If you can knit a rectangle in rib and change colors, you can easily show off your Harry Potter Fandom with pride!

I knit as  many as three Harry Potter scarves this year. They make me very very happy, because not only do they knit up real quick , but they also make wonderful gifts, not only for teens and kids, but to all Harry Potter nerds of any age. And my universe seems to have a plentiful supply of the same.

In case your universe,  too, is composed of a generous supply of the same, you would wish to knit one of these. I have knit here a Gryffindor house scarf. But, I would love to knit the other house scarves as well in the future.

But, at present, here is the pattern for Gryffindor Scarf. Remember, you can easily adapt this pattern by using the appropriate House colours


Yarn : Fingering weight or 4ply yarn.  I have used J.Sagar Bri Acro (10 balls 25 gm each)

Main color (MC):       Deep red 200 grams  8 balls Shade #29 

Contrast color (CC):  Gold  50 gms  2 balls Shade #36

 Needles:3.25 mm 16 inches circular

 Hook :to add fringe

 Finished size:72 inches by 8 inches +4  inches fringe


Cast on 72 stitches in MC

knit in 1×1 rib.

Follow the color scheme given below to create the Trapped band pattern.

 MC 42 rows

CC 6 rows

MC 8 rows

CC 6 rows

Repeat these 62 rows as per your preference of the length of the scarf

Knit MC 42 rows to end.

Cast off and add fringe to the scarf to finish off.

    What are the directions for a scarf half the size? Can it be knitted without a circular needle?
