with all these people knitting the HP scarves, I have yet to see someone wear it around the streets... maybe it's just not cold enough yet?

i have seen a lady wear it around my school campus! gryffindor colors are the same colors as my school's (loyola is maroon and gold) but it was a trapped bar scarf and definitely looked handknit (not to say it didnt look professionally done because it was really well knit)!

i also made a ravenclaw trapped bar scarf for a guy and he wears it around too!

i wore my gryffindor trapped bar scarf last winter many times. handy in freezing chicago winters.


Citrus_Crafter, i may make a 1x1 rib scarf too! your ravenclaw ones look lovely Smiley

Silbi, you go to LUC? AWESOME! If I yell loud enough maybe you could hear me Wink

(I go to the University of Chicago... unfortunately, our colours don't match anything HP)

The 1x1 rib seems like a good solution to the curling of the stockingnett.

SMRT!

I've been knitting a scarf for a number of years. after the first movie came out, i started knitting one for my husband. I followed some internet instruction that said to knit with 2 piece held together and knit it in the round.

After using about 15 large skeins, the scarf weighed about 8 pounds it was like carrying a baby around your neck! it was one of my first knitting projects, so the weight didn't occur to me till it was done.

It sat in the closet for years. about a month ago, i frogged it and started over. I'm knitting the year 3-4 scarf from Charmed Knits, and I think it will be must better! it probably won't smuther the wearer.

aww how sad it didnt work out. i dont know why you would knit with two strands held together unless it was really thin yarn!

im really glad u are using it to make something new tho. good luck with it!

I have hit a lull in my scarf... it's just very very dull working in the round stockinette. 

Le BORE!

I'm knitting this for a friend, but she came by a couple of days ago, and didn't seem overly enthuses about it, and pointed out flaws.

(i mean it's ok for me to point out the flaws, but... it just sounds not ok coming out of someone else's mouth.)

to bring this post back to the topic at hand...

I am having some issues working the color changes. 

1. I'm trying the double knit in join as seen on knittinghelp.com
2. I am also trying to do the jogless jog.

combined the two effort is a little weird.  It's like I can only fix one problem at a time, when you try to fix more then one, the result is a jumbled mess.

Try knitting in the ends with th jogless join.  It worked beautifully for me with Slytherin modified armwarmers.

i would suggest not doing any of those tricks at all. it might make for much less headache.

i didnt use the jogless join because you are going to fold the scarf at that edge anyway.

and i did normal weaving in of ends. it actually gave me something different to do after miles and miles of stockinette. and it turns out really neat.

i will post pictures later tonight.

Edited for pics:


im usually pretty picky about my knitting. but this time around i maintained my sanity instead!

The tension of the end being knitted in usually needs adjusting.  If you leave it loose & floppy, guess what!

Here is the double knit in flop.  as one can see in the picture in the 5 & 6th verticle row  where the knitting joins is strange looking... this isn't as evident in the pictures, but in person it's real noticeable.


here's the knit the ends as you go... it's more noticeable in the yellow above as opposed to the red...

i think I might do the double knit in, and just ignore the jog...
