Between Chaos and Sanity

Plain and simple tell it like it is


I am in a Harry Potter group on Ravelry (Hogwarts on Ravelry) and we were posting wands for house projects.  There wasn't any patterns for a crocheted one so I made this up.

Have fun making one!!

materials - any WW yarn in colors of your choice (might be fun to explain why you chose those colors! what’s your wand made of and why?) and a #2 pencil, small amount of stuffing.

  • Either ch2 or make a magic ring (however you prefer to begin) and do 8sc don’t join.
  • Do ~40 rows even.
  • slide a basic #2 pencil into the tube.
  • (sc2tog, sc in next 2) twice (6)
  • (sc2tog, sc) twice (4)
  • add a little stuffing to firm up the tip and make it safe in case kids get it!
  • sc2tog around to finish off.

Great idea... you could repurpose used chopsticks (washed) for the center also. :)

Never thought of that!  I was thinking pipe cleaners at first but then realized that it would be too floppy!
