Severus Snape is an often disliked and more often misunderstood character from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter Series. Snape, as he is often simply referred to, is a very complex character that is woven into every facet of the story – both the good and the bad. This particular stitch pattern reminded me of the competing sides that Snape glides through effortlessly while at the same time, complimenting each other and creating a depth of fabric.
