    Ravenclaw colors are supposed to be dark blue and bronze 😉

    • Angel

      Ravenclaw was dark blue and bronze until Prisoner of Azcaban, which it was then changed to dark blue and Silver :)

    Is there a pattern (or something similar) for Crochet Gryffindor Fingerless GlovesCreated by: Cynthia Parkill?
    I’d love to crochet some fingerless gloves in a simple pattern stitch.

    • Zontee

      Hi Debbie, just type “crochet fingerless glove” into the search box at to see some options like the All Seasons Wristers and the Fingerless Gloves.

    zontee, what is your title on ravelry? cant find it. i mean your group. thanks.

    • Zontee

      Hi Dal, there are a lot of Lion Brand-related groups on Ravelry. Lion Brand Cafe and Lion Brand Lovers are two fan-run groups, Lion Brand Yarn Studio is a group specifically for our store in NYC, and YarnCraft is the group for the audio-podcast that I co-host.
