So I did a LOT of knitting around Thanksgiving, and am just now getting around to posting pictures  of the stuff I made. The first thing I knitted (in the car on the way up!) was another Jayne hat; this is actually he fourth one I've knitted, but the first one I've put on craftster. It's kind of sad how I've memorized the pattern Grin

I also started knitting my Harry Potter Dark Mark Illusion Scarf before the break, but didn't get around to finishing it until later- it took FOREVER because it's so long. Even when I wrap it around my neck, both ends reach past my knees! Maybe that's normal? I don't really know, as I live in Texas...

Here it is as modeled by my oh-so-lovely floor, the pen is for scale.

And here's the illusion part. I am now known at school as "that girl with the skull scarf"  Wink

Wow, I absolutely love the illusion scarf. Did you use a pattern or do it all yourself? If there was a pattern, could there be a chance of sharing? Again, great job!

I used a pattern I found when I was looking at a swap partner's wists. The pattern includes the four charts that make up the illusion dark mark-y part and you need Adobe Acrobat to see them.


Happy knitting!

Wow! Tutorial for the scarf? I'd totally make that.

....I need to get around to making a Jayne hat, but I never have the right yarn!

@ Plumbum
As far as the difficulty of the knitting, it's really not that bad. You just need to know how to knit, purl, read a pattern, and be really patient (because it takes forever!).

The scarf is awesome, the Jayne hat is well, pretty cunning!!!
