As Long as the Books
The Harry Potter Scarf, patterned after the ones shown in the Prisoner of Azkaban movie, took forever to knit and it is incredibly long. I made this for a friend who is a Harry Potter addict.
The indoor shot, below, shows the claret color more accurately and the outdoor shot, above, shows the gold more accurately.
Yarn: Emu Superwash in Claret (no. 2) (now no. 1512) and Gold (no.6), 330 g. total weight. This yarn is now made by a new company which no longer offers the gold color.
Needles: Bamboo 16" circulars in 4.25 mm (US 6) for the c/o, b/o and main knitting, 3.75 mm (US 5) addi turbos for the first and last 5 rows to reduce flaring.
Pattern: A free download from Atypically.Knit
Size: 7.5" by 100"
Notes:The pattern called for the scarf to be knit in the round but I didn't want that heavy a scarf so I knit it in K1 P1 rib on 80 stitches. I didn't carry any of the striped colors up the sides which meant I had over 120 ends to weave in on this baby.
