Dark Mark (Right click and choose “Save Target As”)


Cast on 48 stiches in color A, then knit 48 stitches.

Using the pattern, knit the Dark Mark in stockinette stitches (1 row knit, 1 row purl). Make sure to add 5 stitches on the left side and 3 on the right. Knit 56 rows more rows in stockinette stitch in color A or follow the pattern the other way if you want the Dark Mark to appear on both sides of your bag.

Sew in the metallic thread by doing backstitches on the surface of the yarn, all around the Dark Mark(s).

Using a double strand of color A, knit an 8-stitch wide, 3-feet long strap. Don’t worry if it appears a little small, as it will stretch a lot when you will use the purse.

Seam up the body of your bag and sew in the strap, making sure to do a running stitch first, so that it will hold in place.

Sew in the lining and zipper, once again starting with a running stitch to hold them in place.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!

Also note that the tutorials, recipes and patterns found here have not been tested and that The Leaky Cauldron’s Harry Potter Crafts section is not responsible for any mistakes they may contain. If you do find something wrong in one of them, however, please e-mail us to let us know.
