At last a book with knitted patterns based on the Harry Potter stories. For years, members of various knitting lists and knitting clubs have been studying the movies for knitted articles and trying to replicate the designs for their children. I know this because I spent a lot of time with a publicity still before I could make some scarfs based on the house colors for relatives who loved the books and films.
Now, you'll be able to follow a ready pattern to make some of these Harry Potter related knitwear. I'm hoping that once I see the book, I'll be able to offer more details about what's inside and what you can look forward to making.From release/information:
Book Description: The Harry Potter phenomenon and the popularity of knitting--a magical combination. An online search combining Harry Potter and knitting yields over a million results. This unique book features 30 patterns that celebrate popular Harry Potter characters and places. Knitters can create initial sweaters for Harry, Ron, Fred, and George; sweaters, scarves, mittens, hats, and socks in the house colors of Hogwarts; themed items such as cloaks, robes, stuffed toys, and a blanket; and more. A bonus craft project lets readers "magically" hold a work in progress. Easy-to-follow patterns and color photos showing the finished projects inspire both beginners and experienced knitters.
