I'd Knit That: Harry Potter

For this feature, I will explore different movie/tv/webjunk items that I would knit. Do you want excellent ideas for something to write for MOBFD? Come to chat. It's a damn good idea factory in there that is running 24 hours a day.

Have any of you guys seen Harry Potter? I know it's kind of obscure, but it's this whole series of movies that follows a gang of young witches and warlocks as they have hijinks at a boarding school (basically). Since nerds will be nerds, some knitting nerds have reverse engineered every single knit thing and even created knit versions of non-knit thing ever seen in any of the 7.5 HP movies.

But guess what? Some of that junk is cool as hell. Like not even cool in a "Uhhhhh, cool, you knit some Every Flavour Beans" way, but in an actual cool way. So I went to Becca's mom's favorite knitting social network, to see what I could find that I would knit. Here are some pictures! (If you are a knitter and a nerd, you can click on the photos for links to the patterns.)

Ron's sweater. It is awesome. His mom knit one for him and one for Harry. I don't get why anyone would think this sweater is crappy. Do you know how long it takes to knit a sweater? I mean, I'm not a witch, but I've only knit one sweater and that shit took like a month of doing nothing in my spare time but knitting. At least fake gratitude.

A screaming mandrake root. It is sweet and it will explode your head. Don't even try to hate it. You wish you had one. Make it yourself.

Hermione's hat. It's just a cool hat. I'd wear it. Of course, someone wrote the pattern for it. I'm going to knit that!


  1. Will you knit me a wedding ring?
    Because I wanna wife you up!!! In front of a Cinnabon!!! Don't walk away!!!


  3. Can you reattach this button for me? It popped off because of this weird boner I just had.

  4. Now, I want to learn how to knit. Can we have chat class?

  5. Oh, I fixed the links, you guys! Sorry about that! My AP Computer Science class from 1999 hasn't aged very well. Blogger can't read C++?

  6. Also, nightmare, I would LOVE to teach a chat class about knitting. The logistics would be a little tricky, but it could be fun.

    Duncan, I think the solution to your problem is obvious: Sweatpants.

    LBT, consider this feature's love for you requited.

    And Ench, you know I wouldn't play you like that in front of the Cinnabon. In front of Auntie Anne's, maybe.
