The Sorting Hat, also known as the Hogwarts Sorting Hat was a patched, dirty and frayed old hat that was used in the Sorting Ceremony at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry every year. There was a rip near the brim of the hat, with which it could talk and sing. Before each new student is Sorted into a House the hat will sing a song and bow to each table.
Behind the scenesEdit
- The Hat has a chapter named after it, the one in which Harry and his contemporaries are Sorted into their respective Houses.
