If you’re looking for some Harry Potter-themed crafts to comfort yourself now that the last movie is out, look no further! Lion Brand has some fun, super-easy tutorials: a knit Capelet of Invisibility, a crocheted Resurrection Stone ring, and a yarn Elder Wand. They recommend using their shimmery Vanna’s Glamour yarn, which will give everything a lovely glow.
The Lion Brand newsletter gives some background on the capelet:
“Combining her love of yarncrafts with her love of Harry Potter, Michelle Urcuyo, manager of the Lion Brand Yarn Studio retail store & education center in New York City, designed the Capelet of Invisibility. She said, ‘For all of us who are fans of the books, we know that there’s the world that opens up inside your head as you read and no two visions are alike. My version of the invisibility cloak is not the same as the one in the book but it pays homage to what I see in my mind’s eye each time I return to Hogwarts.'”
(Just a heads-up: to access the patterns, you need to set up a free account with Lion Brand.)
