I made this Harry Potter scarf for my nephew. I meant to get it done by Christmas (actually, I meant to get 3 of them done by Christmas for all the kids), but it ended up being a birthday present. His birthday is in early January, so I wasn't that late.
The yarn is Encore and the pattern is located at atypically knit. It's a wonderfully warm, thick scarf. It's knitted in the round and the ends of the tube are closed with the tassels. My husband wants one in the Slytherin colors.
The scarf is about 6 or 7 inches wide, and I think the final length was 6 feet. Ideal for a kid in Minnesota.
Speaking of Minnesota, Happy Birthday to my friend in Minnesota who doesn't like birthdays! I hope you enjoy the evening! Thanks for the picture of your beautiful little girl; she's one of my favorite people to knit for!
P.S. Jenny, my emails to you keep getting sent back!
