When I went looking for Harry Potter yarn projects, I came across some fun things to knit or crochet, as well as some more serious intricate knits. Some of these patterns are free and some cost money, but they were the most interesting things I found.
First up is the Sorting Hat. Diana Scott’s free pattern tells you how to knit, then felt this project. There were other hat patterns out there, but this one looked the best to me.
I am a sucker for tiny things, so I was drawn to this mini sweater pattern by Heidi of Hands Occupied. While she has a snitch on this one, you could easily modify it to make a Weasley sweater with the initial of your choice on the front.
A free crochet pattern by Kaitlyn Yeager allows you to make your very own time-turner. (I don’t think the spell to make it work is included…)
The last two patterns are not free, but they were so cute, I couldn’t resist including them here. The first is the most complicated set of crocheted dolls I found. Allison Hoffman’s pattern for Harry, Ron, and Hermione also includes their pets (Hedwig, Crookshanks, and Scabbers).
But for me, the last pattern is the cutest. Kristel Koevenig’s crocheted Dobby pattern has the big tennis ball eyes and colorful mismatched socks. Bat-wing hears and that trusting smile… what’s not to love?
