OFFICIAL Harry Potter Knitting Book
Harry Potter Knitting Magic is a deluxe guide to creating 28 authentic Harry Potter knits based on the iconic films.
Channel the magic of the Harry Potter films from the screen to your needles with the ultimate knitter’s guide to the Wizarding World. This book includes patterns for clothing, home projects, and keepsakes pulled straight from the movies.
A true fan must-have, this book also includes fun facts, original costume sketches, film stills, and other behind-the-scenes treasures. Harry Potter: Knitting Magic is sure to have fans everywhere summoning needles, conjuring yarn, and practicing their best knitting wizardry.
Let’s take a minute from the fun just to talk about copyright. Around the web you might see projects being posted about popular characters. In most cases these patterns are released without the permission of the network or company who owns the character. When patterns are made and sold without permission this is a copyright infringement.
Harry Potter Knitting Magic is a different story. Tanis has worked closely with Warner Brothers to get approval of each of the patterns in this book and all of the details inside. This is the OFFICIAL book of Harry Potter projects. This book is in no way infringing on any copyright laws.
