Just thought I'd post this, since the movie comes out tomorrow and everything. My friend asked me to knit her a scarf in Slytherin colours, back in mid-September or so, in time for the movie. I agreed, but then realized that knitting in 1x1 rib for, like, eighty million rows is boring as hell. So, I kind of put it down and knit a sweater and half a pair of gloves for my sister, and then realized about a week ago how behind I was on this damn thing. Hence, under the wire. Barely.

This isn't the atypically knit pattern, because I found that made prohibitively thick scarves that took way too long to make.

That's fabulous! Nice work on getting it done just in time!

And as for myself, I LOVE big long thick scarves. I think I'm a knitting masochist.

so did you just do 1x1 rib flat?  i was thinking the same thing about that pattern -- knitting a double-thickness scarf seemed too onerous to even attempt.  yours looks really good though!

She loved it!

Yeah, I just knit it flat. . .on something like 32 stitches, which is a little narrow, if I did it again I'd make it wider. The other one was actually too thick to wrap around my neck once. It was a bad idea. Looks cool if I just wear it draped around my neck, Rocky-style, but it's not very practical.

That's the type of scarf I am going to be making as Christmas gifts, except in Gryffindor colours. I'm very glad you decided to make it not extra-thick because I really am not willing to make it that thick and yours looks gorgeous so obviously nothing bad can happen!

1 x 1 rib is "knit one, purl one" ribbing
Flat means that she knit one layer .  the pattern calls for you to knit a tube so the scarf will be two layers.
