need:

I used white/silver in picture.

This is my own design and in no way endorsed by the author or any shape and form of Harry Potter.This is my own copyrighted pattern. Please contact me for useage of the pattern.

Golden Ball:

Rnd 1: Ch 3, 15 dc in ring. Join to 3rd ch of beg. ch 3. (16 sts).
Rnd 2: Ch 3, dc in same stitch. 2dc in each stitch around. slip stitch in 3rd chain of beg. ch 3. (32 sts).

Rnd 3: Ch 3, dc in same st. *dc in next stitch, 2 dc in next. Rep * to end. slip st in 3rd ch of beg. ch 3. (48 sts).

Rnd 4: Chain stitches til about 12-13 inches long. Sc in same chain as first one(to make a loop). SC around ball and slip stitch to first ch. Fasten off.

Wings: with either silver/silver or white/silver
(you will attach thread 15 ch's up on both sides from the long loop area to attach wings.)

Attach thread and chain 13.
Sc in 3rd ch from hook til end. SC into ball in next ch from attached.(you will be working toward the loop area when attaching to ball).
ch 1, turn, HDC in each chain up to 1 chain before the ch 3 group(picot)of first row.
Ch 3, turn, and sc in same area as ch 3 start and to the end of wing. (do not attach ball at this time).
ch 1, turn, hdc in next 7 chs, ch 3, and sc in base of ch 3 and to end of wing. 2 HDC in end of wing and then attach wing to ball 3 chs below 2nd attachment. (so that there is 2 chs between the second attachment and the third). Fasten off.

Do same for second wing.


Finishing::

use a piece of cardboard 3 1/2" to 4 1/2" long and wroap white 10-20 times and cut on one end.set aside. Then wrap gold 5-10 times and cut on end.
Put thread together and slip knot in center of loop on bookmark. Cut ends even, and weave in pesky ends.

This is so cool. I found your log while perusing Ravelry :)

Can hardly wait until my little bookworms are ready to read HP and understand what a Snitch bookmark is... :)
