Getting sick of Harry Potter crafts yet? I hope not! Because I’m not even close to done! Seriously, I have so many more ideas. The house colors make for a lot of easy planning and creative uses.
This week I decided to make a set of cute teddy bear scarves. They’re pretty simple to make, though in retrospect I think I would have done a couple of things different.
The scarves are a straight knit the whole way through, and I opted to go without fringe. Looking back on it, I wish I had gone with a knit one row, pearl one row, repeat pattern, as that would have resulted in a flatter and cleaner looking knit. With something so small that can really make a difference. Oh well, lesson learned, right? On the bright side I’m still happy with my choice to opt out of adding fringe. It may have looked better with the knit/pearl pattern though.
Also, it’s really hard to find four matching teddy bears! At least without spending a fortune. My local box stores didn’t have any, and I just didn’t feel like going through a bunch of toy stores hoping to find them, so I ultimately googled ‘bulk teddy bears’ and ordered them online. Thank goodness for the internet!
