Gothic—a style of architecture from the high and late medieval period of European history—is what people probably most often envision when they think of the Hogwarts castle. This garment was inspired by Gothic-style stained-glass windows, such as might be found in the Great Hall at Hogwarts, and the little church in Harry Potter’s ancestral village of Godric’s Hollow. The name of the pattern, ‘Tracery’, is the term used for the stonework sections which contain the glass of Gothic windows.
