Another Armwarmer: Hightower!

IMGP1779

Winter Is Coming Came and Now Has Decided Not Leave. So even though it’s spring, I’m still in a keeping-warm mindset. Today we’re giving some attention to a house that has been mentioned only in passing in the books: House Hightower. I’m hoping that they become more important in future books (they’re super smart and into necromancy – how have they not become more popular?), but for now, we only have a smattering of history and a sigil of a tower topped with a flame.

This pattern follows the same instructions as my Tarth armwarmer, with a different pattern, obviously. Luckily, this pattern is also simpler.

You will need: 176 white beads, 18 red beads, 9 orange beads and 3 yellow beads.

String them onto your yarn in the following order:
