Nerdy Knits: Potter Alphabet for Knitting

I have been knitting some Hogwarts inspired items lately, and wanted to incorporate lettering. I looked high and low, but, to my astonishment, I couldn't find anyone who had charted the lettering for my knitting use. Therefore, I have spent the last couple of days hunched over my laptop, recreating, as faithfully as possible, the iconic Potter font in knit chart form. I know my fellow crafty fans will make great use of it, so I wanted to freely give it to you.


With a few exceptions (M, W, etc...) I have tried to block them in a simple 15x15 grid. This might make smaller items impossible, but you can't get a whole lot smaller without losing too much detail. If there is demand, I can post individual letters, but the resolution will be the same. I hope you guys enjoy using these!

Update:
I have also posted a chart for a Twilight inspired font for the Twi-hards, and a Doctor Who font for you Whovians.

  3. I'm not great at tech stuff honestly, but you should be able to right click to save the image. Let me know if you still have troubles, and I'll run it past the hubby. He's the techie type.

  8. Did you make these by blocking out the actual potter letters? I was interested in making items and selling them (with your full permission of course) but I didn't want to be all over a copyright infringement if they were... lol.

  9. I sat down for about a day with the font and a grid I made and blocked these out by hand. You may use them to make items to sell, but I ask that you not try to sell the pattern itself, and please do link to this page if you list your items for sale online. Thanks!

  10. Of course! ANd thank you for the quick response. No I wouldn't sell the pattern itself, Mostly, I wanted to make a few scarves and I came across the letters and fell in love. I may only use them for gifts but I figured I would ask your permission first. And if they get sold online I will MOST DEFINITELY link to your site. Thank you again!
