“I don’t plan on knitting by the fire while men fight for me. I might be small, Lord Glover, and I might be a girl, but I am every bit as much a Northerner as you… And I don’t need your permission to defend the North. We’ll begin training every man, woman, boy and girl on Bear Island.”
— Lyanna Mormont on when to knit and when to fight
This kit includes two skeins of Iachos in Smoke, and an Iachos Mini Skein set in “The Resolute Lady of Bear Island”, and a copy of the “Mormont” shawl pattern.
This design was inspired by the gorgeous colorway dyed by A Hundred Ravens and named for a certain Game of Thrones character. Like her, mini skeins are small but mighty! Unlike a gradient skein, minis allow the knitter to control when and where the color changes. This design makes full use of this ability to create a stepped pattern that evokes stained glass.
Each block of contrast color uses about 50 yards of fingering-weight yarn (350 yards total). Colorful gradient minis are perfect.
Mormont is worked seamlessly along the short edge, using intarsia techniques throughout.
