The Golden Snitch is the most valuable ball in the game of Quidditch—worth 150 points to the Seeker who catches it. Concept artists went through many drafts to get the Golden Snitch just right for the films. Moth wings and fish fins were some of the first concepts for the wings, while crustacean and shell looks were considered for the ball. Eventually, an Art Nouveau theme was chosen for the ball with delicate, feathering wings that can fold into the ball when not in flight.

Show your sporting spirit with Golden Snitch socks and mittens. The socks are worked in the round from the cuff down, beginning with a 2 x 2 twisted rib. Once the cuff is complete, the easy stranded colorwork chart is worked over the leg. An afterthought heel is made to interrupt the colorwork as little as possible and can be worked during the leg or after the toe has been grafted.

The stranded colorwork mittens are worked from the bottom up in the round beginning with a twisted rib cuff. Spiraling decreases bring the top to a close, while a solid-colored afterthought thumb is worked at the end to maintain the colorwork pattern in the body of the mitten.

If making both the mittens and the socks, 2 hanks of the MC and 1 hank each of CC1 and CC2 is needed.
