Harry Potter Knitting Patterns

If like me you absolutely love the Harry Potter movies, you have probably noticed the knitted pieces that the main characters wear.

Mrs Weasley is an avid knitter – making sweaters for her family and gives a personalised sweater to Harry one Christmas.

This is super special, as not only is it a handmade gift but the first meaningful Christmas gift Harry has ever received.

The other characters including Hermione is seen wearing knitted hats, gloves and scarves and Neville Longbottom owns a very intricate knit cardigan in the last two movies.

Throughout the movies, you see the knit school scarves in the house colours regularly being worn by the Hogwarts students, especially during Quidditch games.

The patterns in this roundup are mostly easy for beginners, with some intermediate choices too.


A basic knowledge of knitting is all that is required for you to get started.

The Harry Potter knitting patterns below have been chosen with variety in mind, from a knitted scarf and sorting hat to the golden snitch, there is something for everyone.
