On the Needles: The Harry Potter Scarf

Say it Rah-shay, yaRRns By Oct 03, 2014 No Comments

A while back my nephew asked me to make him a Harry Potter scarf. I had just started knitting on a regular basis and was a little intimidated by the pattern so I was a horrible aunt and blew him off. I would promise a scarf and then find myself working on one of the eleventy billion other projects I had going on. Now that I feel more comfortable with sticks, I dug out the yarn I had bought for his project and got started.


Using a pattern from the blog The Come and Go Room, I started and frogged his scarf THREE times. She calls for a knit, purl but my addled brain couldn’t keep my knit stitches and purl stitches straight. I did a straight up stockingnette stitch and so far it’s coming out well. It’s going to be huge; I had to cast on 100 stitches so my poor nephew may be swamped in his scarf!

I found a copy of the book, Charmed Knits, Projects for Fans of Harry Potter and found some House socks to match the house scarf.
