Bind off in pattern.

Weave in ends.

Block if desired.

Author's Note: In addition to customizing colors, stripe placement and stripe width, you might also want to make the bottom end a bit wider if you want more chest coverage. The easiest way to do that is to CO 112 stitches (or more) and do (K7, p7) around, then decrease to 96 sts during the second repeat of the pattern. To do the cables, you can put 3 sts on the cable needle, and then work 4 sts before working the stitches on the cable needle.

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!
