This is a Christmas present for a friend who adores Harry Potter.  I didn't want to make her the traditional Hogwarts striped scarves, because...heck, I can do better than that design!  So I crocheted (because I can't knit) this. 
Originally, I had planned to make it entirely out of green and silver granny squares.  However, I am not particularly good at granny squares, and find them rather tedious and difficult.  So I compromised, and used two yarns at once (Simply Soft in grey, and the dreaded Red Heart in green) for most of the scarf (with a really big hook, I forget which size) and then made four granny squares (with a size G hook) and crocheted them to each other and to the scarf.

(note that the squares are actually at either end of the scarf, but I couldn't fit that much on my chair as it's a long scarf)

My first granny square!
(Why is it that these are supposed to be some of the simplest crochet projects, yet I have the utmost difficulty making them look decent???)

It's the second scarf-ly project I've ever made, and the first attempt at granny squares.  I'm rather proud, even though it's not perfect!

Your scarf looks great! I like how you incorporated both colors in the main part of the scarf.

 We also do the HP cosplay thing here, and I *FIRMLY* believe that Hogwarts students would have a variety of house-colored things, not just the 'traditional' striped scarves. I mean, if Mrs. Weasely knits, wouldn't other parents?

wow I like that scarf it's cute. I'm a beginner at this and would love to make granny squares but so far I can't get them but one day I will. Cute scarf.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

v. cute idea and scarf tho I don't like Slytherin.  Smiley

regarding granny squares - they often look a bit funky when they are small, it takes a few rounds to get them perfectly square.  they look ok to me!
