The Dark Mark is Voldemort’s symbol. Branded on the inner forearm of each Death Eater, the Mark shows a skull with a snake protruding from its mouth. The Dark Mark can also be conjured by the spell Morsmordre, as Harry learns at the Quidditch World Cup in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Worked back and forth in rows in highly contrasting shades, this garter-based illusion scarf may look like a simple stripe pattern, but it has a hidden Dark Mark motif on one end and its spell, Morsmordre, on the other. Breaks in the garter stitch using just knits and purls create these illusions, which are only visible when observed at an angle. Carrying the yarns up the side means minimal finishing. Attach fringe, if you dare!

Scarf needs 2 hanks of each color.
