How to Make a Ravenclaw 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.

In this tutorial, ch. means chain and sc. means single crochet.

Ravenclaw scarves vary in color because of differences between the Harry Potter books and movies. The 'book colors' for Ravenclaw scarves are bronze and dark blue.

The 'movie colors' for Ravenclaw replace the bronze with silver.

I suggest using Super Value Denim Heather and Gold or Gray. 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 a dark blue ch. 40 for a nice, thick scarf
  2. Sc. 12 rows of dark blue
  3. Change color to the gray or bronze yarn
  4. Sc. 12 rows of gray or bronze
  5. Change color back to dark blue yarn
  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 dark blue so that the ends look the same

Scarf #2

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

Start with the dark blue yarn.

  1. Ch. 40 for a nice, thick scarf
  2. Sc. 12 rows of dark blue
  3. Change color to gray or bronze yarn and sc. 2 rows
  4. Sc. two rows of dark blue
  1. Sc. two rows of gray or bronze again
  2. Repeat 2-5 until you've made your scarf as long as you like it. End the scarf with a 12-row sc. of dark blue 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.
