How to Crochet Your Own Gryffindor Scarf

The houses at Hogwarts have a couple of different patterns of scarves, one with alternating chunks of color, and another with small bars of accent color. Good thing they're both easy to make.

ch = chain sc = single crochet

I suggest using Super Value Ranch Red and Gold. Mostly because they cost just a few bucks.

Scarf #1

The younger witches and wizards wear scarves with large chunks of color.

  1. Start with red. ch 40 for a nice, thick scarf.
  1. sc 12 rows of red
  2. change color to gold yarn
  3. sc 12 rows of gold
  4. change color back to red yarn
  5. Repeat 2-5 until you've made your scarf as long as you like it. End the scarf with a 12-row sc of red so that the ends look the same.

Scarf #2

The Gryffindor scarf for older kids has a pattern of two small gold lines on a field of red. This free crochet pattern will show you how to make a quick and simple Gryffindor scarf.

Start with the red yarn.

  1. ch 40 for a nice, thick scarf.
  2. sc 12 rows of red
  3. change color to gold yarn and sc 2 rows
  4. sc two rows of red
  5. sc two rows of gold again
  6. Repeat 2-5 until you've made your scarf as long as you like it. End the scarf with a 12-row sc of red so that the ends look the same.

I chose a single crochet stitch so that the scarf has fewer gaps in it. You can also knit and felt a house scarf.
