Gryffindor Scarf

I finished the scarf that will be a Christmas present for my nephew James.  I am pleased with the way it turned out and I think the colours are quite nice.  According to what I have read, the official colours of Gryffindor are scarlet and gold, so I tried to find yarn in those colours.  I ended up using Vanna's Choice yarn in Cranberry and Mustard (sounds delicious, I know! haha).  I used this pattern as a general guide for the number of rows between stripes and sort of did my own thing beyond that.  This was my first time making fringe, and it was quite simple.  I am also planning to give James a Harry Potter DS game, and maybe write him a note saying that wearing the scarf will help him to defeat Voldemort....we'll see though, haha.
