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.
<p>This is really cool, about how long did it take??</p>
answer: about 4 hrs. <br><br>check it out!
<p>just finished mine and i love it</p><p>Go Ravenclaw!</p>
<p>Its confuzing help me:(</p>
<p>just weave the yarn through the straws if you want ill send yuo my video of me doing it if that might help</p>
<p>its amazing! your totally awesome dude</p>
<p>I think it great to make it!</p>
im going to go buy green and silver yarn for a ravenclaw one now :)
Those are Slytherin colors!
<p>Yes, if you choose those colors, you may end up in Draco's House! (No offense, Slytherins!)</p>
Actully, Ravenclaw is BLUE and silver ! Sorry i'm a bit of a Harry Potter fan xxx.
I just wanted to say, Slytherin is green and silver not Ravenclaw :)
Agh, wht was I thinking? Of course. I feel stupid now. Well, I gt my slytherin scarf done (with grey and green :D) and am workIng on a ravenclaw one for<br>My BFF now :)
I have a weaving kit that does this but it can only make it like 1 foot and it turns out AWFUL.
&nbsp;How do you change sections? &nbsp;I didn't get that part of this instructable but otherwise it was really&nbsp;awesome.
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.
This is AWESOME! I'm going to make a Ravenclaw one!
I know! Ravenclaw is awesome.
AGREED! It will match my Ravenclaw robe nicely. That and my radish earrings and butterbeer cork necklace. =D
Luna lovegood fan? :) one of my favs 2!
I love Luna too! She's so quirky! I'm a Hufflepuff fan myself!
GOOOO RAVENCLAW!!!!!! xD (We are the smartest!)
Finally got around to uploading a photo. Thanks for the instructions!
What house scarf is that ? Or is it just a homeade one ? xx
Its Griffindor
Gee. I didn't know I was completely limited to the colors of the houses from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. <br><br>Bandersnatch House! Colors teal, purple and vermillion.
just wanted to ask... when you pushed the yarn off onto the straws, did it seem to &quot;unravel&quot; a bit?<br>'cause that's what mine did, and i'm not sure how to fix it D:
This is the easiest h.p. scarf ive EVER seen!
OMG my daughter will flip out of this. excited to try it out amd surprise her. thanks very much!!
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 love harry potter
LOL!that stotally crazy!amazing sarf!
thanks for the great instructable!!! here is my (amazing) RAVENCLAW SCARF!!!!
&quot;UNDER OVER UNDER OVER UNDER OVER BAAAACK&quot; XD best explanation yet xDDD
I dont get what to do when the scarf gets too long for the straws...
just slide the part you wove onto the yarn. it will slide right on!!!
I got really confused............ so i knitted it instead.
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?<br>... is that supposed to happen?<br><br>if not, could you tell me how to make it properly? XD
It's essentially a basic weave... <br>I had weaving kit when I was younger and I made scarves with it all the time... sad I donated it .... <br>
Wait. I might sound stupid but, do you weave toward the taped side or away from it?
THIS IS AWESOME!!! Im totally making a gryffindor one right now. i took a break to type this...lol LOVE IT!!! Great Job!
could you possibly make this on a larger scale like a sweater?
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. :)
I kind of think so, it seems like you would.
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.
