The Harry Potter CAL!

Ever since we first met the Boy Who Lived back in 1997, the story of Harry Potter has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. I grew up with Harry Potter–I waited for my owl!–and I know that so many of you did, too.

To express my love for the Harry Potter series, I hosted a Harry Potter crochet along right here on the Two Hearts Crochet blog!

This CAL is made up of thirteen different squares worked in the C2C method featuring several beloved characters and/or objects from the series! 12 of the 13 squares consist of a 25×25 grid worked in the half double crochet stitch, while the last square consists of a 50×50 grid worked in the half double crochet stitch (this is the center square). If you want to learn the C2C method or just want to brush up on your skills, hop on over to the Crochet Crowd and view their amazing video tutorial!

      Hi Sharon!

      Due to the detailed nature of the Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes logo and the small size of the graphs, I don’t know that you’d be able to properly graph it out so that it looks the way it should.

      It could be done, but the graph would have be much larger than my 25×25 graphs.

    In one of your posts you mentioned possibly doing a banner for the top of the Harry Potter CAL. Is this still something you’re considering? I love the idea of s banner on top and adding 4 squares at the bottyto make the blanket a rectangle!

    What is the difference between the mini c2c and the regular? And would it be possible to put the “always” on top of the Deathly Hallows symbol?

    I know you said that all of your squares were made by doing a c2c with hdc but if I did c2c with dc would the pattern still come out okay?

      You’d have to play with the arrangemenet, probably! Try cutting out small squares of paper for the outside squares and a larger square (equal to four times the size of your smaller squares) for the center!

    Hi! Would you be able to do this with a Tunisian knit stitch crochet? I would assume so, but would it be too small?

      I have not used bobble stitch before, but I know there are some tutorials on YouTube you could check out! Then you’d do one bobble per block on the graph, working back and forth across the graph, rather than corner to corner. 😊

    Please help. On square #10 deathly hollows row 22 blocks add up to 23 instead of 22. How do I fix it?
    Also, the tutorials for C2C use dc but I want to use the hdc. I saw that you said to chain 4 instead of 6 (like with dc) but how do I go from there. Like with dc you do a dc in the 4th chain them one on the 5th and 6th then go from there. Where do you do the hdc”s in the chain of 4?
    Thank you so much for your help! The blanket looks beautiful!

    Hello! Thank you for all the time you have taken to make this all up. I absolutely love this CAL and will be making it for a friend. I was looking at your yarn chart and was wondering how do you figure up how much you need for some of the alternative squares. This is my first time doing c2c. I have made a regular graphgan but I love the c2c look. Thank you so much!

    Hi! This is a great pattern! I was looking at the yarn colors, and was wondering if anyone had made a list of suggested colors for “I love this yarn” from Hobby Lobby? Thanks!

    Approximately, how large is each square based on the instructions. I am needing to know for a crib sized blankets and how many of the squares I would need
    Thanks

    My squares seem to be leaning drastically to one side, is this normal? The images look fantastic! Except I worry that when I sew it together the blanket may be slanted.

    Can you tell me what size the deathly hallows square finishes to? My friends and I are making a squares afgan for a friend of ours before she leaves for college and I thought about using your pattern for my square. Each of us is supposed to make a square of something she likes, she loves HP.

      Absolutely! If you’re carrying your colors, some of the squares might have too many color changes for it to look as neat and tidy as it would with, say, two colors. But you can definitely go that route instead of C2C! ❤ ❤
