Crochet Harry Potter Themed Gryffindor Scarf And Golden Snitch Pattern

Bringing even more magic to Christmas with this crochet Harry Potter Gryffindor Scarf and Golden Snitch

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.

Sewing Tutorial: Quick Make Blue Infinity Scarf

I’ve still got half made birds bursting out of my crochet bag but thought I would take a little bit of a break from them to make his lovely infinity scarf. This scarf would make a great gift for Mother’s Day, a handmade gift is perfect for making anyone feel extra special. This infinity scarf made using the gorgeous summery colours and flowery prints of the ombré trends fabric is the perfect way to make her feel extra special.

Fabric was gifted by The Craft Cotton Company.

Infinity scarf project:


Materials

  • Ombré trends by Heather Jacks for the craft cotton company fat quarter set in blue
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Pins

Assembly:

  • Choose your fabric:

Out of the fat quarter set pick out three fat quarters you want to use.

  • Joining the fabric pieces:

Take the first two of these fat quarter pieces and placing right sides together sew together along the shortest edge, repeat this for the other fabric pieces so all three pieces are joined together to form one long piece of fabric.

  • Sewing together:

Placing the right sides together fold this long piece in half sideways and sew along the bottom, down the long edge and along the top, making sure you leave a 6 cm gap unsewn for turning.

  • Turning and closing the seam:

Turn the scarf the right way around and slip stitch close the seam.

  • Completing the scarf:

Take the two ends and slip stitch down the seams to sew them together to complete the scarf.

Going Loopy For A New Crochet Stitch – Solomon’s Knot

2015/01/img_3828.jpg

I’m always looking for new projects and new stitches to try and when I saw this Solomon’s knot scarf in simply crochet issue 21, and knew I had to give it a go! I also had some wool I’ve been wanting to use for a while and this make was perfect for it, it was Wendy supreme 100% luxury cotton 4ply in salmon.

It’s taken me a while to get round to, but once I got started it did not take long to make it all, it took me a little while to get the hang of the stitch, and wasn’t the easiest to keep the loops all the same size, but once I had got used to it before I knew it I had finished the scarf! It actually looks a lot harder to do than it is, am really glad I gave it a go! I am really looking forward to wearing this, the stitch looks great and I love the colour – nice and bright and summery in all this cold dark weather!
