POTTAH! Scarf-y Goodness


...know as Community Rules for you Muggles...

*Keep post on topic, this is a HARRY POTTER KNITTING (and crocheting) community. ALL POSTS MUST BE ABOUT KNITTING (or crocheting) A HARRY POTTER RELATED ITEM. Questions, comments, where can I find this , anything like that as long as it's about HPKnitting. In addition, all posts and replies should be in the default font and color so that everyone can read them. Some of our fabulous members (and we are fabulous!) may use alternated browsers and they want to be able to help you right away or just see the fabulous work you've done.

*All pics behind a cut tag.

*No posting copyrighted material.

*Use good grammar, punctuation and proper capitalization.

*No "Pimping" of other Communities.

*No personal attacks. Play nicely or you'll get lines with Umbridge :^)

*NO CROSSPOSTING of EXACT POSTS in this and other Knitting-Specific Communities, such as knitting, weasleysweaters, lumos_knitters, etc. Cross-Posting to your own journal or non-knitting HP-related journals like hp_costuming is totally ok! Posting anything outside of lj, such as Yahoo!Groups, is great, recommended even!

***Since we share so much in common with weasleysweaters, we don't want exact posts occurring in both sites. We encourage you to share FOs and WIPs in both! Any knitting specific questions can be posed to us but let's support our Sister-Community and SHARE THE POTTER LOVE!***

We are a friendly bunch here, not too many rules and there has only been one deleted post. If anything is ever of question, you can email us at hp.knitting@gmail.com or at my personal journal _gin.

Potter Knitting Links

Lauren Kent has been an enabler of epic proportions. Includes FREE patterns for both the SS/CoS and PoA style scarves, including help with fringe, washing, and color choice. She also has loads of other patterns for sale, throw a few galleons her way!
Original Scarves
Prisoner of Azkaban Scarves
Hermione's Hat (aka Hatmione)
Hermione's mittens
Quidditch socks

When you get ready to start the scarf, you'll need yarn. djinnj has done an excellent comparison of colors availible at Knitpicks. Check out her post here.

Weasley Sweater Pattern
Alison,(at the Blue Blog) the Queen of all knit-alongs, created this pattern she claims would be a "great first sweater project". It is sized from 20" chest (toddler) up to 46".

HiP Scarf and Silkie
Alison, see-above, also brings us this quick, hip (haha) little knit to show off your house colors. Now you can wear your Azkaban scarf as a light and fun skinny neck scarf, a sassy sash belt, or an almost serious school tie.

BookScarf from KnittingWithLaura
Need a quick gift or want to weight down your 6th read of Half-Blood Prince while you're knitting? Check out this little PoA style bookmark, made in DMC Perle Cotton.

House mittens
Ruth (at Woolyheaded) created these trapped-bar style mittens to match the PoA Scarves.

House-Elf Socks
Dani created these socks like the ones Dobby knit for Harry, fit women's medium.

Weasley Cell Phone Cozy
Natasha (at Gritty Knits) created this cell phone cozy that looks like a Weasley Sweater!

Dark Mark Bag
This is a pattern by Lindsey that includes our favorite flesh burning tattoo!

Easily Potterized Knits

mini-sweater ornament
This is a little ornament sized sweater that could easily be made into a Weasley Sweater.

London Beanie A close-fitting beanie just begging to be done in house colors a la PoA!
