Harry Potter Wizard Scarf Reviewed by karen olney on 2014-12-10 *****
instead of doing the knit one row purl next method, I used knit 5 stitches, purl next five, etc. for each row.

I made this for my niece who now loves the books. I also made one for my husband and myself and will be adding the house patch.

I know my niece will love being able to have the same scarf as Hermione Granger.

I didn't make this scarf yet, but Kathy from my knitting group made it with her daughter and grandaughter. They encouraged me to make one for my co-worker's daughter.

I agree with the previous posters, with the 4 garter stitches at each end, it does end up rolling over itself and making more of a tube.

I'm hoping that tonight, I'll spray it damp with water and iron it that it will lay flatter.

I also didn't realize (in my excitement) that this is from the earlier movies, the later version, which you can actually purchase from Universal Studios, is mostly just the deep red with smaller gold stripes.

It'll do for what I want, but if I would have thought a little more, I would have done better making my own pattern.

It is too bad that it turns on itself - with the 4 garter stitches on the outside turning in. Wish I had seen the 22 rows per color comment - that picture did look more authentic! Oh well - the colors are perfect and my little Halloween Harry will be happy enough to have it!

I followed this pattern and I wound up with a tube,I was dissapointed, I wanted a flat scarve not a tube.

I liked the pattern and the 22-row stripe version, but mine ended up twisting upon itself. The first four stitches on either side folded themselves in, and as the scarf got longer, it folded itself in again. The net was that it ended up a long tube-like scarf, and did not lay flat. That was disappointing, but inevitable given the way the pattern is written.

While this scarf has the colors down perfectly, for a true HP fan, and for an accurate (according to the books not the movies) looking scarf, each color should only be repeated for 22 rows each not 50 and you should have ten dark stripes and nine light stripes in the end (yes I am a nerdy fan who counted.) I've included a picture I made using this pattern with the aforementioned changes, and even though it's in Halloween colors, people still recognize it as an HP scarf.

These scarves are quite nice. It seems as if scarves 1 and 2 are the older Sorcerer's Stone color block style, whereas 3 and 4 move closer to the newer Prisoner of Azkaban trapped bar style.
