JRR Tolkien is one of my favourite authors, Tinuviel is the original name of Luthien, an elven princess from his book The Silmarillion. I wanted to design a delicate and ethereal shawl worthy of an elven princess, Tinuviel would make a perfect wedding shawl for a bride.
YOU WILL NEED 200 gms of Skein Queen Luminosity (100% Silk) - Silver/pale grey 4 Ply/Fingering weight yarn (400 metres/437 yards per 100 gms/3.5 oz) You can use an alternative yarn, but keep in mind that this pattern works best in 100% silk, due to the drape and fall of the design. 3mm crochet hook, or size needed for your tension.
SIZE & TENSION Tinuviel measures approx. 57 inches on the top edge and 31 inches from top edge to centre bottom.
Tinuviel was originally published in 2010, a new sample shawl was made and the pattern has been completely re-written.
This pattern contains the following….. Written and charted Motif instructions in UK and US terms. Full layout chart.
