Faux “Knit” Prisoner of Azkaban Scarf

© Jennifer Ofenstein (ofenjen)


Example made in Red Heart worsted weight – Soft Navy & Carrot (for Ravenclaw)
Size I afghan or other long crochet hook


Varies by size – work with what you like best


Use the Tunisian “knit” stitch. A good tutorial can be found here.

Row 1: ch 15 for a narrow scarf, or 42 for wider “movie” size. Insert the hook into the 2nd ch from hook, yo, and pull loop through the chain stitch (2 loops on hook).

Insert hook into next chain, yo, and pull loop through ch, rep *to to end of row, leaving all loops on the hook. The number of loops on the the hook should be the same as the beginning foundation chain. Do not turn.

Row 2: Working from left to right, yo and pull through first loop on hook, yo, and pull through next 2 loops, rep to to end of row (1 loop left on hook).

Row 3: Insert hook between the 2 double vertical strands of each loop (from front to back), below the chain formed by row 2, yo and pull through a loop (loosely), rep to across row.

Row 4: Repeat row 2

Repeat row 3 & 4 for pattern. When changing color, attach at end of even row at “1 loop left” so that the remaining loop is the new color.

Color Changes

1 – 28 in MC (you can easily count the rows you’ve made by the ridges on the back of your work)
29 – 32 in CC
33 – 38 in MC
39 – 42 in CC
43 – 66 in MC

Repeat 13 times. You should have 14 sets of “captured” bars and each end should be 28 rows long. Fold the entire scarf in half and whip stitch. The seam can be in the back or on a side – your choice. Whip stitch the ends closed and add short fringe all the way across.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
