In fact, this little crochet Golden Snitch pattern is what first inspired this blog. I realised that crochet should be easy and accessible to everyone, and this is the result. Sure, it took me a while after creating it to really get working on this blog, but we’re here now!
The wings are created out of felt, and sewn on securely. This takes any fussiness out of the pattern. If you can crochet an orb, you can crochet a snitch! It’s just the size of a real (‘real’) Golden Snitch.
Does it fly, you ask?

This little guy uses only scraps of yarn, and works up quickly, so is a great gift for any Harry Potter fan you may know. Let me know if you make one!

At village fetes they had a stall, piled sky-high with sweaters and booties in pastel acrylic. “Those local knitting ladies are my rivals,” […]
I last updated you on my granny hexagon crochet blanket (AKA The Big Ugly) almost two years ago. Since then, I’ve been chipping away at it… slowly. It sits on the end of our bed, and adds a lot of warmth, despite being unfinished. (I’m never going to iron our duvet cover – you’ll just […]
I knit a pair of Evil Eye Gloves for the March for our Lives, because how inspiring are these young people? Like the Pussy Hat, Evil Eye Gloves are a form of protest. And, they’re from the creator of the Pussy Hat too. As Krista Suh says on her website: The evil eye symbology goes way back. […]
