The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits magazine, published by Interweave Press and edited by Amy Clarke Moore in 2013, contains 31 patterns inspired by the Harry Potter books and movies. If you know how to knit and you want to add a touch of magic to your wardrobe, then you will love the designs found inside this magazine!
You will find patterns for men and women, as well as many others that can be worn by people of any age or gender, such as scarves, socks, and hats. 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.
This is essentially the same collection of patterns that are available in the 2014 book titled Knitting Wizardry. 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.
