What would geek knitting if we didn't celebrate the upcoming Hobbit Movie with a few Hobbit knitting patterns? We've covered a few Lord of the Rings knitting patterns in the past so we might as well highlight some of the best knitting patterns for Hobbit lovers. The movie comes out on December 14th so you might have some time to knit yourself something Hobbit related before then if it doesn't interfere with your holiday knitting schedule.
The Hobbit Journey Knit Along by Erika Jackofsky
If you hurry you can become a part of a Hobbit Knitalong underway right now (sure you'd be a little late, but so what?). It's a mystery knitalong where you only see what you're knitting as you go.
The Hobbit Collection by Brandi Spray
You could knit the Smaug Hat, part of the Hobbit Collection by Brandi Spray. It's kid-sized and perfect if you already have a little Hobbit enthusiast in your family. Definitely visit the collection if you have a Hobbit baby in your future. Seriously, this designer deserves a book of her own patterns because it's been a while since I've seen such a cute collection of baby and kid knits. (for grown ups check out the Maddalena Mitts -totally added them to my queue).
Sock Patterns by Claire Ellen
There's a second Smaug sock pattern, part of a whole collection of Hobbit-inspired sock patterns from Claire Ellen, called Socks, There and Back Again. This includes the Bilbo Socks, the Gollum Socks and her own pair of Smaug Socks.
More Hobbit Knitting on the Web
My Central Jersey has a couple of other Hobbit Related Patterns as well.
UPDATE July 11, 2014:
I found two more Hobbit inspired knitting patterns that will thrill some Tolkein knitting fans:
