Making the scarf  for my nephew.  Using caron simply soft.  #us 6 needles.  And making it flat not in the round.  Would seed stitch make it thick enough.  Im not doing double thickness.

I'm making a harry potter scarf too.  It was the first thing I started making, and it's taking a while and I've started other things also. 
I'm doing the scarf on 4.5mm (size 7) needles, with 1 row knit, 1 row pearl, with 6 knit stiches at each end of the purl rows to keep it from curling up.  My yarn is around 8ply.

I think the scarf will not look authentic though, because I don't have the time to make it oversize enough, and the movie ones look really finely knitted, like machine knitting.  Also, I've made so many mistakes in it, and I'm such a beginner that correcting mistakes seems too tricky, so the mistakes are jus left in there.

I'm hoping to have it finished in a week from now when my husband and I go to see Goblet of fire.

I just made one for a friend of mine, and I worked it in 1x1 rib, which seemed to work out alright. I like it better than seed stitch, just because it looks a little closer to stockinette which is what's used in the film.

Whiterabbit  How many stitches did you cast on?  Because it will crawl together when done.  I dont want it to wide.
