House colours scarf – progress

I, umm, started this scarf sometime in 2007. I worked on it on and off until probably December 2007 and then it got tucked away and I didn’t pull it out again until March 28th (… 2009). It’s the Gryffindor house colours (yeah… I’m a Harry Potter fan…). My sister made me a scarf with the Slytherin house colours, which she got done in the summer of 2007… She never tucked it away and forgot about it for a year, obviously!

The pattern is based on the stripe variations in the Atypically.Knit Prisoner of Azkaban scarf pattern. However, the Atypically.Knit pattern calls for the scarf to be knitted on circulars and it’s rather… wide. And, well, I’m kind of a lazy knitter, so when I casted on for this scarf, I did 32, as opposed to 90… And plus, I’m doing mine in 2×2 rib stitch, which I adore. I’m using Bernat Satin in Sunrise for the yellow stripes and Red Heart Super Saver in Burgundy.

The stripe pattern goes as follows: 27 of the red, 3 yellow, 5 red, 3 yellow (repeated for a total of 14 sets of yellow stripes) then another 27 in red. I, as you can see, have 10 sets of yellow stripes. I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll have enough of the red…


Slightly adjusted so you can see the true colours… Except, my problem was that the carpet is the right shade, so is the red, but the yellow’s a tad bright (and it’s dull in the first photo compared to the real thing).
