Want to see the first crochet pattern I ever wrote up? Here it is!
This little Golden Snitch 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?
Of course it does! My team at work used this Golden Snitch as a “talking stick” in meetings. We’d update, then toss it at the next person to speak, cheering if they snatched it out of the air, laughing if it fell to the ground.
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!

Yep, I block my socks! Not every time I wear them, but when they’re fresh off the needles. Before now, I’ve just patted them out onto a towel, but now I’ve made myself a couple of pairs of home made sock blockers. I’ve spent a bit of time drooling over beautiful sock blockers on Etsy […]
