Green and Silver. I never made the connection to Harry Potter when I knit up the scarf but after I tried to think of where I could wear this one, I realized it’s very Slytherin-esque. It’s what spurred the attempted creation of The Hogwarts Collection.
I love Harry Potter. So I think it’ll be cool to have all the scarves that the students wear during the movies.
The scarves that are in the films were probably machine-made, but they’re of a really thin yarn and made incredibly with small needles and a lot of patience.
I don’t have that kind of patience.
So instead I made a K2P2 Rib Stitch scarf of varying lengths in green and silver, and it turned out great. I love the final result!
I haven’t bought the other colors because every single time I walk into a store, I can never find the colors I want.
Slytherin was easy- just find a forest green and a shimmery silver and you’re golden. Gryffindor is a deep maroon and a burnt gold. Ravenclaw is a royal blue and a deep bronze, and Hufflepuff is a yellow and black. In theory Hufflepuff would be the easiest but finding a yellow that isn’t Mustard (which would work better for Gryffindor) or neon (which wouldn’t work at all) isn’t that easy of a task.
