Harry Potter Knitting Patterns


In this post, you will see a collection of 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 personalized 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.

Knits Worn By The Characters

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

Throughout the movies, you see the knit school scarves in the Hogwarts house colors 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.

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.
