Charmed Knits Knitting Projects Reviewed By and For Fans of Harry Potter

Updated on September 12, 2014

Want A Harry Potter Scarf? Charmed Knits Projects Will Help You Knit One For You Or For Your Fan of Harry Potter!

Since the very first Harry Potter movie, I have wanted a Harry Potter scarf. I even went so far as to purchase the yarn, in burgundy and gold, to make one. However, all these years have passed (the first Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was released in 2001) and I still don't have one.

It was therefore with interest that I read of Charmed Knits: Projects for Fans of Harry Potter by Alison Hansel. For the price of not much more than a single pattern, I can have a book packed with projects for people like myself who love Harry Potter!

Granted many of the patterns will be beyond my knitting ability, for I believe that remembering how to knit well enough to do a scarf will be a challenge. Knitting a sweater or a pair of socks, well, let's just say THAT should prove beyond my meagre knitting ability.

On this page, find my review (for what it is worth) of this knitting pattern book PLUS (and more importantly) find the review of other knitters, amateur and expert and even those who are somewhere in between in knitting ability. I hope it inspires you to make a scarf or a sweater or eve a pair of socks, if that is what interests you. And don't forget you can always ask a knitting grandma, aunt or friend to create an item for you...that may be the answer to my quest for a Harry Potter scarf!

Charmed Knits: Projects for Fans of Harry Potter Book Description

Check out this book, Charmed Knits, which offers many Harry Potter themed pieces including but not limited to a wizarding robe, an invisibility cloak, a sweater from Quidditch, a raglan sweater like the one Ron wears, a blanket and even some Christmas decorations.

Use the patterns to create Harry Potter themed projects for yourself or for the other Harry Potter geeks in your family.

Knit Today says there are techniqus and abbreviations in this book that will help novice knitters knit their way to Hogwarts.

If this existed in prior years, I missed it but I knew many knitters would be excited to see another source of inspiration for Harry Potter themed knitting. Love the ideas as mentioned on the cover: a Ginny inspired sweater, Albanian forest mittens and a Hagrid-style pullover.

Are YOU interested in a scarf, sweater or even socks knitted from Charmed Knits: Projects for Fans of Harry Potter?

      @TreasuresBrenda: The patterns in the book are very clear. The author is a very good knitter who can write excellent instructions.

      @kimberlyschimmel: You must be a talented knitter. I have a son who would love to own a Quidditch sweater but alas, his mother does not knit.

      I love this book! I just finished the Mrs. Weasley housecoat with the fabulous sleeves. I've also done the scarves, Quidditch sweater, and socks.

      The items featured here are smashing! I've don't plan to knit anything myself because Mrs. Wesley and Ginny keep me well stocked in charming knits.

      What great projects for Harry Potter fans! These would be fun gifts to make. Returning the lensroll to my Marie Osmond Heartfelt Giving book lens. Bet she'd enjoy these projects, too!
