Harry Potter Hogwarts House Trapped Bar Beanie

posted in: Patterns | 2

This is a quick and easy beanie pattern for people who love Harry Potter. There are a few techniques involved that are great for newbies such as color changing, decreases, and knitting in the round. My boyfriend hasn’t been knitting for long and was able to master it on his first try!


If you’re not a Harry Potter fan this is still a great pattern to use for sports teams or any of your favorite color combinations. It’s a one size fits most as stockinette stitches are fairly stretchy.

Feel free to use this pattern for personal use or for business.
