Harry Potter Baby Set - Hat, Bib & Diaper Cover

My cousin, Brandi, is having "A Muggle Baby Shower" this weekend so I thought something Harry Potter was certainly fitting to make for their baby.

Being a huge Harry Potter fan, this was fun to make in the House of Griffindor colors.  Of course, I had to appliqué Harry's glasses and scar onto the Bib.

This was fun and fairly quick to make.  I used worsted weight yarn and a 6.0mm hook.  I used less than half a skein of each color.

Harry Potter Set - Hat, Bib & Diaper Cover

I made 2 Hats:  1 newborn size and the other 3-6 month size:

The Diaper Cover is 0-6 months size:

And, the cute Bib with appliqués:

Super cute set for any little Muggle to wear; for boys just omit the bow from the Hat:
