Harry Potter Time-Turner

time turner light

I came up with this little piece at home while trying to think of a small supplemental birthday gift for my friend’s upcoming birthday. I tried to make it look as much like the movie one as possible in crochet, but there were too many little moving parts in the real ones.

Hourglass:

with beige, ch 12, join with sl st, being careful not to twist, ch 1

Round 1: sc in each ch around, join with sl st, ch1 (12)

Round 2: sc in each st around, join with sl st, ch1 (12)

Round 3: sc in each st around, join with sl st, ch1 (12)

Round 4: *sc in next 2 sts, sc dec*, repeat from * around, join with sl st, ch1 (9)

Round 5: *sc, sc dec*, repeat from * around, join with sl st, ch1 (6)

Round 6: sc dec three times, join with sl st, ch1 (3)

Round 7: 2 sc in each st around, join with sl st, ch1 (6)

Round 8: *sc, 2 sc in next st*, repeat from * around, join with sl st, ch1 (9)

Round 9: *2 sc, 2 sc in next st*, repeat from * around, join with sl st, ch1 (12)

Round 10: sc in each st around, join with sl st, ch1 (12)

Round 11: sc in each st around, join with sl st, ch1 (12)

fasten off, leaving a long enough tail for sewing

stuff both sides of hourglass with small amount of stuffing and sew ends together.

Casing (make 2):

 with yellow, ch 3

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and next st, ch 1, turn (2)

Row 2: 2 sc in each sc, ch 1, turn (4)

Row 3: 2 sc in first st, sc in next 2 sts, 3 sc in last st, ch 1, turn (7)

Row 4: 2 sc in first st, sc in next 5 sts, 3 sc in last st, ch 1, turn (10)

Row 5: 2 sc in first st, sc in next 8 sts, 2 sc in last st, ch 1, turn (12)

Row 6: 2 sc in first st, sc in next 10 sts, 2 sc in last st, ch 1, turn (14)

Row 7: 2 sc in first st, sc in next 12 sts, 2 sc in last st, ch 10, turn upside down (16)

Row 7.5: sc in bottom loop of 2nd ch from hook, sc in each st across and join at main piece. fasten off.

 Finish by sewing loose ends of casings to ends of hourglass.
