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!

Golden snitch free Harry Potter Crochet Pattern

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!
