On Harry’s first night at Hogwarts in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Professor McGonagall says, “While you’re here, your house will be like your family.” This becomes especially true for Harry, as his friends and classmates in Gryffindor become the first true family he’s ever known. Students at Hogwarts show their house pride in a variety of ways: earning house points, cheering for their team at Quidditch games, and of course, wearing their house colors. Among the most popular pieces of house-themed apparel are the classic house scarves.

This design is worked in the round from the bottom up with no purling. The easy tubular construction means there’s no wrong side and the length is easy to adjust. The clean jogless stripes give this scarf a classic prep-school feel and quick fringe decorates both edges for a playful touch. Whether you’re a Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin, a house scarf is a must-do project for any knitter who’s ever dreamed of going to Hogwarts.

Scarves use 5 hanks of MC and 2 hanks of CC.
