Originally published for Dragonfly Fibers’ Club Dragonfly in 2017, this slip stitch colorwork cowl with a knitted-in picot hem is now available to all. Cowl uses 1 hank of each color and is part of a 6 designer series available over the course of a year.

Inspired by the house colors of Harry Potter’s house, Gryffindor, Felix Felicis, also called “Liquid Luck”, is a magical potion that makes the drinker lucky for a period of time, during which everything they attempt will be successful.

It is meant to be used sparingly, however, as it causes giddiness, recklessness, and dangerous overconfidence if taken in excess. Felix is highly toxic in large quantities and is also a banned substance in all organised competitions, such as Quidditch, along with all other methods of cheating. It is very difficult to make, disastrous if made wrong, and requires six months to stew before it is ready to be consumed.
