Original Pattern: Morvarch
Knitter Extraordinaire: Robyn (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Inspired by shawls worn in the fantasy series Wheel of Time, Robyn modified the rectangular laceweight Morvarch shawl into a DK weight triangular shawl with fringe, incorporating elements that are described in the book series. Details can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: After reading Robyn’s description of the shawls that are worn in the book series, now I want to read the series! As the original Morvarch pattern is knit from the center out, Robyn used that general structure to modify the center portion to have a different design, and then framed it in cabling from Morvarch. She made additional alterations to make the shawl more triangular, and added sections to the sides, as well as fringe. Isn’t this so inspiring? Also, more books need to have detailed descriptions of knits in them, because us knitters just have so much fun bringing them to life!
