Original Pattern – Golden Snitch

A crochet golden snitch pattern was the first crochet pattern I ever wrote up. And you can get it here!

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.

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!

Baby Aran Sweater

Baby Aran Sweater

When my niece was little (well, littler), my sister dressed her in a sweet baby Aran sweater. It was densely cabled and handknit by some “local knitting ladies” for the charity shop. At village fetes they had a stall, piled sky-high with sweaters and booties in pastel acrylic. “Those local knitting ladies are my rivals,” […]

The Big Ugly: My Granny Hexagon Crochet Blanket

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 […]

Evil Eye Gloves for March for our Lives

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. […]
