I am the founding member of the Anchorage Stitch N Bitch – The Late Bloomer’s Society, and it’s pretty awesome. We get together at various locations around town (though usually my own storefront, because then I will surely make the gathering), and work on current projects, sip vino, eat snacks, and usually talk a little smack. It’s pretty therapeutic and awesome to hang around such crafty, sassy company. I seem to be production knitting these days (but awaiting my chance to make another baby blanket for someone special), and I’ve been cranking out striped scarves. It started with Harry Potter and went from there.
I do sell the Gryffindor scarves online, (and other houses here) and you can find some of my other color combinations around, but should you be so inclined, they are super easy to make too.
- Cast 40 stitches onto a round 6 mm needle
- Purl in the round until you reach desired stripe width and switch colors
- To avoid that color ‘hop’ when switching colors, slip the first previous color stitch over the next needle without purling after you have stitched the first round
- Continue until desired length, turn inside out, finish with tassels
And of course, if you can have a cocktail while you’re knitting, it makes things even better….!

I’m looking to make my own for Ravenclaw. I’ve never done a scarf like this before. Are there any pointers that you can give me?
Awesome! I suggest slipping the first stitch of the color change to the next needle to avoid the color hop when you turn it inside out, otherwise, have fun!
