Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the round, kitchener stitch, Right Twist and Left Twist stitches

Pattern Description:

R.R. Martin's character Stannis Baratheon is the very serious, very hard brother of the "usurper" king. He is bitter, he cannot suffer fools, and is tired of being the butt of every courtly joke. He was key in helping his brother ascend to the throne but feels he wasn't compensated properly for his suffering. He is a very hard, very unbending man.

This stitch pattern reminds me of Stannis. After studying the diamonds for a few minutes, you can see that the sharp lines don't actually meet; the diamonds are not complete. Like Stannis and the personal/political goals that drive him. He's just not there yet.

Pattern contains both full written and charted instructions.

I'm a knitwear designer living in the beautiful East Coast province of New Brunswick, Canada. I started knitting as a small child and the thrill of creating with sticks and string still has the power to make me forget laundry and such chores. When not in my studio, you can find me petting skeins at my local yarn shop.
