Harry’s first visit to Diagon Alley is the moment where everything he has been told by Hagrid really comes to life, and as a reader it is what really bought the wizarding world to life for me. I loved the idea that even though I did not receive my Hogwarts letter, the possibility of this hidden world still existed. Fast-forward several years and I finally get to visit Diagon Alley at Universal Studios on my Honeymoon, making this pattern doubly special to me.

This simple knit and purl pattern is easy and repetitive to knit and is reminiscent, not only of the brick wall behind the Leaky Cauldron, but also of the cobbled and uneven streets. Slip stitches throughout help add to the squishy texture and pull everything a little…. well, diagonal.
