Harry Potter Scarves by skadiblue Harry Potter Scarves by skadiblue
They are FINALLY done. I have been working on these suckers for about a year now. (Since last August). I basically knitted 15 scarves for the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince midnight showing (because I party every time a Harry Potter movie comes out). All but two of these are for friends. Each one took about 20 hours to make give or take a few hours (especially for my first ones because the neon yellow hufflepuff scarf you see there is my first ever knitting project, so it took a while). I did the math and I did over 300 hours of knitting. 0_o. I'm still in shock. Oh and for measurements each stripe is 4 inches long and 6 inches wide...you can do the math there...I'm too tired to think about it.
Here is the order as follows from left to right:
:bulletblack:Slytherin
:bulletblack:Slytherin (Yes there are two there, you just can't see one of them because I had to overlap all of them in order to get them to mostly fit on my bed.)
:bulletblack:Gryffindor
:bulletblack:Hufflepuff
:bulletblack:Durmstrang
:bulletblack:Ravenclaw (I did the movie versions because it was impossible to find bronze yarn)
:bulletblack:Gryffindor
:bulletblack:Beauxbatons
:bulletblack:Slytherin
:bulletblack:Gryffindor
:bulletblack:Ravenclaw
:bulletblack:Beauxbatons
:bulletblack:Ravenclaw
:bulletblack:(and hanging in the back are Slytherin and Hufflepuff).

You have no idea how excited I am that they are done.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I used the patterns from Charmed Knits by Alison Hansel. If it weren't for her I'd never be able to figure out how to do these. :)

I tried to learn how to knit, I never got the hang of it. I still have the stuff to do it. Maybe i'll try my hand at it again. The amount of scarves you made amazes me.

They look fantastic. I just learned to knit but perhaps I can make my own as well.

They are a really simple pattern; they just take a long time to do. Good luck!
