This pattern is available for free.

This was inspired by the scarves in the movie version of Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban, but with a different stripe pattern and i used the book colors for Ravenclaw rather than the movie ones. Also, if you thought the ones in the movie looked warm, this pattern is insane — knit in the round and ribbed, it’s about 4x as thick as single-ply stockinette.

My scarf was 6 reps total and was 6ft long. For that, i used:

  • 4 balls Lion Brand Wool-Ease Navy 111 (197 yds each)
  • 2 balls Lion Glitterspun Bronze #135 (115 yds each)
  • #7 (4.5 mm) circular needles (i used Denise and Magic Loop)
