Match to needle
Type

Transfiguration

Effect

Turns a match into a needle

"You'll be starting small, just matches into needles and that sort of thing—"
Percy Weasley[src]

This spell was used to transform a match into a needle[1]. It is one of the simplest transfiguration spells[2].

Nature and teaching

Due to its being the simplest spell of transfiguration, this is the first spell taught in transfiguration class (after they take many complicated notes)[1].

It seems, however, that even beginning students have trouble with it; by the end of their first lesson, only Hermione Granger had made a substantial improvement to her match, and Professor McGonagall proudly showed the class how it had turned silver and was rather pointy[1]. She later gave the class "a pile of homework", presumably on the subject of this spell[1].
