Knitting Wizardry: 27 Spellbinding Projects

Rochelle December 11, 2015 @ 10:36AM

In 2014 Amy Clarke Moore published Knitting Wizardry: 27 Spellbinding Projects through Interweave Press. It contains patterns for men and women, as well as others that could be for people of any age or gender, such as scarves and socks.

The patterns were all inspired by Harry Potter, but you wouldn't really know that if you look at the cover or thumb through the book. More on that below. As I read through reviews of this book I saw that many people agreed that the designs are meant for people with medium to expert knitting experience.

I Want This - Help Me Find It

This is essentially the same collection of patterns that are available in the 2013 magazine titled The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits. The patterns in both are the same (though this publication is missing four that are in the other one), but the names have been changed to remove Harry Potter references. I don't know what happened to cause the name changes but I can't help but wonder if the magazine got in legal trouble for using Harry Potter characters and places in their pattern names.

I have listed the differences between the two books to help you decide which one is right for you. I.E. You might prefer the Harry Potter references or you might want larger sized charts if you find it difficult to look at smaller charts.
