Mini Hippogriff

Practice that bowing, a hippogriff has appeared in the Forest.

“Once you had got over the first shock of seeing something that was half-horse, half-bird, you started to appreciate the Hippogriffs’ gleaming coats, changing smoothly from feather to hair, each of them a different colour: stormy grey, bronze, a pinkish roan, gleaming chestnut and inky black.”

Before the stitchcraft, though, a quick note first. This pattern is small and can be fiddly in places, especially around the beak. But there’s not much sewing or stuffing to do, and he’s easy to customise with different colours.

Still waiting for the pattern? Trot on down!

Mini House-Elf

Get your mismatched socks out, here comes a free elf.

“Dobby now handed Harry a small package, which turned out to be – socks.

‘Dobby is making them himself, sir!’ the elf said happily. ‘He is buying the wool out of his wages, sir!’

The left sock was bright red, and had a pattern of broomsticks upon it; the right sock was green, with a pattern of Snitches.”

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Before the stitchcraft, though, a little note first. This pattern is small and can be fiddly in places. But there’s not much sewing or stuffing to do, he’s quite fast to make, and he’s easy to customise with different colours.

Mini Niffler

Hide all the shiny objects, it’s time to crochet a niffler.

“… he found himself looking at a number of fluffy black creatures with long snouts. Their front paws were curiously flat, like spades, and they were blinking up at the class, looking politely puzzled at all the attention.”

J.K. ROWLING, HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE

Before the stitchcraft, though, a little bad news first. This pattern is small and fiddly in places, there’s no pouch part, and there’s black yarn involved. But, good news, there’s not much sewing or stuffing to do (those are my least favourite parts), and there’s a tail!

Still waiting for the pattern? Let’s niffle to it, then.

Owl Pattern

These little roosting owls are made with the least amount of sewing I could possibly get away with. Sitting at about 2.5 inches tall, they’re quite quick to make, and are easy to customise using your own colours. But they’re not much for delivering letters, they’d rather watch you work.
