My Slytherin scarf
I'm a big fan of Harry Potter and different from popular opinion, I love Slytherin House more than Gryffindor. I'd like to have some clothings with the House's colour, but it is out of my budget. So, I'm gonna make one of my own.
The materials are simple enough. I only need wool threads in medium grey and dark green (Slytherin colours!). I use the fine yarn because I don't need too thick a scarf.
My mom has this tool (I don't know what it's called) that can imitate knitting pattern. We simply call it 'knitting device'; it's kind of similar with French Knitting device (picture on the right) but instead of rounded, it's straight. Because of this, I can make rectangle-shaped scarf instead of tube-shaped.
Working my way slowly. I have to keep the counting correctly proportionate between the green and the grey.
Tadaa..! This is how it looks like now. I'm going to wear this when I watch Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix. It's a must(!)
I finish the ends of the scarf with fringes, which is quite easy to do.
Here's what's left from the threads. The scarf didn't use up that much threads after all. But of course, you can always make a bigger scarf if you want.
Can you see the crochet hook at the background? I'm going to use it to make a Slytherin hat! [Actually, I'm already working on it.. :D]
