Basic Skills Necessary:

  • intarsia
  • cables
  • knitting in the round
  • picking up stitches

Pattern Description:

The first time we meet Professor McGonagall, she is a cat waiting all night to see Professor Dumbledore while the rest of the world celebrates. Some, probably Dedalus Diggle, celebrate by shooting wand sparks in the air, although the Muggles interpreted them as shooting stars. Although it was reported in Kent, chances are good that McGonagall was able to view a few as well.

5-7 skeins (820-1148 yds) of Green Tea Heather
1 skein (164 yds) of Basalt Heather
