Molly Weasley’s Crochet Housecoat Sweater

As part of my search for the perfect pattern for Molly Weasley Crochet Sleeves, I came across Lisa at ReallyCrafty blog and how she has found a fun way to speed along her Charity Knitting.

Incidentally, Lisa is busy organizing a Charmed Knit Charity in her area to benefit Warm Woolies is a non-profit organization whose volunteers knit warm clothing for poverty-stricken children who would otherwise suffer from cold. The Warm Woolies mission is to provide the very neediest children with wool sweaters, vests, hats, mittens, and slippers.
Warm Woolies was selected by Alison Hansel author of Charmed Knits. According to Amazon’s Look Inside, she has a pattern for the Molly Weasley Housecoat – it is apparently knit not crochet. And I have not found any pictures on the web of one anyone has done.

Thus far, although I have found at least two patterns, although both are lovely, neither has the sleeve shape as the one seen in the movie from molly-croch-full-sleeve.jpg

    Hi again Wheat. Being an HP fanatic (I have the books, now am collecting the audio CDs, own the DVDs, etc.), I also have Charmed Knits. The sleeves are crochet in the CK pattern. Thus the pattern is labeled advanced, a concept I find amusing; just because a pattern combines both knit and crochet does NOT particularly make it advanced. Hansel’s book is nicely written, beginner patterns are labeled First Year, intermediate are called OWL (ordinary wizarding level) and advanced is called NEWT (nastily exhausting wizarding test). If you don’t own the book, I highly recommend thumbing through it at Borders, etc., her writing style really appeals to HP fans.

    I know most people either knit OR crochet, not both, but for me (who does do both) it is NOT advanced. I like your pic of her sweater.
