Make Your Own Snape

Make Your Own Snape

If like us, you were very sad to hear about the passing of Alan Rickman, why not pay tribute to one of his most-loved roles by crocheting yourself a mini Snape from Harry Potter.

This version was crocheted by Ravelry user kimberdesu and was adapted from the Little Emo amigurumi pattern by Michelle McLaughlin. Find the original pattern (written in US terms) here or follow our version below which has been translated into UK terms.
