One of the very first things I knew I wanted to do when I decided to launch emmmysue.com was to help fellow nerdy crafters like me FIND cool AF nerdy things to make. Hell, my very first post was about some of my favorite Harry Potter things I've knit. Why create a scarf when you can recreate your favorite fictional character's scarf? Those cool AF arm warmers Rose Tyler wears in season 1 of Doctor Who? I've knit them. Bella Swan's mittens? I've made 3 sets.
So, it should really come as no surprise that I've pulled a list of some of the most magical Hogwarts knitting patterns available for my Harry Potter celebration month here on the site. As Dumbledore once said, "I do love knitting patterns."
5 knitting patterns for the Hogwarts student in your life:
Keep your neck warm with the “Cursed Scarf” pattern, inspired by the house scarves seen on stage in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Available for free here on emmmysue.com with yarn suggests for each of the 4 houses (as well as a color friendly option for all the book loyal Ravenclaws out there). Knit yourself one of these and you’ll be the envy of all your Harry Potter friends.
Nothing says Hogwarts Alumni quite like these hand knit Hogwarts Socks by Pauliina Mathlin. These aren’t for your first time knitter, but for the witch or wizard who knows their way around charts and color work, making a pair of these should be easier than using Mrs. Weasley’s self-knitting needles.
FACT: Hufflepuffs don’t get enough love. But knitting this “Hurray Hufflepuff socks by Karen S. Lauger should bring a smile to all your proud Badger friends. Not a Hufflepuff? Don’t worry, she’s also done up charts for the other three houses.
These Hogwarts Coffee Cup Sweaters from Pattymac Knits are easy knitting AND a really subtle way to show off your house pride while downing a cup of coffee. A great first time project for someone looking to learn magic loop and knitting in the round.
“Lion, Badger, Snake, Eagle” by Dianna Walla are some of the most beautiful mittens a Hogwarts student could dream off. Well worth the $5 pattern cost (or $15 for the whole set). I’m eyeing to make myself and my husband some matching Slytherin mitts later this fall.
