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

Very nice. :3 I learned how to knit for that very reason. I've been trying to figure out how other people do them. How long are they? And how many stitches do you do? Also how long do they take you? Mine are almost 25,000, 9.75 feet (with fringe), and generally take about 2-3 days. Did you know how to knit berfore you did these? They look really nice.

***Aslo, Ravenclaw traditional colors are blue and bronze. Not blue and sliver, for whatever reason they changed it in the movies. :3 I'm a Ravenclaw, and as tacky as bronze and blue are, I like JK Rowling's original intentions over the movies.

Thank you! I learned how to knit to do these.

These ones are 12.5 inches long (including fringe) and the stitches are roughly 19,800. I knitted in the round with size 8 needles. Mine take me about 15 hours to do, depending on how tired I am.

I also know that Ravenclaw's traditional colors are bronze and blue, however I don't know if you realize but it is very difficult to find blue and bronze yarn that work well together that are the same yarn weight and everything. So I decided to go with blue and silver because it was a lot easier to make these.

Eventually, when I have the time, I want to make myself a Ravenclaw scarf with Blue and Bronze, which I actually think is a beautiful color combination, but even still, I have been searching for the perfect yarn combination for it and I have not found it.

Also, much of this information and more can be found in my description.

Thank you again!

Edit: Sorry I didn't see you're other post before I posted this. Stupid messages thing didn't tell me. I also lied about the 12.5 feet thing (that was the Dr. who scarf I made, lol). But they do now take me closer to 15 hours because I have gotten a lot better.

They are 1,045 stitches per stripe. 55 stitches across and I knit 19 rows.

I got the pattern from the book Charmed Knits by Alison Hansel. It's a great book and I recommend it to anyone who likes to knit Harry Potter related stuff. :)

EDIT: Lol. I got over excited and commented before I read the comment. So they took 20+ hours? And yours are around 6.33 feet without fringe and 6 inches across? And mine are 8.75 feet without fringe and 9 inches across. >.< Drat. I could have made them smaller and still have them look good.

How many stitches per square?

In two words, a-mazing! Yeah, I bet you were tired after that, but congratulations! I was looking for some inspiration, since I was planning to knit a Ravenclaw one for myself (I couldn't find bronze yarn neither, but I found some reddish beige that may work as bronze), but I never thought of using circular needles. Tell me, is it very difficult to knit circularly? I've never tried, but your scarves made me think that it would be a good way to avoid curling while using jersey stitch.

Anyway, congratulations again, I love those scarves! Your friends are so lucky ^^

Thank you so much! It is not hard at all to knit with circular needles (in fact I would say it is easier because all you do is the knit stitch all the way around, instead of knit purl, to create the stockinette stitch). I would either look it up on youtube to see how it is done, or find someone who knows how to knit with circular needles. Once you learn, though, it is very easy to do. It just looks confusing at first.

Although, I am kind of strange because I learned on circular needles (I learned how to knit just to make these scarves, but I started with the circular needles).

Thanks again! :)

Sorry, one more thing. Is the Jersey stitch the same as the stockinette stitch? I was wondering because I'm kind of a knitting n00b.

:iconbelsanempress:
BelsanEmpress Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011
Yes, I think it is. I actually don't know if the termn "jersey stitch" is used in anglosaxon countries (I'm from Spain), but I didn't know any other way to say it ^^U. I've searched for stockinette stitch in Google images and it appears to be what I call jersey stitch. Thank you for the advice, and don't you worry, I'm a n00b too XD

Keep it up! Knitting is power X3

The problem is, I promised a lot of people scarves, so I couldn't throw my needles down. Once I make a promise I keep it. :)
