Have you seen the movie that came out last holiday season, The Golden Compass? It's based on the trilogy by Phillip Pullman, His Dark Materials. Anyway, the movie contains some gorgeous knitwear, and I decided to write a pattern to reconstruct Lyra's hood, the that she appears in most frequently. And, for you, my friends, I decided to share it!
