New Pattern: "Lothlórien"

If you are not a fan of tall stitches, this might not be the pattern for you. However, I want to encourage you to try it anyway! Tall stitches can be really exciting once you get the hang of them. In this pattern, I incorporate a taller stitch than I ever have: the quinTR. This stitch has SIX (6) yarn overs!

The title of this pattern, Lothlórien, comes from the Lord of the Rings series. I really love words that have L’s in them, and this name is quite beautiful.

Mid-way from the center you should see some little buds that I incorporated. This was a challenge to plan for, as I do most of my designing without much planning at all. But I love how they turned out and I think they add a nice bit of texture to interrupt all the splits I used around the center.

The points around the outer edge, before blocking, have a curved appearance. I really, really like this. However, I could not figure out a way to block them while also maintaining that curve. I even took some thin blocking wires, cut them down to size, and tried to use those along the edges but they were just a tad too rigid. By simply using pins to maintain the curve, you tend to end up with uneven lines, and I don’t really care for that. Instead, I blocked it as normal and it still looks good.
