Hogwarts House Scarf

Last week we were talking about the Harry Potter books and movies and the conservation led to all the different Hogwarts items that you could buy.  One of the most popular items is the Hogwarts house scarves, but the price for a decent scarf can cost a pretty penny. So I grabbed some yarn and crochet hook and set out to make my own scarf. I came up with a one stitch basic scarf pattern that can be used to make a Hogwarts scarf or a scarf in any school or sports team colors.

I used the pattern below, a skein of deep red and a skein of gold yarn, made a few color changes, and tah-da a Gryffindor scarf. You can use this pattern to make a Hufflepuff (Yellow and Black), Ravenclaw (blue and Bronze), or Slytherin (Green and Sliver) scarf, by using yarn the colors of your favorite Hogwarts House.
