Step 1: Getting Started

Do you have a Hogwarts fan that could use some warm hands? How about a Harry Potter buff needing relief from the chilly fall weather? I have just the thing to keep those hands warm and spirits high. Crochet a pair of Gryffindor Hand Warmers to show off your house pride and support your favorite Quidditch team. Our free crochet pattern is simple and easy to work up and comes together in a nice tight pair of hand warmers. I designed this pattern to fit an adult hand, size medium to large. (They do fit my husband’s very large hands, although they are very tight on him.)

I had so much fun creating these hand warmers because first, I love Harry Potter, Hogwarts and wish I was a Gryffindor House member. And second, I loved how the bold red and gold stripes naturally formed from the Red Heart Team Spirit Yarn. I may have to follow it up with slippers. (We’ll see!) I would love your feedback on this pattern – so feel free to contact me via email or connect with us on Facebook.
