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.
