if you want to use bits and pieces from your stash, you are more than welcome to do so as well!

There is no written instruction for the CAL so far, but if you feel like the graph is overwhelming and you would like written instructions, leave me a message and I will make it available as soon as possible.

I will be using the bobble stitch (you can find my photo tutorial here) but again if  you want to use a different type of stitch (like the c2c or hdc), please do so 🙂

I hope you guys will join and that you will share your pictures with me!

Until next time,
