Scarves (moved)
« on: July 02, 2002, 08:52:43 AM »

Ping
I thought that the house scarves the kids are wearing in the movies, while not really anything I imagined for the story, would be a fun and fairly easy thing to do, and then you could wear them around for a long while. So, without further ado....

Adult scarf:
alternating blocks of color 40 stitches across and 50 rows long, using #6 needles.

For a child's scarf, you could either do the same with smaller needles, or only go maybe 30 stiches and 40 rows, or something.

Once I have an image of how it will look, I'll post it.

Ping
No, it was just 17, but I think next time, I'd use smaller blocks of color, like 40 rows, and do *pause for math* 21 blocks. I think. I'll try it next time I get some cash and let you know.

I crochet, put I think I want to pick up knitting again just to have one of those scarves.

Useful link: someone's knitting instructions for a Gryff scarf.

The Ravenclaw colors in the movie, were they gray and light blue, or medium? *needs to dig up pics*

What I should make myself for Christmas . . .

[I think that's everything useful from the old thread.] :)

Well, I'm working on one of those, too, and

it's MUCH longer. Hopefully I won't trip over it! :)

I've seen people

wearing them, and I know they bought them somewhere. Does anyone have any clue where you can purchase them? I'm pretty sure they aren't actual

HP scarves, but they look so great!

Ooo, me me! I could make you one!

:)

If you try a search on google for "harry potter scarf" you can probably find some people selling them. It's really quite simple to

make, though, so I can't imagine why you'd go that route. But I also am looking for something to do while watching TV besides trying to finish my Dr.

Who scarf.  ;D

from the movie. and the Quidditch robes and set too. Rather cool stuff to look through, they even bought the chess set from the first movie too.  yes the

big old pieces.

*looks dreamy* Quidditch robes! I want

quidditch robes! And all the pads and stuff. I could probably make the robes, but I'm not sure what to do about the patches. And the pads. Though I

could probably cobble something together. And I need a Nimbus 2000!

OOoh OOOOOH!  I want

Quidditch robes!!!  As for the pads, if you could afford to order cricket pads from England and then cover them in brown leather or maybe paint them (they

all come in white, pretty much) you'd have them.  You'll have to look for the right style, but most of them are really similar.  ;D

Wow! Marold, how did they get all of that stuff? That is so incredibly awesome! I'm

assuming an auction or something, but how did they afford it?[/color]

:D

I'm currently making a Slytherin Quidditch costume... the robe is almost done and I'm working on knitting the sweater (I found a pattern on a Yahoo! group I go to sometimes). I also made a rather spiffy Slytherin scarf that's double thickness (aka very warm). ;)
Here's a picture of it:


My only problem with it is that I didn't make it wide enough... ;)

My scarf was the first thing I ever knitted, and it wasn't too hard for me to learn (I did a google search on how to knit.), so you could probably try that if you wanted to make one. ;)

Cool scarf! I'm somewhere in the middle of a Slytherin scarf, which seems to be taking a lot longer than the other scarves. Probably because I've got the pattern down, know what I'm doing, and don't feel the excitement and wonder of a new pattern. :)

A pattern for the sweater??? Where? Can you post it, or a link or something? I've been wondering what to do about the sweater!
