So I was a lurker here on Craftster for a very long time until the Back to Hogwarts swap pushed me to finally get an account last fall. And besides the swap I never posted my projects, so I figured I should. Smiley

I FINALLY finished my HP Gryffindor scarf this past December! I think that makes it a work-in-progress for a year? Heh heh Smiley
As it is my first knitting project, I used this scarf to teach myself to knit, so it's not perfect, but I love it nonetheless Smiley

It was after I saw tasket.basket's BEAUTTTIFUL scarf that I knew I wanted to make one for myself. So just like she did, I used the atypically.knit pattern for the Prisoner of Azkaban-style scarf. I don't think atypically.knit works anymore, but you can still find the pattern through archives, I included the link below.

More true to colors:



Since this scarf was knit in the round, it was quite a lengthy first project. The scarf ended up being roughly 6 feet long and 10 inches wide (with the width varying a little, because my blocking needs some work haha). I decided to add my initials on one end of the scarf, because if I'm making my own scarf I might as well right? So I used cross-stitching to do that.




Thanks for looking! Any knitting tips for a beginner are most welcome Smiley

For saying that this is what you learned to knit on it looks amazing.  Your tension is even and I don't see anything wrong with it.  Way to go!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
