Hogwart's House Shields Afghan

This is really colorful! I think it has the most colors in a tunisian afghan that I've ever done. (Images are clickable for enlargement).

This time I used a size H circular crochet hook. (It has a hook on each end but I just put a rubber band on the one end so the stitches would stay on the cable.)

This shows the front and the back.....

I trimmed it by doing half-double crochet in clusters of three, two and one. I had to change between rows to keep it flat. I used one main House color to represent each House.

The graph was from here...

You need to download the Pattern Viewer first which is located at the bottom of the page. There is also another Harry one on here.

As you can see, I did not crochet the banner around the shield. (With "Hogwarts" and "Never tickle a sleeping dragon" motto).(The graph was something like 18 pages and I decided to only make the middle).

I really loved doing this project!


  • Wow, your other stuff has been beautiful but yeah, the sheer amount of colour in this one makes it extra amazing!

  • Geocities is closed now. Is there any other way to get the pattern?

  • Hmmm,
    I even used the Wayback machine with that url and all the patterns and photos have been removed.

    I think you'll have to contact the owner of that site. I found this e-mail address over there...

    And a new site here

    So, I'd send her a request for the pattern.

    It looks like she charges a small fee now or something. I hope she still offers the Harry Potter pattern for you.

    Good Luck!!!!!
