Harry Potter Love

I love Harry Potter.

I loved all the books and I love, love, love listening to Jim Dale narrate the audiobooks (if you haven’t listened to them, you really should!).

The Ravelry Group, Inside Number 23, is having a year long Harry Potter KAL.

Any knit, crochet, or yarn related Harry Potter inspired project is eligible.

Here is the info.

So, kicking it off for me, is my Gryffindor Inspired Cable Twist Crochet Hat.

I originally wanted this to be a hat for me.

However, the yarn I used made this too bulky for my liking.

Even though it was made in the adult size, it is now a hat for my kids.

It is a tad large for them, as you can see.

Except, they really love it!

They fought over it last night and Miss ME put it on as soon as she woke today.

I plan on adding a huge gold pompom to help keep it weighed down and on their foreheads.

I really loved making this hat and love the cables it produced.

I plan on finding a “thinner” worsted weight yarn and making a hat for myself.

I used The Crochet Crowd’s video tutorial, found here.

I did notice that the video tutorial is different from the written pattern (just in the amount of repeats of the first few rounds).

Stitch count is important in the initial cable set up rounds, you can’t fudge it.

If you get that correct, the rest is a breeze.

I love cables, so today is all about making myself this hat!

(Thank you snow, a reason to crochet all day!)

Happy Crocheting!

    She is beautiful. I love how she loves it. There’s someone on IG makin’ socks, each pair a Hogwarts House. I want to do that and would love to have hats and scarves of each house. I’m a Ravenclaw.
