Think I could have done with a bit of magic this year with the makes I needed to get finished in time for Christmas, would have definitely made it a bit less manic! However, with this option not available I have had to stick to working away through them all at a slightly frantic pace!
The next makes off my hook are a Harry Potter Gryffindor scarf and golden Snitch. They actually came together much quicker and with fewer problems than I had anticipated, even with making the pattern myself as I went.
I have made 2 sets of these for 2 big fans of Harry Potter, and I have a feeling I will be making a few more for some more of my friends who are also Harry Potter fans once they see these!
You could use this pattern to make a scarf for any of the houses, you would just need to change the colour scheme to the correct one for the house.
