Need Help With HP Scarf
I'm beginning the HP Scarf http://knit.atypically.net/scarves/a.../pattern.shtml

And as I understand it, I'm suppose to be knitting a tube? Because doesn't a Straight Stockinette Stitch form a Purl side on the wrong side? And I wanted the scarf to result stockinette stitch on both side when I wear it.

Please help me understand this. Many thanks.

When you knit in the round you don't need to purl. Knitting alone will make it all stockinette stitch.

It looks to me like you are knitting in the round, so all the purls will be inside the tube and when you cast off and flatten out the tube there will be stockinette on both sides.

You are knitting in the round. I made this last year and it seemed the knitting went on forever!

Good luck.

I knitting this on my sweater machine, and the seamed it up the back. There was no way I was hand knitting it, because I am lazy, and we needed them for the GOF premiere and I started them like 3 days before hand. Not a planner.

About Knitting In the Round
Thank you all for clarifying.

However while checking websites and noticing it was knitting on circular needles round and round, How do you join the ends?

Or does it automatically do that once you start knitting round and round without stopping?

Also would the bind off be the same?

The definitive source for techniques is Amy's videos. Click on the "Advanced Techniques" tab above.

OT: which Hogwarts house colors are you using?

I'm knitting a Harry Potter scarf in burgundy and yellow-gold. I'm not knitting it on circular needles, just two straight ones. I like what I've done so far...

Hi thanks, I did have a look at Amy's videos, but how do you join the round so that it is stockinette stitch on both sides?
Does anyone know website or have photos of the beginning process then the end process?

If I use 4 dpns or a circular needle and simply knit all th way around and around will that be joining the round?
