Don't know how to knit? 'Tis fun! We'll teach you, and show you how to make your own Hogwarts scarf.

Materials to bring: Pair of Knitting Needles (size #8, 5.0 mm); Yarn (see below for colors, and how much you'll need).

If you're just starting out, get yourself a ball of multicolor yarn in some bright colors.

The HP movies had different scarves in the first two movies compared to the second two. So you'll need to decide which ones you like better. You'll also need to buy yarn in the right colors. We have our suggested colors listed below, using the Red Heart 100% acrylic yarn because it's easy to work with and fairly inexpensive to get a lot. (All color numbers are for the Red Heart "Super Saver" line except where noted for the "Classic" yarn.)

You also have to choose between the easy, medium, or harder type of scarf. You can make a single-sided scarf (45 stitches across); or a 90-stitch scarf which you can fold over and sew; or a continuous "circular" 90-stitch scarf.

Yarn Colors for Sorceror's Stone/Chamber of Secrets scarves

These are just our suggestions for yarn colors, using Red Heart Supersaver and Classic yarns. If you'd like to pick different colors or a different kind of yarn for your House scarf, go right ahead.

In the movies, they changed the color scheme for the Ravenclaw scarf, compared to how it was written in the books. So if you're Ravenclaw, you'll need to decide if you want to go by the movies or the books.

Slytherin - Main Color: Hunter Green #389; Contrast Color: Light Grey #341.
