Some free patterns:
Debbie Macomber publishes a free pattern every now and then, limited time only.
Vickie Howell has a "free pattern of the month" thingy going on in her blog. Go to "make this" list on the left column of the blog, and you'll find all of them.
Knit on the net is another ezine.
Here's a list of Harry Potter Knitting Patterns... and The Leaky Cauldron's Harry Potter Crafts list
I'm going to bed.
P.S. I hate knitted/crocheted food...
