What to Knit to Live Like a Hobbit
Did you know that September 22 is International Hobbit Day? Seems only appropriate to spotlight some great pattern choices for curating your very own homey Hobbit (or elf, wizard, dwarf?) aesthetic. As an added bonus, these projects would be super fun to knit while watching Rings of Power, if that's your thing!
The cornerstone of any Hobbit wardrobe (other than bare feet) is a comfy dapper vest. The Hobbiton Vest by Fabel Knitwear is at the top of my queue because it uses a strand of fingering weight yarn held with a strand of mohair for maximum cozy. Cabrito or Loft would be perfect choices!
If you're already making a vest for yourself, might as well make one for an actually tiny person in your life. Lisa Chemery has an entire e-book of Hobbit-themed children's patterns but this Hobbit Vest might just take the seedcake in cuteness. A rustic worsted weight wool yarn, such as Peace Fleece, are called for in this pattern.
