Interweave Knits has released a special issue of their magazine – Unofficial Harry Potter Knits! For all of your Harry Potter fans, this magazine is super exciting! (And equally as exciting for those who just love class beautiful knit wear.
Here are my favorites and some yarn ideas for them:
Ginny’s Cardigan is featured on the cover and is worked in DK weight. E Lavold Silky Wool would rock in this pattern.
Bluebell Flames features an entrelac pattern. (We know I LOVE me some entrelac!) It is worked in Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend, which we have at the shop in a stunning array of solid colors.
Modern Stripes House Scarves are a unique take on the house scarves seen in the movies. Love it! The pattern uses the Fibre Co Organik, which we have at the shop.
Heliopath Vest is so unique and yet so classic. It uses Imperial Stock Ranch Columbia, also at the shop. This heavy worsted / aran weight yarn cables beautifully!
Owls and spells are featured in the fair isle design of these mittens. Such a great gift idea for a Potter fan in your life. This pattern uses fingering weight. Brooklyn Tweed LOFT would be wooly, warm and gorgeous or grab two skeins of a NFC Rustic Fingering for a brighter hand dye version. You could also pair one skein of the color changing Freia Umbre Fingering with a solid for a neat color changing effect.
The Pomona mitts are a garter stitch fingerless mitt that are inspired by Professor Pomona Sprout’s mitts. They require a DK weight yarn. Try them out in the Fibre Co Acadia for something soft, warm and tweedy.
Tracery is a stunning vest featuring a gothic style stain glass window motif. It uses fingering weight yarn. Brooklyn Tweed LOFT or Spud and Chloe fine offer many color combinations.
