The Harry Potter phenomenon and the popularity of knitting - a magical combination.

An online search combining Harry Potter and knitting yields over a million results. This unique book features 30 patterns that celebrate popular Harry Potter characters and places. Knitters can create initial sweaters for Harry, Ron, Fred, and George; sweaters, scarves, mittens, hats, and socks in the house colors of Hogwarts; themed items such as cloaks, robes, stuffed toys, and a blanket; and more. A bonus craft project lets readers "magically" hold a work in progress. Easy-to-follow patterns and color photos showing the finished projects inspire both beginners and experienced knitters.
