I'm so proud of this scarf. It's my first time with color changing and duplicate stiching. I used the hogwarts pattern on atypically knit here http://knit.atypically.net/scarves/azkaban/pattern.shtml

Here's a closeup of the duplicate stitich, bars, and fringe.

I used a dust blue wool blend in DK weight and moonlight mohair in the silver colorway. I was going to use bronze glitterspun but I got the mohair for $1.50 a skein at big lots and couldn't pass it up. 

The only changes to the pattern I made were to only do 10 pairs of bars not 14. I knit really loose and this was more based on when I ran out of yarn. Even with only 10 it's still a 6 1/2 foot scarf.  I added a little bit of the mohair yarn into the fringe as well.

Looks awesome, Kstaron! The variegated silver for the stripes with that little bit of sparkle really makes it 'pop', especially on the fringe.
