Knitting Pattern; Harry Potter Gryffindor hand warmers!


No matter what anyone says, Harry Potter is amazing, and hand warmers are pretty close to being so too. Therefore I have combined the two into a very easy knitting pattern for you all to try out. I made these for myself because I had a Gryffindor scarf for Christmas off the boyfriend, and wanted some hand warmers to go with. 

They're super quick to make, probably taking about an hour or two to make both depending on how fast a knitter you are. And they're easy too, just using knit and purl stitches. You can even change the colours if you wanted to, for those who are not so keen on Harry Potter, or perhaps want to use different colours for the other Hogwarts houses? (I'm thinking of trying this out for myself. A pair for each house would be cool).

So here's what they look like. (Excuse my non-skill at photography).


 

 
Materials

4mm (US 6) Knitting needles.
Red wool (Main Colour)
Yellow/Orange wool (Contrast Colour)

Pattern

It goes without saying, that you need to make two of these.

Using main colour cast on 36 stitches. If your knitting for a child then it will be less than this. I have average size hands for a twenty year old girl, and these fit me perfect. You may need to adjust yours to fit though.

Work in K2, P2 Rib for 5cm/2"

Knit 4 rows.

Change to contrast colour, and starting with knit, work 8 rows in st-st.

Change to main colour, and knit 4 rows.

Change to contrast colour, and starting with knit, work 8 rows in st-st.

Change to main colour and knit 4 rows.

Work in K2, P2 rib for about another 2.5cm/1"

Cast off knit-wise.

Now you should have this;



Putting Together

The longer rib piece is at the bottom, and goes on your wrist. Starting here, sew the piece together at both sides, then change to contrast colour and sew to the top of the first stripe. Then change back to main colour and sew the top piece of rib together. This was all I sewed for mine to fit me, but you can measure it on your hand and then sew to what feels comfortable to you.

Any questions, comments, or anything is most welcome. I'd love to hear what you think. Also, if anyone does ever make these then it would be amazing if you could take a picture and show me. Either post here, or email them to me at cerijones91@hotmail.co.uk if you don't have a livejournal account.

Much love, Harry Potter fans :)
