HP Scarf Workshop

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.

Gryffindor - Main Color: Country Red "Classic" #914; Contrast Color: Gold #321.
Slytherin - Main Color: Hunter Green #389; Contrast Color: Light Grey #341.
Hufflepuff - Main Color: Cornmeal #320; Contrast Color: Black #312.
Ravenclaw - Main Color: Blue #886; Contrast Color: Light Grey #341 (or Bronze "Classic" #286 for the book version).

Yardage for Sorceror's Stone/Chamber of Secrets scarves

The first two movies had scarves that were about 5 ft long, with equal width stripes.

45 stitches: Main Color, 200 yards; Contrast Color, 200 yards.
90 stitches: Main Color, 400 yards; Contrast Color, 400 yards.

----------------------------------------

Yarn Colors for Prisoner of Azkaban/Goblet of Fire 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 third and fourth movies, some of the colors were different.

Gryffindor - Main Color: Burgundy #376; Contrast Color: Gold #321.
Slytherin - Main Color: Hunter Green #389; Contrast Color: Light Grey #341.
Hufflepuff - Main Color: Cornmeal #320; Contrast Color: Black #312.
Ravenclaw - Main Color: Royal #385; Contrast Color: Light Grey #341 (or Bronze "Classic" #286 for the book version).

Yardage for Prisoner of Azkaban/Goblet of Fire scarves

The third and fourth movies had scarves that were about 8 ft long, with big stripes and little stripes.

45 stitches: Main Color, 400 yards; Contrast Color, 100 yards.
90 stitches: Main Color, 800 yards; Contrast Color, 200 yards.
