Harry Dresden

Here's wizard hard-boiled detective Harry Dresden, created as a special custom order. I've never seen the Dresden Files TV show but really enjoyed the first two Jim Butcher Dresden files novels, Storm Front and Fool Moon, so this Harry was how I imagined him from the books.

This poor guy is always getting beaten up and putting up with a lot of really unglamorous crap in his line of work, but he can rest happy, knowing that he is wearing the best hat I have made to date. He originally had knitted headgear but it looked more like a sunhat, so I went back to the drawing board and sewed him a custom-fitted felt number. That's why he's smiling.


  1. OMG I want this! Nice work.

  2. Thanks Rebecca, so glad you like him. I will be knitting some more characters from the Dresden Files once I've cleared my current knit list.

  3. Are you willing to share your pattern for this? So cool!

    1. Oh I'm really sorry, I didn't write a pattern for him, I just sort of made him up as I went along! Glad you like him though.
