I'll probably make one sometime in the fall, as its a little warm for it now (ahem...high today- 92 degrees)

For me it would not only be an ultra cool harry potter scarf, but also, the red and gold are my school's colors, so I will be all cool next winter with my school scarf, that looks much better than the ones they sell, and for much cheaper.

Aw, your kid's being swallowed by the scarf! That's adorable.

Hi guys. I'm new to craftster and was so glad that this knitalong was on here. I've made a few HP scarves for myself, friends and coworkers. I still have 3 or 4 more to make before I've caught up with all the requests. I normally do them on circular needles, but I was wondering if anyone has tried making one on a loom, particularly a Knifty Knitter? The scarves are fun to make, but it gets a little mechanical after a while, and I thought trying it on a loom might be interesting. I just wondered if anybody had any tips or photos of their results using a loom. Thanks!

Here's a (crappy) picture of a couple of the scarves I've made. Sorry, I just moved and can't find the USB cord to my camera, so I used my cell phone camera.

Hi everyone. im going to be starting the gryfinndor scarf soon! the trapped bar version. itll be great cuz i like hp and the colors are my school colors too!

im planning to use US10.5 needles using caron simply soft in autumn red and red heart in gold.
the big needles is because i like the drape that simply soft has in the bigger gauge (about 16st/4in not stretched) and so it wont be too bulky since the scarf is double thickness.

my main problem is, does anyone have any other suggestions for the yellow color? im having a really hard time finding a nice, warm, yellow in the same weight as simply soft. after a lot of searching, im planning on using the red heart, even though it is a bit thicker. the gauge for red heart is 17 st/in on US8s and simply soft is 18st/in on US8s.

before i go ahead with using the red heart, does anyone know a good substitute? i find that all the simply soft yellows are much too light in color. i did a small swatch with red heart and simply soft and it seemed ok. do you think the big needles will help disguise the gauge difference?

im hoping since the red heart is the gold stripes, it wont show much. any wisdom??

also if ur wondering, i dont want to use red heart as the main red color because i find it much too scratchy =/ who can resist the softness of caron??

thank you.

heres a progress pic if anyone cares...

picture was slightly retouched for better color matching. the gold is not so orangey though..at least i hope it isnt.

i have to use two circulars because the width is about 15 in and i could only find 29 in needles in stores. hence, it is going a lot slower than i had planned but i think im getting used to it.

i tried to magic loop with one circular but my tension was terrible at the middle and the end of the rounds. i frogged and started over with two circulars.

im not doing a jogless jog. i think the combination of two circulars and all the ends of yarn at color switching is making it really hard for me to get it right. ive tried about 3 times and gave up.

I think I'll make a PoA Hufflepuff scarf. I made a flece Hufflepuff scarf before, and it's pretty lame looking and falling apart. But it is pretty warm.

switched from two circulars to dpns. sooo much faster! was able to do more than a whole repeat within a day. im glad i forked over $3.99 for cheapo joann plastic dpns. there were clover bamboo ones there..but if i feel iffy about paying $3.99, there no way im going to fork over almost 10 bucks for dnps! and i dont really like the feel of bamboo with simply soft.

i aim to finish before winter!
