Harry Potter Dishcloth design** Updated** 6/21

June 16, 2007

Hey folks, the winner of the kitchen cotton is Jan (random number generator picked #3)… so Jan email me (I commented on your blog) with your addy!

I’m going to actually post the pattern here since I’ve been receiving requests for it..

word of warning.. I knit only 1 of these so far, and I wrote the pattern up while I was knitting… so I cannot be certain of any errors at this point. If something doesn’t seem right, please contact me! 🙂

    I am a blind knitter and can only use looms. I was wondering if it would be possible to get your permission to convert the Golden Snitch pattern to looms?

    Just did this. Not sure this is an error, but in the first section, last section, and section separating the snitch from the HP, you might want to say “Row 1 K Across; Row 2 MB, P across, MB” etc. You could end up with garter instead of stockinette. Just a suggestion. Love this pattern, though; thanks for sharing it!

    I don’t know if you had a chance to answer to the above post or not, but as Constance Vigilance is no longer on staff for the crafty witches, I would appreciate it if you could e-mail your reply at

    I don’t know if you are aware of what we do in the Leaky Cauldon’s craft section, but in case you don’t, you can visit us here. Basically, we’re aiming at being a one-stop shop for everyone’s Harry Potter Crafts-related needs.

    We post all kinds of tutorials and pictures there, and would very much like to post the tutorial and pictures of your Harry Potter dishcloths there. We would identify the pictures and tutorials as having been created by you, not to mention there are also 2 long paragraphs on the front page of the crafts section explaining visitors that they should use the patterns they see on the website for their personal use and not to sell them, as the designers are the only ones who own the copyrights to those items. There is also a copyright sign right by your name on the page of a particular item. Last but not least, you will notice that the credits at the bottom of each crafts mentions a source, so in your case, it would say that your tutorial was taken with permission from (we would actually include a link to your website).

    The Leaky Cauldron easily gets between 70,000 and 1,000,000 hits per month. We believe letting us add your patterns and pictures there would increase your visibility too. And of course, it would enable thousands of crafters all around the world to make wonderful crafts like yours!

    Hoping to post your creations soon!

    P.S.: Don’t forget to e-mail us back at And sorry we didn’t e-mail you directly… It was simply impossible for us to find your e-mail address anywhere on your blog. We are truly sorry if we overlooked it. Feel free to delete the above two comments once you have replied to us!

    And for anyone else reading this, you can submit your HP crafts to us too!

    Hi! We crafty witches at the Leaky Cauldron love your dishcloths! Would it be ok if we posted your tutorial in our crafts section with full credit to you? Please let me know at constancevigilance at yahoo dot com

    Thank you for this pattern! I’ve given it a shot and the only error I had was when I accidentally reversed the pattern. But that’s a user error, my bad, haha! Otherwise, it’s just gorgeous and I plan to make another with all the steps followed correctly this time!

    I knitted the HP cloth yesterday, in burgandy. I’m amazed at how well the letters and the snitch show up on the stockinette background. Nice job mapping out the pattern. Thanks! lkm

    MB = make border. In this pattern you knit 4 stitches at the beginning and end of each row.

    CO = cast on

    Hope this helps!

    Great pattern, I’m adding it to my list.
