Harry Potter knitted doll
Yes, OK, I know that I am going to be barred from the common room for a few days for knitting a Gryffindor. But if it makes you feel any better, he has gone off to a new home with Draco and will probably be bullied mercilessly.
Harry Potter was a custom order for one of my wonderful Etsy customers but I am currently working on the pattern so you can knit him and Draco for yourselves.
His glasses are made out of twisted fuse wire and he's wearing a school jumper and robes with Gryffindor house colour trims. Just like the real Harry, it's impossible to make his hair stay neatly down, thanks to a sprinkling of short, thick, mohair chunky wool sprinkled in among the double knitting yarn...
