52 Weeks of Literary Crafts: Project #3: Ravenclaw Scarf (classic)

Ravenclaw Scarf

For my third project I decided to make myself a Ravenclaw scarf. My plan is eventually to make myself a full set though. If you’re wondering why I started with Ravenclaw…well the answer is fairly simple. I’m a Ravenclaw! Okay, that was pretty obvious, wasn’t it?
There were a few options I could have gone with for the Ravenclaw scarf. For one, did I want to go with the traditional colors, blue and bronze? Or did I want to go with the colors more commonly used, blue and silver? The latter looks so pretty, but the former is more accurate… In the ended I opted to go more traditional for this scarf. I think I’ll end up making myself a scarf with the other colors too…but mostly because I like hoarding Ravenclaw things.
The last thing I had to decide was which stripe pattern I wanted to go with. I could go with the more commonly seen one, where it’s larger a larger stripe followed by three smaller, on repeat. Or I could go full on blocky stripes.

This project is pretty similar to my Newt Scamander Scarf, so I won’t bore you with all the details.

I did use a loom for this scarf as well.

One thing I would like to note: The bronze yarn I got was significantly thicker than the blue yarn. It’s actually really quite nice. However, because it was so much thicker I opted to only use one strand of that, while still using two strands of the blue. I was worried that if I had used two for the bronze as well, I would have ended up with the scarf being thicker in some areas.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
