Crochet / Knit / Weave: Select a pattern and follow it unerringly. When you turn in your item, please link the Ravelry pattern page to facilitate the verification process, as well as your personal project page.
Dye: Follow a specific dye regimen that you can cite via link. This may be an off-Ravelry page but must be accessible to anyone (no closed communities). Please remember to include photos of your process or a detailed description.
Spin: Attempt to duplicate a millspun yarn. We acknowledge that your handspun yarn will be superior to the commercial yarn you select to duplicate, and that many of the subtleties may be difficult to communicate. A sample of the commercial yarn is not required, but if you do have a sample, a side-by-side image is encouraged. Please link the Ravelry yarn page of the type you duplicate for comparison purposes.DADA ( ribbed toeless socks )Divination ( willow bag )Herbology

: Triwizard Tournament
Option 1: Preparedness! You are a competitor in the very first Triwizard Tournament. You stand ready to begin but don’t know yet what the organizers have in store for you. Craft something you would bring along to help confront the terrifying Tasks ahead and explain your strategy!
Option 2: Ingenuity! Imagine that you are on the first Triwizard Tournament organizing committee. Craft something to symbolize one of the Tasks you would propose for the eager young witches and wizards whose names popped out of the Goblet of Fire.
Option 3: Strength of Heart! Embrace the spirit of cooperation as a route to success. Craft something in honor of a person you consider to be a true HPKCHC Champion! Please look among the current House Cup members before casting a name into this Goblet of Fire. Is this person especially helpful to others? An inspiring crafter? Someone who overcomes personal challenges with the heart of a Champion? Please explain the reasons for your choice and consider earburning your Champion when you hand in your assignment. Make sure we all know what makes this person great!Muggle Studies
Option 1: Recreate a Muggle Doll using standard spells (knitting and crocheting). Your Muggle Doll must be representative of a human! Think miniature humans.
Option 2: Make something for a Muggle Doll using standard spells: clothes, accessories, home furnishings, etc.
Option 3: Make a “Doll-like” stuffed animal. This must be a biological entity of some sort - a sentient lifeform. Think stuffed octopus or teddy bear, NOT a truck or knit strawberry.
Option 4: Spin doll hair! Spinners, spin a fingering weight or lighter yarn for this class (16 or more WPI).Transfiguration
Option 1. Use scissors to steek! (Bonus points for pictures of scissors actually cutting your project) Please don’t think you need to make an adult sweater, though we’d love to see it!
Option 2. Use scissors to transfigure something into something else. (For example, buy a thrift store sweater, felt it, cut it up, and sew it into mittens. Cut up plastic bags and crochet them into a more durable market bag. Cut-up any add-ins (clothes, plastic bags, fabric etc.) and spin (perhaps with other fiber) into yarn. Non-ravelry crafts allowed for this option only, on a case by case basis.) Think up-cycling! helpful link. Buying fabric or using fabric you already own to sew is not what we are looking for and will not be allowed.
Option 3. Create a project inspired by scissors. (Sell it!)
Option 4. Spinners/Dyers~ Spin or dye multiple colors of yarn for the purposes of a (future) colorwork and/or steeked project, with a bonus for showing us the design/diagram. Ex. I want to make X sweater with colors A, B, & C in this snowflake pattern. Here are the 3 skeins I spun/dyed!
