Knitting a scarf is perfect first step for beginning knitters. You can make a scarf of any width, length and color. It is a great idea to use different colors in the scarf to make it a versatile winter wear option. Everyone loves Harry Potter, so why not make your first hand knitted scarf a Gryffindor scarf?
You can wear your scarf with an overcoat, sweater or other clothing items. Knitting a scarf yourself is an inexpensive and useful way to stay warm and stylish. Here are some steps to help you knit a Gryffindor scarf for yourself:
- Collecting Important Stuff – Start off by collecting stuff you will require for knitting a scarf. You can pick compression gloves for knitting along with the basic stuff like scissor and needles. These gloves can keep you warm and comfortable while knitting. They also protect your hands from stiffness, pain and rashes.
- Choosing a Yarn – There are many colors of yarn to choose from, but to make a Gryffindor scarf, you will want a burgundy and gold colored yarn. Take about six ounces of yarn as this will help you make a six inches wide and five feet long scarf. A scarf of this length and width can look perfect!
- Knitting the Scarf – Wear your arthritis compression gloves and start by casting 24 stitches. Make a simple garter stitch and go all the way across the row. Keep repeating this process until your scarf gets the length you want. Don’t forget to tie the ends off in the end.
Using the right kind of gloves can help you make a great scarf. Compression gloves put a light compression on your fingers to soothe arthritis, pain and swelling. These versatile gloves are great for knitting and typing as they are warm. All of your friends are going to love your Gryffindor scarf when you have completed it, and they’ll want you to start making scarves for them too!!
