Harry Potter Themed Scarf

Picture of Harry Potter Themed Scarf
FYI: I do not, in any way, begin to claim that I own the rights to anything Harry Potter. If I did I wouldn't be working two jobs and trying to pay off student loan debt! But enough of me blabbing... on to the fun stuff!

Materials: 

Needle: #8 circular knitting needles

Yarn: Two colors in your choice of house. For those who are super serious about this and are afraid of choosing the wrong colors, I've done the leg work for you:
-Gryffindor: Main color (MC): Red Heart Burgundy #376. Secondary color (SC): Red Heart Gold #321
-Ravenclaw:
  - Book Version MC: Red Heart Soft Navy #387 SC: Red Heart Pumpkin #254
  - Movie Version MC: Red Heart Soft Navy #387 SC: Red Heart Grey Heather #400
-Hufflepuff: MC: Red Heart Yellow #324 SC: Red Heart Black #312
-Slytherin: MC: Red Heart Hunter Green #389. SC: Red Heart Grey Heather #400

Instructions:
Cast on 50 stitches in the main color (MC). Join together. (There are many different ways to join together. The way I do it, take the last stitch on your right needle and slip it onto your left. Take what is now the second stitch on the left needle and slip it over the first. Now treat it as the 50th stitch instead of the first.)

Knit 35 rows in MC. Join together the last row. (Joining together the last row will help keep the different color rows even so that you don't have a crimson row turning into a gold row.) Add on the secondary color (SC).

**Knit 4 rows in SC. Join the last row. Switch to MC and stitch 4 rows. Join the last row. Switch to the SC and knit 4 rows, joining the last row together. Finally, switch back to MC and knit 35 rows, joining the last row together. 

Repeat from ** 4 times. Cast off. 

Time to fringe! Hooray! Folding the scarf on itself, we are going to fringe together the ends. this will make the scarf double think and double warm. Each fringe will have 3 8" strings of yarn. 2 in MC and 1 in SC. I joined stitches together every other stitch. So basically gather together the 3 strings for the first fringe. Fold in half. Put this loop through the first set of stitches and pull the ends through the loop till tight. Repeat every other set of stitches. I used 24 sets of of fringe, 12 for each end of the scarf. 

And now you can show off your Harry Potter fandom with pride!

This is by far the greatest looking Gryffindor scarf I have ever seen! I just had to try and make one for myself and it worked! Thanks!

Is it hard to learn how to knit?, because I am going to make my mom a Hufflepuff scarf for Christmas and I have never knitted in my life!... This has to be, by far, the coolest one I have seen on here! and I can't find a good one for crocheting...

I was taught how to knit when I was eight by my grandmother so I would say no, it's not difficult to learn. This pattern involves only the basic knit stitch which makes it even easier. The hardest part for me is always that very first loop. There are countless videos out there on how to knit. You would be amazed how many you can find on YouTube alone. Let me know how it goes!
Awesome!
