I think burgundy but Hubby says rich red lol. It's so hard to tell from the pics online.

Just my 2 worth.. the Red (rather than the burgandy) looks closer to the Gryffindor colours on my screen.

Hope this helps...

Thanks for your opinion! I was leaning towards burgundy but now I'm thinking the other

My hubby and I both like the red for Gryffindor. :cheering:

I don't know..I think it depends on what movie you are trying to go for. I lately have been trying to find something a little brighter than burgendy and try to stay away from the really vibrant reds. I also try to find more of a gold colour than yellow. But I am hard core HP...so I am super picky!

I don't think that red looks very bright, at least in the picture. I like a brick red for Gryffindor. :cheering:

Thanks for your help ladies! I'm now leaning more towards the rich red, the burgundy seems almost too purple. ::sigh:: I guess it doesn't matter *that* much :teehee: I found a picture of the rich red knitted into a cap I would post that as a better picture but I don't know if we can link to someone elses photo? I found it in a blog.

I am going to say that the red looks better. But I would also look on Knit Picks I just finished a scarf using yarn from thier site and they have some pretty accurate colors.

Definitely the first one! The second one seems too.. purple-y. Almost like a deep beet colour.
