Do you remember how I told you I was doing some secret knitting a little while ago?
Well, I can now tell you about some of it!
If you click on this link you’ll be taken to the part of Stansborough’s website that features their movie products. Scroll down, and you’ll see…

Those are knitting kits for both Bofur’s gloves and scarf!! And yours truly was lucky enough to help recreate the pattern and knit the sample! Such an exciting and fast-paced project it was too!
It was an immense honour and privilege to work with Cheryl Eldridge at Stansborough to recreate a likeness of the costume design for the dwarf Bofur’s scarf and fingerless mittens from “The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey”.
The patterns are now available for sale as a kit of both pattern and yarn, and seeing it all packaged up and photographed is such a thrill!! The folks at Stansborough have done a great job.
(I did not design or knit the originals used in the movie – just for clarity.)
You may have noticed that the yarn has been renamed “Mithril”. This is part of the licensing agreement with Warner Brothers.
In addition to their availability from Weta, other retail stockists of Hobbit products and direct from Stansborough, the kits for the scarf and gloves will also soon be available from The YarnSisters in the US, Lanamania in Europe and in New Zealand from Holland Road Yarn Company and Mynx String Therapy, amongst others.
Thanks again to Cheryl for involving me in this exciting project.
