- You can participate by submitting any Harry-Potter related crocheted or knitted item you’ve made and that cannot yet be found on Leaky Crafts or in the Leaky Crafts Galleries. In other words, yes, things you’ve already made but haven’t sent to us can count!
- You can write (or make a video of) a tutorial for the item and earn your team extra points (see below). A tutorial must typically include the following:
- Supplies list
- Meaning of abbreviations (if applicable)
- Pattern or stencil to use (if applicable)
- Gauge (if applicable)
- Step-by-step pictures (not mandatory)
- Final product picture(s)
- There is no theme here. As long as the entry is HP-related, it can be entered in the contest. The only craft medias accepted are crochet and knitting.
- As of November 1st, you may submit your entries by the following means:
- By posting in the Contest thread in the Leaky Lounge;

The Craft-Along will remain open althrough November, so if you wish to discuss what you are making with others, be our guests and join us!
*whispers* If you join the CAL and knit or crochet, you'll personally be getting MyLeaky points for doing that too!!
On that note, a Harry Crafting to you all!
