I’ve been a huge fan of the Perfect Pattern Parcel since it started, so I was very excited to get to join the tour this time around! We got the preview of the bundle, and I immediately gravitated to the Knight Hoodie. It’s been a wishlist pattern for awhile! The picky son agreed, and requested in Hufflepuff colors. A Hufflepuff Knight Hoodie? Rad.
His older sister, a serious Ravenclaw, had him tested on Pottermore a few years ago to place him in Hufflepuff. He and I started reading through the series last Spring. We’ve gotten to the fourth book, so he’s been happy to be a Hufflepuff and cheer on Cedric Diggory in the Triwizard Tournament. Cedric’s pretty much the most well known Hufflepuff after Helga herself, at least in the books. So this look was inspired by the yellow and black house colors.
“Can I put a badger on it? Can I put a big H? Or something else Harry Potter?” I asked him repeatedly for ways I could make this a fun look, other than just yellow and black. No, no, no. Ha, I fooled him. I did a retro-inspired striped ribbing with a lightning bolt interrupting the stripe at the back. The stripes are drawn with Crayola fabric markers to get a custom look.
Not that this pattern needs much added to make it fun! It’s a hoodie with armor and a knight’s helmet! But I did hide something else to make it his own…
This was a pretty cool little surprise, tacked with a long tail of serger thread to the inside of his left pocket… (I swear, I didn’t tell him to make that face!)
It’s the golden snitch Cedric caught against Harry in the 3rd book that his dad was so proud of. Cedric was a little embarrassed his dad carried on so as they all walked to the portkey to get to the Quidditch World Cup, especially since Harry had fallen during the match, but I think maybe he was still pretty happy with that win.
We just won’t talk about how, after he was killed in the graveyard, Cedric went on to become that sparkly vampire guy.
