Hello Guys and Happy Labor day!
Here in Florida, Hurricane Dorian is still keeping us on our toes. We are all hunkered down just waiting to see what happens, but that does not mean that my crafting mind has been idle. In fact, I have had so many crafty thought in my head that I just can’t seem to concentrate on any one project. Could be because I am forcing myself to work on the Harry Potter Inspired design for the Mischief Managed MAL, honestly guys, I don’t think shawls are my thing, at least designing them isn’t.
Yes, you read that correctly Mischief Managed MAL
I have been spending a lot of time thinking about Harry Potter and reading about Harry Potter fanfiction [if you want to talk fan fiction, message me I can chat all day.] and I wanted to crochet something inspired by the wizarding world of Harry Potter, let me tell you, there are some great projects out there! I knew I couldn’t be the only one itching for some harry potter action, so I came up with a logo and an idea, thankfully many of you are just as Harry Potter crazy as I am!
To continue this Harry Potter craze, I wanted to share with you some awesome projects that are Harry Potter themed or inspired.
If you are a knitter, you are already well aware of Erica Lueder and all of her Harry Potter Sock Designs, I mean Hermione’s Everyday Sock is a classic! Perhaps you have even stumbled upon The Weasly Sweater or Hermione’s Cables Hat My goodness if only I was a faster knitter! Let us not despair, there are also some crochet Harry Potter wonders out there!
I mean, they are releasing a Harry Potter Crochet Kit! About time I say! Now that we are on the subject of paid for Harry Potter Patterns I shall add some more to my swoon list.
“Mandrake or Mandragora, has been used to return those who have been petrified to their original state. ”
Can we talk about this adorable Mandrake from The Stitch Tower?! Been on my que forever!
The amount of Harry Potter patterns you can find is endless! Well perhaps not endless, but I certainly won’t have time to make them all. Just search Harry Potter on Ravelry and you will be awed! Here are some of my favorites.
Changing Staircases Shawl (KNITTING)

Want to make it? So do I!
There are just so many patterns to choose from, So start making your decisions because the first day of Classes for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry started on the 1st of September, and I don’t know about you, but I would not want to make Professor Snape angry! But do not panic, we have until a troll shows up in the dungeon (31st of october) to complete a project and be eligible for 50 house points and a prize!
Rules: Just one, whatever you make has to be related to harry potter in some way, shape or form.
