The Harry Potter films feature many modes of magical transportation, from flying broomsticks to Floo powder to the famous Hogwarts Express. Creating all of these artifacts was the responsibility of a massive team of artists, designers, and prop makers all working under the direction of production designer Stuart Craig. Some of these items, like the broomsticks, simply required a new take on a magical classic, while others, like the zany purple Knight Bus from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, had to be imagined and built from scratch.

This scarf is an ode to all the magical methods the wizarding world uses to get from A to B. Stitched in the round so there is no visible wrong side, this extra-warm scarf is adorned with broomsticks, Knight Bus motifs, and the symbol for platform nine and three-quarters—where student wizards catch the Hogwarts Express. The scarf length is easily adjustable depending on number of pattern repeats. Multicolored fringe is worked on both ends with a crochet hook, fusing the edges of the tube closed.

Scarves needs 5 hanks of MC, 2 hanks of CC1, 1 hank of CC2, and 1 hank of CC3.
