This was the first ever month for the Book n’ Hook Club, a book club made for crocheters!

I ended up getting a buuunch of Harry potter characters made, I completed everyone I wanted to except for Snape :/

I haven’t made patterns for these guys yet, but it’s something I’m definitely interested in if you would like them! Make sure to let me know by commenting on the YouTube video or below!
