FO: Harry Potter PoA Gryffindor Scarf --> I'M DONE!!!!
I'm off to a pretty good start ...



After I took the photo, I totally did a Homer Simpson I was so into the movie I was watching, that I switched the MC and CC stripe pattern - instead of 3 CC, 5MC, 3 CC, I did 5CC, 3 MC, 5 MC. I'll probably regret this in the end, but will not frog it, but keep going. I think I'll do 12 more with the correct pattern, then end with the botched one, so at least the ends of the scarf will match!

Harry Potter Scarf
You are off to a really good start - can't wait to see it finished (I'm sure you can't wait to finish it!)

Great job.

I'm confused - it looks like its on circular needles - is it a scarf?

I think as long as you do the other side just like that - its going to look fine!

I'm not positive but I think all of the Harry Potter scarves are tubular.


Looks great.

Thanks Lady Voilet! I'm using Lion Wool-ease in cranberry and umm, I can't remember what the gold is called, but it's also Lion Wool-ease.

Hi becjo, yes it's a scarf, and is knitted on circular needles (it hides the yarn changes, and make is double-y snuggly and warm! You can check out the pattern here. I've also completed the CoS scarf, you can see it here.

wOw!!! impressive progress!!!
don't you just love nice cheap yarn that comes in the perfect colors? and the yarn itself doesn't look half bad either. i'm mixing the black wool-ease with the lemon jiffy for a hufflepuff hat. haven't gotten to the black yet, but i'm thinking it will actually be a little friendlier to knit with than the jiffy. it's not quite as fuzzy.
isn't it amazing how "mistakes" can turn out to be really neat details that no one will notice unless they're actually paying attention? your scarf will be unique. and it looks pretty dang amazing, too! :happydancing:
