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.
