Picket Crochet

Pickett Crochet Pattern (Fantastic Beasts)

Hi there! Today I am sharing a crochet pattern for Pickett the Bowtruckle from the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film franchise.

I ended up having to make Pickett a bit larger then life-size, because of his very thin arms and legs. However, he would be perfect for a Newt Scamander costume/cosplay or just a very cute collectible.

If you love all things Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts, you would also like my Golden Snitch pattern.
