Harry Potter-Inspired “Deathly Hallows” Patterns

July 14th, 2011

Pin It

Since 1997, when the first Harry Potter book was released, yarncrafters have had a special relationship with the wizarding world. Throughout the series, knitting patterns are mentioned over and over again, as are magical needles clicking away on scarves, sweaters, hats, and more. “Muggles”, a term from the books, has even become a popular word among yarncrafters for the non-yarny people in our lives! Yesterday, we featured a blog post with Harry Potter-inspired creations from our customers over the years, and today, I want to share with you some new patterns created in honor of the last Harry Potter film coming out this weekend.

I worked with Michelle (Lion Brand Yarn Studio Manager/Harry Potter über-fan) and Gina (speedy crocheter, whose crochet monster blog we’ve previously written about) to come up with special projects in honor of the second Deathly Hallows film. We’ve created the three Deathly Hallows, made in yarn:

Capelet of Invisibility Knit Capelet of Invisibility

Make this shimmering capelet–inspired by the Invisibility Cloak–with two strands of Vanna’s Glamourand big needles for a fast-finish project. Michelle made in a weekend and is pictured here, wearing her creation. She designed the hood to be long and to end in a point, for a wizardly touch.

Resurrection Stone Ring Crochet Resurrection Stone Ring

Made with Vanna’s Glamour, with the symbol of the Deathly Hallows stitched on, this ring is quick to crochet and fun to wear. Tip from Gina: the ring-band can be made larger or smaller as needed–just chain more ore less stitches to start.

Elder Wand Crafted Elder Wand

Just wrap and glue Vanna’s Choice to a dowl to create this fast and easy wand. To create the knots in the wood, Gina simply wrapped more yarn in those spots. One ball would easily create many wands, so you could make them for your friends too!

We hope you’ll be making and enjoying these projects in honor of the new film–and if you spot me and Michelle, wearing our Deathly Hallow projects this weekend, feel free to stop us and say hi!

    How fun! That wand is pretty cool. Thank you for the free patterns.

  • Lamthern

    I would love to make the capelet in crochet!  Hint Hint….

  • Radiogal

    Could you get a woman with BIGGER BOOBS to model everything!?!?

    • Kimmomornana

      As a lady with a fuller chest I appreciate seeing models with “big boobs”.  What’s the matter honey, are yours on the smallish size?  All that really matters is what’s on the inside….

      • Jenny

        just because someone is knocking big boobs doesn’t mean you need to take a swing at small ones, just sayin’ .. all ladies are lovely whether they’re fuller figured or toothpick’d :)

        • Lauren

          Especially since small boobs get knocked in our culture ALL THE TIME! Kimmo is definitely not cool.

            I don’t think they are insulting larger breasts. I think they are bigger breasted themselves and are happy to see a model wearing something that will actually fit them.

    • GadgetGirl

      She designed it, she made it, she should be able to model it without the peanut gallery commenting on something irrelevant.  Kudos on the awesome project.

  • Bleyscryin

    would like someone to publish a book on Harry Potter theme knitting and Twilight Saga knitting ( there was alot of great knit pieces in the Twilight Saga)

  • Peachycat

    Love the cap. Would make a nice garment for evening wear on holiday when its chilly. Thanks

  • J800

    This was just advertised the other day on another LionBrand page.  I doubt that anyone who gets this advertisement didn’t get the other.  Just repititious and unnecessary.

    • Anjade

      J800,
      Just because you saw doesn’t mean everyone did as well. Perhaps you should think before you criticize.

    i so want to make the little capelet … it’s really cute

    if you read the description, you will see that this is no MODEL of the item, the person wearing it in the picture CREATED it and is wearing her own design.

    I totally love the capelet. I’m going to have to rework it for crochet. Lots of trial and error, but totally worth it. And hale to the ta-tas of all shapes and sizes!!!

  • Msj8947

    I’ve been wishing for the pattern for Luna’s lavender caplet ever since she turned up in the Harry Potter series. Now, in the last film, she’s turned up in another beauty so now I’d like the pattern for both of them. Anybody know how/where to find?
