Create Your Own House Scarf for September Craft Along


Sep 01, 2009

Posted by EdwardTLC

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!

Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: *squee* I love the Leaky Crafts and the Craft Alongs. The Crafty Witches and Wizard are awesome. I still havent figured out how to knit despite the tutorials in the Crafty forums so, I might try to think of some other way of making a scarf. Avatar ImageTheGriff says: I've been learning to knit lately so i'm gonna attempt to make a scarf...i'm still really slow though so i'll probably only be able to wear it the winter after next haha.

I've tried once before last winter sometime, but it went very slowly and I kinda gave up, but I'll hope this acts as a kind of stroke of inspiration. I really liked the first version of the PoA scarves anyway. Avatar Imagemjkalldaway says: That's creative and fun, but i don't think i can participate =)Avatar ImageBritski says: I ironically started my Harry Potter class on September 1st. hahaAvatar ImageFlora Lovegood says: Cool....I have always wanted to learn to knit better, though crocheting is more my thing...I really want a Ravenclaw scarf though, so I may have to jump in on my "spare time" LOL!Avatar ImageRowling Stones says: i totally want to participateAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahahahaAvatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahahahahaAvatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: I would love to make myself a Ravenclaw scarf, in real Ravenclaw colors. But unfortunately I don't know how to knit.Avatar ImageMissJubilee says: Hm, I've already made a movie-colors Ravenclaw scarf (the wide stripes version), and a house unity scarf of my own design, but now I'm teaching at a school that actually has four houses of its own (whose house colors are also red, yellow, blue, and green, funnily enough) and I'm in the house with yellow as its color, so I think my fall knitting project will be to create my own design that's got plenty of yellow, and touches of the other three colors, and probably some black as well, but still a basic knit tube that I flatten when it's done to make a nice, warm, double-thick scarf. Knitting stockinette in the round and counting rows between color changes is about all I have mental energy for these days outside of school!Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: I'll give it a try! :DAvatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: Those illusion scarves look truly magical!!!Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: pshaw... wish I had more spare time :P
