The Lord of the Eagles shawl was inspired by The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

This shawl was designed for worsted or aran weight yarn. If heavier shawls aren't your thing than follow the instructions for the larger size using a lighter yarn (fingering or sport) and smaller needles (US6). The resulting shawl should have approximately a 60-65" wingspan post blocking.

12 sts & 16 rows = 4" in St st

Post Blocking:
11 sts & 20 rows = 4" in garter st
10 sts & 12 rows = 4" in St st

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Pre Blocking: 55" wingspan x 16" deep at center / Post Blocking: 68" wingspan x 20" deep at center


  • US 10.5 / 6.5 mm 32" or longer circular needle

I started crocheting as part of my homeschool program around age 9. Knitting got added much later on after I graduated college. I pretty much immediately started with knitwear design and launched FiddleKnits.com
