Charmed Knits: Projects for Fans of Harry Potter

Rochelle May 12, 2017 @ 11:59AM

Author and knitter Alison Hansel wrote Charmed Knits: Projects For Fans Of Harry Potter in 2007. The book contains 28 magical patterns that are sure to delight Potterheads. Many of the patterns in this book can be found for free if you look hard enough, but this book conveniently puts them all in one place that you can refer back to any time you want.

Ms. Hansel clearly explains exactly what you need for each pattern, instructions with pictures, descriptions of the various knitting techniques, and definitions of the abbreviations used in the book. We Muggles might not be able to knit with magic like Mrs. Weasley but these patterns will make it look like we did!

Here are a couple of pictures of two patterns in this book. The patterns are for the 'H' sweater Mrs. Weasley knit for Harry Potter during his first Christmas at Hogwarts. The second patter is for Mrs. Weasley's colorful sweater (she might not be a fashion plate, but she is nothing if not unique!).

I don't knit so I have no idea if these are laid out well or not, but I'm sure you will be able to tell if you are a knitter.
