Create Your Own House Scarf for September Craft Along

Posted by: Edward
September 01, 2009, 11:03 AM

It is September 1st, which means young witches and wizards are setting forth from Platform 9 3/4 on their journey to Hogwarts for the start of the new school year.  Our Crafty Witches have chosen this occasion to inspire their September Craft Along, which involves crafting your very own Hogwarts House Scarf.  Join in with your fellow crafters for this project which can show your creative crafting skills, as well as your House pride.  Tutorials for both knitting and crotchet projects representing each House are available right here, as are videos on the knitting technique.  Join in the fun and discussion with your fellow crafters in the Leaky Lounge, and be sure to post pictures of your completed works over in this thread.

Happy Crafting!

I made myself a “trapped bars” Ravenclaw scarf like in PoA. It came out fairly well for a first knitting project!

I would love to do this, but I already am working on 4 other knitting and crocheting projects. Hopefully I will be free for the next one.

Just yesterday, I was wishing I could take a train to DC instead of a plane so I could pretend I was on Hogwarts Express since I’ve never taken a train trip. I’m so silly. :-P
