February - Winter Puzzle

Post by Kim Alting » Thu Feb 01, 2018 9:58 pm

"Hey, look – Harry’s got a Weasley jumper, too!"
Fred and George were wearing blue jumpers, one with a large yellow F on it, the other with a large yellow G.
"Harry’s is better than ours, though," said Fred, holding up Harry’s jumper. "She obviously makes more of an effort if you’re not family."
"Why aren’t you wearing yours, Ron?" George demanded. "Come on, get it on, they’re lovely and warm."
"I hate maroon," Ron moaned half-heartedly as he pulled it over his head.
"You haven’t got a letter on yours," George observed, "I suppose she thinks you don’t forget your name. But we’re not stupid – we know we’re called Gred and Forge."

~ Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Mrs. Weasley has a tradition where she will knit sweaters for each of her immediate family members and her friends with the initial of their first name on some. However, this year she has decided to expand upon her works of art and create more personal sweaters: ones with her families favourite animals on them. Seeing as everyones animals would be different, Mrs. Weasley first mapped out her designs on knitting squares beforehand. However, they seem to have gone missing, and before you ask, no, it wasn't the twins. Can you help her recreate her missing pattern before it is too late?
Your task, should you chose to accept it, is to recreate Mrs. Weasley's knitting pattern using the following template, clues, and table. Each clue will give you one of four colours (either directly or which can be found by using the provided table) for specific squares on the template which you then must colour in with the colour that you have found should belong there. Submissions must include both the filled out template and the answers to each clue.

Complete the following winter puzzle for 40 hoots. Send the complete grid to me before February 28th 12pm HOL time.
