Crochet: Harry Potter 1st Year Scarf- for children
Years ago I made Harry Potter scarves for each house and the two different styles. Hearing my niece is now huge into Harry Potter it was time to crochet her a Gryffindor scarf! Her favorite house!
All houses can be made with this pattern. The children’s is narrower and a little shorter than the adult ones I have made.
Gryffindor: Red and Gold (red being the primary color)
Ravenclaw: Blue and Bronze (The bronze looks gray to me so that is what I used. Blue is the primary color.)
Slytherin: Green and Silver (Green being the primary color.)
Hufflepuff: Black and Yellow (Yellow is the primary color.)
Crochet Materials Needed:
Red yarn- I used Caron- Claret
Yellow/gold yarn- I used Caron- Sunflower
H hook/ 5 mm
7 inches wide
71 1/2 inches long
Fringe is 8 inches long
11 sections alternating red and gold. Interesting that they begin school at age 11 at Hogwarts!
Crochet Scarf Directions
Harry Potter children’s scarf
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 1, turn. (20)
Row 2-18: sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn. (20)
Row 19: join the gold and sc across, ch 1 turn
Rows 20-36: sc across, ch 1, turn
Row 37: join the red, sc across, ch1, turn
Rows 38- 54: sc across, ch 1, turn
Rows 55-198: repeat rows 19-54
You should start with the red and end with the red. There should be 11 sections in all, alternating red and gold.
Sew in the ends.
Fringe for scarf
Notice the difference between the knots and make sure you are doing them the same direction.
You need sections of red and gold that are 17- 18 inches long (4 strands in each group). Tie to the ends, by folding in half and using crochet hook, pull the middle of the folded strand through as one big group. You will have a loop now through your project. Pull the ends through the loop and it will tie them in a knot.
Start with red and end with red, alternating red and gold. (19 groups, you can do fewer, to space them out and not be quite so crowded.)
*Make sure you tie them on the same side of the project. It doesn’t matter which side, just make sure you are pulling them through on the same side.
Trim fringe, I made this one 8 inches long.
