Fans of the "Harry Potter" books and movies enjoy dressing in clothing and costumes that are based on movie clothing and props. Draco Malfoy and his fellow house mates are seen wearing a winter scarf which shows their affiliation with the Slytherin House at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You can crochet a warm winter scarf for your Harry Potter fan. This scarf can be crocheted by a beginner that has mastered the single crochet stitch in a series of rows.
Crochet a chain of 37 stitches with the green yarn. Single crochet in the second chain from the hook. Single crochet in each chain stitch for a total of 35 single crochets.
Turn, chain one, single crochet in each single crochet across the row. Repeat Step 2 for a total of 14 rows. At the end of the 14th row chain one. Pull the top of the chain up to form a loop shape. Pull the right side up until it is taut. This will form a knot. Cut the top of the loop to make a 1/2-inch tail.
Change colour by tying the end of the green yarn to the end of the grey skein. Tie the ends tightly. Pick up the crochet hook and make a chain one with the grey yarn to start the next row.
Single crochet over the two tails of knotted yarn and into each single crochet of the previous row. Turn, single crochet in each single crochet of the first grey row for the second grey row.
Change colour back to green. Single crochet two green rows.
Change yarn to grey, crochet two rows of the lighter colour.
Change yarn to green once more. Crochet 14 rows of green. Repeat Steps 4 through 6. Crochet 14 rows of green. Continue this process until the scarf is 60 to 65 inches long. Make a shorter scarf for a smaller person.
End with 14 rows of green single crochets.
Add a short fringe or leave the ends of the scarf plain. Hand sew an embroidered Slytherin logo patch to one lower side of the scarf.
Use double crochet stitches for a softer, more pliable scarf. The scarf can be crocheted half as wide by starting with an 18-stitch chain.
Be sure to count your stitches in each row or the scarf can be warped.
