Formed to teach students how to defend themselves in a magical confrontation, the Dueling Club is presided over by Professor Lockhart and Professor Snape in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It is there that Harry and his fellow students learn he can speak Parseltongue. The scene takes place in the Great Hall, where the professors use a long table, covered in a beautiful runner showing the phases of the moon, as a stage for demonstrations.

Featuring the lunar motif from this gorgeous set piece, these fingerless mitts are knit back and forth in garter stitch from the bottom up. The stretchiness of the finished fabric and gentle shaping at the inside edge ensures a fit that works for a variety of knitters. The edges are mattress stitched together, leaving an opening for the thumb, and the prestrung beads create the moon motif centered down the front of the arm.

Fingerless mitts also need 1556 8/0 Miyuki beads.
