Over the past two years I've been making Harry Potter scarves in the style of both movies for my own scarf whore purposes in between projects for other people so:

Ravenclaw:

Both of these in Brown Sheep Nature Spun

Hufflepuff:
Brown Sheep Nature Spun
This one's in  Unger Utopia, and as you can see there's a dyelot SNAFU because I started this one at the beginning of a hospital stay and it was a while before I could get the rest of the yarn I needed.

Slytherin:
in Nature Spun
in Utopia

Gryffindor:
in Nature Spun

and yayyyy first post!

Wouldn't I be a great spokesperson for things?

I made the Ravenclaw scarf for my Harry Potter swap partner. It was great to see it at the end, I kept acting like I was in Hogwarts. Then I got sad when I had to send it on. Turns out my partner made me a Gryffindor scarf just like it! So now I wear it around the house (cause it's too hot to wear it out now, but my husband likes to keep it like a meat locker in there!) and carry my Hermoine wand around. Smiley

Great knitting!

Is that stockinette or rib?
If I even try to make scarves in either or those stitches they curl up so fast, despite my efforts to ... what's the word? When you steam them flat. Yeah, that doesn't work out for me.

Awesome! I've done a few Harry Potter scarves myself (not all for me though). Too bad about the dyelot on the one Hufflepuff one. I hate when that happens.

Sheila - it's stockinette, but knit in the round because that's how I knit in class so I don't have to look up, and it never hurts to have a double thick scarf (or seven) when it comes to New England winters  Cheesy

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

You found the most perfect colours!  Grin Did you buy them from a LYS or online?  I don't have a LYS and I'm sick of the tiny tiny yarn selections in Michaels!!! 

If you don't mind my asking, what are the row patterns?  Those stripes look perfect!!

I'm not really a HP fan, but I love that 4th scarf.
