FO: Ravenclaw House Scarf

Or, as it has not-so-affectionately become known to me, the K1P1 Virus Scarf.

Mind you, now that it is finally finished (and just under the wire, too: less than five minutes before Sunday night's 11:59 deadline), I seem to have put the agony of its creation behind me.

Check out my baby:


It's not perfect -- ideally, I'd like a few more repeats (mine is in-between sizes, see below) for a super-long scarf. And although I'm not usually keen on fringe, I might decide to add some later. But it's done.

Project Details:

Pattern: House Scarves - Year 3/4 Scarf, by Lauren Kent (from Charmed Knits.
Yarn: Elann.com Superwash Chunky (discontinued); 5.5 skeins Moonlight Blue and 1 skein plus a few yards of Nutmeg
Needles: 4 mm/US 6 Addi Turbo 40 cm/16 in circular
Modifications: I cast on 57 stitches for the small size, and knit 16 repeats -- two more than the small, three less than the large. I did not include the fringe, but I'm thinking about doing so.

I might not be singing the blues anymore, but I'm in no hurry to knit another, either.


  1. Yay! Glad to see it done. What's next for the Piggy?

  2. Lovely scarf! I'm sure you're thrilled to have completed it! Congratulations!

  3. Gorgeous! I love last minute finishes! ;) You're my hero.

  4. Hey, awesome! I'd looooove to knit a Harry Potter scarf, but which house would I knit? How on earth would I ever finish?

    So, congrats - it looks great!

  5. Oh wow! The scarf turned out LOVELY!!! I know it was a pain, but what a beautiful creation! Makes the effort worth it, eh?

  6. What yarns did you use for the project? Your brown/bronze is perfect for the Ravenclaw blue/bronze colour combo imo. Nice work :)
