Take 2 of these strands of yarn and fold them in half to form a loop. With a crochet hook pull this loop through the end of the bookscarf at the side edge. Put the yarn ends through the loop and pull tight. Continue across both ends of the bookscarf adding tassels at each stitch. Fold bookscarf in half and trim the ends of the fringe even.

If you wove in your ends as you worked, trim remaining ends and tuck inside the scarf. Otherwise simply knot at the end and insert inside. Lightly steam or iron with cool iron. Now you can start rereading the series in preparation for the final book in style!

Author's Note

Author's Note - This double knit scarf bookmark is inspired by Laura's fantastic original HP Bookscarf pattern, and posted with permission. This is just an alternate method for working it, and at a different gauge.

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!

Also note that the tutorials, recipes and patterns found here have not been tested and that The Leaky Cauldron's Harry Potter Crafts section is not responsible for any mistakes they may contain. If you do find something wrong in one of them, however, please e-mail us to let us know.
