I am a huge Harry Potter fan, so much so that I still have the Unofficial Harry Potter Knits Speical Issue from Interweave magazine and Charmed Knits in my knitting library.
Today I added a new book to my library, Harry Potter Magic Knitting by the very talented Tanis Gray.
This book is awesome and filled with a wonderful collection of hand-knits for every level of knitter. I will honestly say there are a few things I personally wouldn’t knit but that’s because I do not have kids or have friends with small children. However, the sweaters and accessories are fantastic and I can’t wait to cast on many of these designs.
From the Publisher: Channel the magic of the Harry Potter films from the screen to your needles with the ultimate knitter’s guide to the Wizarding World. Featuring 28 magical knits pictured in gorgeous full-color photography, this book includes patterns for clothing, home projects, and keepsakes pulled straight from the movies—and even includes a few iconic costume pieces as seen on-screen. With yarn suggestions based on the true colors used in the films, projects range from simple patterns like the Hogwarts house scarves to more complex projects like Mrs. Weasley’s Christmas sweaters. A true fan must-have, this book also includes fun facts, original costume sketches, film stills, and other behind-the-scenes treasures. is sure to have fans everywhere summoning needles, conjuring yarn, and practicing their best knitting wizardry.
Here are my absolute favorites….. and even though I am not on Ravelry, you can see all the patterns here.
