Harry Potter Scarf

I am a huge Harry Potter fan, which is easy to see if you spend time looking through my Gallery. This Harry Potter scarf is a great beginning knit project that is knit in the round on 16″ size 8 needles and gives the knitter practice changing colors of yarn. Knitting in the round creates a tube that results in a double-thick scarf in stockinette that doesn’t have a “wrong” side that’s visible. That also means the finished scarf is very satisfyingly thick and warm. Lions Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn is soft, easy to find, and offers colors for all the Hogwartz houses, so is my go-to yarn for Harry Potter projects. You might want to check out this video on changing colors and knitting a jogless join, to help make it less noticeable when you change colors. And this video shows how to add the fringe.
