My boyfriend asked me to make him a Gryffindor scarf so this is the result! I started it in the summer...and procrastinated alot ^^; but I finally finished about a week ago yay! You'd probably need a lot of time to make this, but its pretty simple. I recommend wearing this with a black pea coat, or anything that resembles a black robe...hahaha [x
Note: This is my first crochet pattern, so I apologize if things are sort of unclear, just ask me if you need any help with the directions
Use red yarn first for a more authentic look.
Ch 32, when you start, leave a tail as long as you want the tassels to be
(this part is kinda hard for me to explain...but I hope you'll understand ._. if you need a picture I'll try to take one)
sc 1 in 2nd ch
then ch1, sk ch and sc in next ch
repeat until you reach the end, then ch 1 and turn
basically you're creating holes so that you can fit the tassels in
each stripe should have 14 rows (31 sc)so for the first stripe, sc 13 rows, then change to gold (see below please!) and sc 14, then change to red and sc 14 and so on until the scarf is as long as you want, but for the last row, sc 13 rows (see even belower!). I crocheted 19 stripes total. Try to end the scarf with red also so it looks neater, but you dont have to
HOW TO CHANGE THE COLORS:
when you reach the end of your 14 rows, ch 1 with opposite color instead of the usual color.
then cut the yarn, making sure to leave a tail 2 inches or longer
i like to sc 2 rows first before knotting the two tails.
knot it like so
then knot it the opposite way...if that makes sense. when you do this, the tails will correspond with their stripe color which makes weaving them into the scarf alot neater.
THE LAST ROW:
basically you're doing what you did in the first row.
after you ch1 and turned, sc in 1st sc, then ch1, sk sc and sc in next sc
repeat until the end, then tie it off and leave a tail as long as you want the tassels to be
HOW TO MAKE THE TASSELS:
cut pretty long a string of yarn, about 3 yards. doesnt need to be exact, but just make sure all the strings are the same length. then fold the string in half about three times.
poke it halfway through a hole at the end of the scarf
take the end of the tassel and put it through the hole you just made
then pull the tassel through!
I made all the yellow tassels first, skipping a hole between each because those are where the red tassels belong
you can trim the tassels to make it neater if youd like
and you're done! sorry for the dirty mirror D:
