Ignotus Peverell's Cloak~ from The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits


Have you heard about the newest knitting special issue from Interweave? 
The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits is here.


This publication is created by the same wonderful team that produces Jane Austen Knits, and I am truly honored to be a part of it. My pattern, Ignotus Peverell's Cloak, was inspired by our daughter's fascination with the Cloak of Invisibility. 


 I set out to create a garment reminiscent of this unassuming piece of fabric with great magical powers. The blend of alpaca and silk yarn creates a wonderfully fluid drape, and its name, Metalico, aptly describes its seemingly metallurgical shimmer, which is a key component of this design.


With a nod to Ignotus Peverell's thirteenth-century roots, the unisex cloak mimics chain mail, and is suitable for an advanced beginning knitter. The print edition will be available in mid-August, and I am hoping to sit down with a lovely cup of tea to and read it leisurely when it arrives. (Or, maybe I will just tear it open right there in the post office... much more likely!)
