Tiny Harry Potter doesn't have his robes yet because he is currently at Uncle Vernon's house. He only has his wand for his homework, I think Hogwarts allows that. Ok, here is the pattern! I'm so proud I finally finished it, but enough with the talking. Action!
To us muggle knitters and crocheters, Tiny Potter is in front of some yarn; however he is actually standing in front of the Tiny Leaky Cauldron.
Isn't he tiny? It's a wonder why I call him "Tiny Potter"...
Look at that tiny wand though!
He is apparently practicing some tiny levitation on a tiny ball of yarn.
~Fingering-weight yarn in 4 different colors:
Scraps of Black: Hair
Brown: Shirt and Arms
Scraps of Dark Pink, Pink, or Red: Mouth
~Sewing thread in black: Eyes and Glasses
~Size 0 Double-Pointed Knitting Needles (2 mm)
~Tiny amount of stuffing
~A tapestry needle
~A sewing needle
If you use the recommended yarn and needles,
the finished size will be about a little over than 1''.
None! Just make sure you knit tight enough so the stuffing won't poke through.
This is because there are certain techniques (that are however simple) when putting the features in.

Body: Rnd#1: (Work as icord) [Kfb] 4 times (8 sts)
Distribute the sts onto 3 needles and join in a round.
Rnd#2: K3, Kfb, K4 (9 sts)
Switch to brown.
Switch to skin color.
Rnd#7: [K2tog, k1] 3 times (6 sts)
Rnd#8: [Kfb, k1] 3 times (9 sts)
Stuff! Because the piece is small, use a knitting needle or crochet hook to poke the stuffing in.
Rnd#12: [K2tog, k1] 3 times (6 sts)
Cut the yarn, and pull it tightly through the sts with your tapestry needle.
Eyes: With your black sewing thread, embroider the eyes. Place them in the middle of the head about a knit at and a half apart.
Glasses: Also using your black sewing thread, embroider the glasses by surrounding each eye with the backstitch and using on long st to connect both parts of the glasses together.
Mouth: With your dark pink or red yarn, embroider the mouth using 1 stitch (the width of a knit st) just below the glasses.
Hair: With your black yarn, embroider the hair. If you want, you could make it messy on purpose! After all, Harry Potter did have messy hair.
Arms: With shirt color, CO 2 sts onto 1 needle to knit an icord. Knit for 10 rows. (If you can crochet, you can also just chain 10.) Cut the yarn, and pull it tightly through the sts with your tapestry needle. Keeping the tapestry needle in your work, pull it though the body at the top of the shirt. Make sure to have an even amount of yarn stick through the body, so it looks like two arms. After that, weave in the loose ends.
Hands: After assembling the arms, with your skin color yarn, embroider the hands by continuously wrapping the yarn around each of the ends of the arms. Weave in the loose ends.
Wand: With brown, make a slip knot onto one needle, and knit it normally. Slip the stitch off the needle. Continue to do this 6 more times. (Or, if you crochet, you can make a slip knot, and chain 6.)
Finishing: With the loose ends of the wand and arms, attach the wand to one of the arms using small, hidden stitches. Weave in any of the other loose ends, too. You're finished!
