Harry Meets The Weasleys
Hand knit items aren't introduced to the Harry Potter world until Harry is at King's Cross Station, attempting to find Platform 9 3/4. It is there he sees the Weasleys for the first time, decked out in hand knits and headed for the train.
I love that the costume department brought hand knits into the movie with the Weasleys. This family has always represented comfort and home to Harry, much as knitted items do the very same for those of us who knit them. And so it is no surprise that as Harry meets the people who will become his emotional family, we are visually treated to the comfort of hand knits for the first time.
Over the next week or so, I'll share the sweaters and hats shown in the King's Cross scene, as worn by the Weasleys, and hope to find some patterns as well!
