There are few fandoms that are as old, but still as popular as it was during the series’ heyday. The Harry Potter fandom is still going strong, even though the original book and movie series have concluded. (It definitely helps that there’s new content coming out. Anyone else really want to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child?) Because the fandom is so strong, there are tons of Harry Potter inspired knitting patterns. The following 35 Harry Potter knitting patterns are all free.

9. Weasley Twin Hat by bluekitsune

Weasley Twin Hat by bluekitsune | see more on knittingfornerds.com

This hat was patterned off hats that the Weasley twins were wearing in several of the movies, except for one change: “In one still, it is clear that there is a flaw in the repeats of the pattern. I suspect it is because the sizing wasn’t working out as desired with a full set of repeats, although it could also be because it was knit flat and seamed. In any case, I left that part out and worked the pattern out with seven even repeats.” I love when crafters improve upon costuming.

Skills needed:

  • Intarsia
  • In-the-round knitting
  • Bottom-up construction
