Introduction: Easy Harry Potter Scarf

Be the envy of your fanclub with this remarkable scarf. I can not take all of the credit for this for me bestest pal Jake or SIRJAKEOFCAMELOT taught me how to do this. He taught me how to do a scarf and I thought out the whole Harry Potter connection...THANK YOU JAKE!!!

Step 1: Supplies!

1.Two house coloured yarn. I cose to support goog ole Godrick
2.Tape, Duct is best
3.Scissors
4.Time
5.ENDURANCE

Step 2: Straws

get an even amout of straws depending on how thick you want your scarf. I did eight you might want to do anly six. It is important that you only use an even number of straws. cut off the bendy part if they have it.

Step 3: Start Your Engines

Measure out how long you want your scarf to be by wrapping a piece of yarn around you about how long you want it to be, then add about four more inches on to it and cut. line up the newly cut piece of yarn with eight more, or six more or however many straws thick your scarf is.

Step 4: String It Throught

take your piece of yarn and string it through your straws. Tape it on the other end like in the picture

Step 5: Time to Start Weaving

this helps if you have a basic knowledge of how to weave. If you don't it goes like this. UNDER OVER UNDER OVER UNDER OVER BAAAAACK the same thing. Take a new piece of yarn (still not cut)and tie it to one of the end straws. then go over under back. Youll see if you look in the picture.

Step 6: How to Make Sections

to make sections of different colors is easy. just weave on the straws and kinda scruntch it together. Make the section about five inches long. But since i am MUCH to lazy to do that I just used my wallet as a ruler. Then just tie off the first tie on another piece and start over! JUST LIKE PIE! (when it gets to long for the straws just push it onto the yarn)

Step 7: Keep It Up!!

JUST HANG IN THERE!!

Step 8: Finish

when you are all done (FINALLY) pull out the straws and tie the scarf off at both ends, and cut it off.

Step 9: STYLE IT!!

no need for words.

Yes, if you choose those colors, you may end up in Draco's House! (No offense, Slytherins!)

author

I have a weaving kit that does this but it can only make it like 1 foot and it turns out AWFUL.

author
Partex (author)2009-11-22

 How do you change sections?  I didn't get that part of this instructable but otherwise it was really awesome.

author
BubblesGirl915 (author)Partex2014-12-26

You type the end of the string and then start another color by tying it on the straw. You can also tie the new color to your previous one.

author

Gee. I didn't know I was completely limited to the colors of the houses from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

just wanted to ask... when you pushed the yarn off onto the straws, did it seem to "unravel" a bit?
'cause that's what mine did, and i'm not sure how to fix it D:

This was tough at first...the easiest way to get the yarn through the straw is to put a small amt in and then suck on the straw until the yarn comes to the end!

Do you think that this technique could be applied to a pair of socks? I can't knit for my life but I really like this whole weaving thing. Any help would be great!

I dont get what to do when the scarf gets too long for the straws...

author
glien (author)Nagini10252011-07-02

just slide the part you wove onto the yarn. it will slide right on!!!

author
kiwi16877 (author)2011-05-18

I got really confused............ so i knitted it instead.

author
star_empyre (author)2011-04-29

i'm trying to make this scarf, and am using slightly larger McDonald's straws, so when i push the yarn off the straws, they seem to unravel a bit?
... is that supposed to happen?

if not, could you tell me how to make it properly? XD

author
JujubeanO (author)2011-04-26

It's essentially a basic weave...
I had weaving kit when I was younger and I made scarves with it all the time... sad I donated it ....

author
emychan (author)2011-03-10

Wait. I might sound stupid but, do you weave toward the taped side or away from it?

author
tamalf (author)2011-03-08

THIS IS AWESOME!!! Im totally making a gryffindor one right now. i took a break to type this...lol LOVE IT!!! Great Job!

author
globogym (author)2010-08-22

could you possibly make this on a larger scale like a sweater?

author
asiabreen (author)2010-08-13

I already know how to knit, but i must say, this looks really fun. And you did a good job of explaining things. Slytherin scarf, here I come. :)

author
Nagini1025 (author)2010-08-05

I kind of think so, it seems like you would.

author
mudge98 (author)2010-08-01

OH MY GOSH! SO MUCH EASIER THEN KNITTING! Although it is the summer, ravenclaw scarf, here i come!

while weaving mine i ran into the problem of the straws bending and crushing just from repitition. then they end up all flimsy like when you chew on your drinking straw. Just in case anyone else ends up with this problem you can fix it by pulling the broken straw out of the knitted part and removing the tape. then replacing the straw and tape. then pull the individual strand of yarn from the other end to tighten it up a little. then continue weaving. you'll be able to even the straws up next time you advance them.
