Out of the Great Sea to Middle-earth I am come.
In this place I will abide, and my heirs, unto the ending of the world
The Argonath, also known as The Gates of Argonath or The Pillars of the Kings, is a monument comprising two enormous pillars, carved in the likenesses of Isildur and Anárion, standing upon either side of the River Anduin.
Each of the two figures was shown wearing a crown and a helm, with an axe in its right hand and its left hand raised in a gesture of defiance to the enemies of Gondor.

Fringed Stole features winding cable patterns to evoke the river Anduin, framed by strong columnar patterns with diagonal lines just like the up-stretched arms of the Argonath statues/gates. The dense cables make this piece look like it has also been carved in stone.
If enough people want them, I will write up written directions for each individual chart, but knitters will still have to put them together in proper order. To write out individual row by row directions would be prohibitively long, due to motifs having different row repeats.
Thank you for your patience in waiting so long for this eagerly anticipated pattern. I hope you find her worth the wait...
