Potter Pattern Done!

Eighty nine pages later, I have finally come up with a pattern for the Ron Weasley Blanket. I put a tremendous number of photos into it to make it a decent attempt at explaining how to make it and I'm afraid the pattern is quite lengthy.

Here is a link to check out the monstrosity that is The Ron Weasley Blanket Pattern.

I've never written a pattern before so I'm sure it's got errors but I figured I'd have a go at it since no one has come up with a detailed pattern for this popular project yet.

If anyone does decide to use this pattern, I would love to see pictures!

  1. I am in utter awe! I cannot imagine the number of hours invested in this project... but I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Well done, well done.

  2. I think I might make something wonderful with this pattern. I'm wondering about making a "mini" version that involves making 4" squares instead of 7" squares and using leftovers from other projects. We'll see.

    I love the fact that someone sat down and figured this out :)

  4. Oh wow, your blanket is amazing! I saw the movie prop when the exhibition opened in Sydney recently and was absolutely transfixed. I'm thinking of making a more personalised version for myself :)

  5. Oh my goodness, I made the mistake of looking at this when my daughter was nearby. She of COURSE wants it. I told her I would consider making it a "part time project" -- I do love it too! What a great pattern with so much detail! Thank you for sharing it!

  6. Wow! This is so amazing. Thanks for making up a pattern and doing all the detective work involved!

    I'm a new knitter, so the idea of getting to work on one 7" square at a time seems less stressful than knitting a blanket. This might become my long term project. Thanks for sharing!

  9. omg...this is amazing!!! I will definitely attempt this for my son. He will be over the moon for it so of course I cannot tell him I am making it. He is now 23 ... maybe I will get it done by the time he is 30 ;0)
    Thank you so much for sharing all of your awesome work.

  10. You've done a beautiful job on this. I was trying to freeze frame the movies to create one similar when I decided to see if it was already attempted. Can you please tell me which are "firm" squares (ie, based on actual visuals from the movies) and which are "soft" squares (ie: you're take on what frugal Molly would have created from bits and bobs of left-over wool). I've got most of the wool and have started some of the squares but may have difficulty getting all of the colors.
    Cheers!
