You can now buy 'Harry Potter' crochet and knitting kits from Aldi
Muggles, rejoice! Aldi has released a Harry-Potter-inspired crochet kit to bring a little magic into your life.
Sure, the boy wizard's story might have ended in 2007 with the release of the Deathly Hallows, but his popularity hasn't waned over the years. So this really is perfect for all Potterheads, or even a younger person that you want to introduce to the franchise.
Now, you can quite literally use your muggle magic to transform the items below into your own six-inch Harry Potter doll.
The pack comes with the following items: yarn, plastic crochet hook, plastic daring needle, fibrefill, and step by step instructions
And the product description reads:
"New hobbies can often feel like the instruction are in parseltongue which can put us off giving things a go. You don't need to worry about that with this wonderful Harry Potter Crochet Kit with wonderfully simple instructions. Give something new a try and make your own magical Potter themed creations."
Retailing for just £3.99 ($4.85), this crochet kit is a steal, and if the reviews are anything to go by, it's been bringing magic into muggles' lives already.
One reviewer wrote: "I very much enjoyed making Harry. The instructions are concise but clear enough if you have some experience. I was pleased to have yarn left over rather than running out half way through a pattern piece, which sometimes happens with kits of this nature."
Whereas another, while a fan, warned that the design was more complicated than it looks: "Instructions are greatly improved and much more user-friendly comparing to previous Aldi crochet kits. That said, this is probably not suitable for beginners as the basic stitch guide doesn't look the easiest to follow. It wasn't a problem for me but I suspect those completely new to crochet will find it very frustrating [sic]."
The Harry Potter crochet kit is available to purchase in-store or online.
