A New "Harry Potter" Knitting Book Will Teach You How to Make Clothes and Toys Inspired by the Wizarding World
From handmade Gryffindor scarves to a hand-knitted Doxy doll, Harry Potter fans will have a chance to bring their favorite mementos to life with a bit of crafting magic.
You may not have a wand to wave, but you can still use your hands to create a little magic in your own home thanks to a forthcoming Harry Potter crafting book. Set to be released next year, Harry Potter: Knitting Magic is a how-to manual designed to delight all fans of J.K. Rowling's fantastical series, complete with projects that are based on some of the most iconic items in Harry's wizarding world.
As you'd expect, there are plenty of how-to projects and ideas based on the signature styles we've seen portrayed in all of the Harry Potter books and films over the years. Expect to learn how to make a cozy scarf from one of Hogwarts' houses. Whether you're a self-declared Gryffindor or secretly a Slytherin at heart, you'll no longer have to travel to the film's set in England or amusement parks in Orlando to get your hands on these fun accessories anymore. In addition to handmade Hogwarts gear, you'll find many projects that inspired by iconic looks from the series' most recognizable characters: Mrs. Weasley's Christmas sweaters; Fleur Delacour's snug cape; and Dolores Umbridge's frightfully pink cat-themed scarf.
It's not all cloaks and scarves, though; the crafting manual also includes a few of the most delightful creatures found in the Harry Potter universe. Knitters will be able to create handcrafted versions of a Cornish pixie, Fluffy the three-headed dog, and their very own Hedwig, a plush snowy owl that any child would be ecstatic to receive.
Harry Potter: Knitting Magic isn't due on bookshelves until after the new year, on January 28, 2020, but you can preorder the crafts guide right now. In the meantime, get ready to work your way through the magical series all over again—this time, with a few cozy items that have seemingly leapt off the pages and into your arms.
