We have made it to the final round of the dueling club! Congratulations to our finalists!
Ravenclaw Emma Wigworthy and Hufflepuff Draco Firewalker will be dueling in the final round of the hat bracket. Slytherin Lily of Flitwick will face Slytherin Violette Black in the grand finale of the sock bracket.
Here are the materials each of you will require:
Hat Bracket (Knitting)
The knit hat will require a skein (less than 400 yards) of fingering weight yarn (yes, fingering weight … in the hat bracket). I believe you can do it with approximately 200 yards, but you might want to have extra on hand, just in case. You will also be using US 3 (3.25 mm – DPNs and/or 16” circular) knitting needles, or size to obtain gauge. Tools include a yarn needle and stitch marker. The gauge is listed as 32 stitches and 48 rows is 4” in stockinette stitch on US 3 needles. However, you can change the size of your hat by adding or removing pattern repeats.
The sock knitters will require approximately 450 yards of fingering weight sock yarn (closer to 600 yards for larger sizes). You will also be using US 0 (2.0 mm) double pointed needles (or size needed for gauge – set of five needles) and/or a US 0 (2.0 mm) circular needle, if you prefer magic loop. You will also need a yarn needle and stitch markers. The gauge is listed as 40 stitches and 58 rows is 4” in stockinette stitch on US 0 needles.
Once again, you will have to contact your partner to get their address, sizing information and color preferences.
The patterns will be posted on the HSKS6 blog THIS Friday, December 5th at noon CST. Best of luck to all of our finalists!
